Please see the CDC's official Coronavirus Page for guidance.
Our current plan is to remain open to provide medical care to your children.
We have developed an isolation plan for the office which will protect patients from potentially COVID-19 infected individuals.
Our hours have changed effective 3-23-20: Mon-Fri 9am-5pm.
Please read carefully:
Please call before arriving for instructions:
Our Waiting Room will now be the parking lot to isolate you from other patients while waiting and registering. Our new system will avoid any patient to patient contact. This is for your protection.
We have built temporary walls in the office to develop 3 separate areas for each type of patients.
The office will be decontaminated as usual following standard guidelines regarding rooms and equipment. Additionally, we will be wiping down all surfaces that might have contact with patients. Our staff will use the most available personal protection equipment, at times it will be “hazmat” equipment as medical equipment is not available in quantities needed for this emergency.
Policy: All patients will wait in their cars and be individually escorted directly into a “cleaned” exam room.
1. All patients will be asked to wait in their cars and call the office from your car to announce your arrival.
2. All office doors will be locked. Staff will come out and escort you in. We regret that this will take time; we appreciate your patience.
3. Sick Children will be divided into 2 groups:
a. Respiratory problems (Children will be evaluated by staff in Personal Protective Equipment (Masks, gloves, gowns, etc.)).
If your child has a fever and respiratory symptoms, you will be brought to the walled off respiratory area.
You will be given instructions to wait in your car until someone comes out to escort you directly into an isolation area of the office
b. Other medical problems. Others will also be escorted in through another door directly into other rooms reserved for non-respiratory patients.
4. Well Children will be seen in our separate office (8982 Fern Park Dr.) and provided care by separate staff adjacent to 8988 Fern Park Dr. (SAME BUILDING)
5. Registration and Discharge will take place in your exam room. Please have your insurance cards and copays readily available.
Credit cards are encouraged and may be used over the phone.
6. Upon completion of your visit, you will leave the office immediately.
7. Any additional matters will be addressed by phone.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.
