We have successfully started virtual visits this week in our efforts to limit Coronavirus contact within our office. Tomorrow's Saturday clinic will be entirely virtual for all sick visits. After completing the virtual visit, our providers will determine appropriate steps if an in-office test or physical exam are necessary.
We hope that in the coming weeks we will be able to do a majority of our sick visits by virtual streaming, further minimizing the viral exposure to our office.
Consistent with the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, we will continue seeing our in office well visits visits. We will keep these visits protected by doing them in the AM when our office has been cleaned and is isolated from sick patients. Our rooming practices and office flow have allowed us to successfully practice social distancing while providing these important services. Additionally, we continue to aggressively screen our employees for any signs of illness that may pose a risk to our patients. Please feel free to call if you have questions about scheduling your child's well visit during our well office hours
