downloadYes, we are open.

We’re recommending that you bring your children in for their well visits as planned. Regularly scheduled vaccines should not be postponed, especially at this critical time.

Beginning today, March 16th, we are SUSPENDING WALK IN SICK VISITS so that we can schedule appointments in such a way to limit unnecessary exposure for families and staff.

So please call ahead with questions about illness, and to schedule an appointment.

Here are a few changes we’ve made to ensure that our office is as safe and hygienic as possible:

  • After checking in for your visit, we will either escort you directly to a room or ask you to wait in our beautiful courtyard or your car until your room is ready.
  • If your child has a cough and fever, we ask that you call us from your car upon arrival. We’ll let you know as soon as your room is ready.  No waiting in the waiting room for now!
  • Please limit the number of family members accompanying your child to a visit. Whenever possible, siblings, older relatives, and anyone who is ill should stay at home.

We will be posting regularly with reliable information and links about Coronavirus.  So stay tuned.
