Virtual visits are remote appointments conducted by either telephone or video methods. This is commonly referred to as telemedicine. We invite parents and guardians to take advantage of this system which allows you to remain home but receive the same attention you would receive in the office. Conditions or concerns suitable for virtual visits are the following: ADHD, asthma, anxiety, depression, migraines (already diagnosed), eczema, constipation, menstrual period concerns, and coordination of services for children with special needs. Certain acute problems like diaper rashes, diarrhea, and pink eye can often be ‘treated’ by a virtual visit. If your provider feels that your concern cannot be adequately addressed, then an in-office appointment will be scheduled.
We strongly recommend that you keep appointment for scheduled vaccinations. This is especially important for children under 2 years of age who are most vulnerable to serious infections such as whooping cough, measles, pneumonia and meningitis. We have modified our office so that well children are kept separate from sick patients. When you arrive for an appointment, you will remain in your car until you are called into the office. Exam rooms will be sanitized after each patient/parent has been seen, and all lab testing will be performed inside the exam room. Masks are worn by all clinical staff, and we require parents and children older than 2 years (as tolerated) to wear a mask inside the office. We understand the fears of potential harm caused by the new coronavirus strain (covid-19), and we are committed to reducing your risk of exposure. We have many employees working from home in order to reduce the number of people inside our building.
