COVID-19 Update


We hope you are staying safe during this ever-changing time. We are meeting frequently to figure out how to best meet your families’ health needs. Although our practice has seen minimal effect from coronavirus in terms of the number of patients diagnosed with COVID and severity of symptoms, we continue to maintain safe COVID practices.  We have separate waiting rooms for well children and patients who have symptoms consistent with coronavirus, we continue to follow social distance guidelines, we wear protective masks, and we sanitize frequently.

Our current update is as follows:


  • We continue to see patients during our usual walk-in schedule. You can be seen without an appointment from 8 am - 11 am AND 2 pm - 3 pm Monday - Friday, and at 10 am Saturday and Sunday. We have a separate waiting room for the walk-ins patients (Waiting Room 2). If you would like to see a specific provider please call to schedule an appointment.
  • The office will continue to remain open 7 days/week.
  • Come in for your health maintenance well visits! Along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, we strongly recommend you bring your children in for their check ups.
  • We are now offering COVID testing in our office. We have rapid antigen testing, rapid antibody testing, and PCR testing. In addition to testing our patients, depending on our supply, we may be able to test parents of our patients. For parents, we will give a receipt that can be submitted to the insurance company. Please let us know if you have questions about the cost of these tests. 
  • Whether you are coming for a walk-in or for a scheduled appointment and you know you would like a COVID test for any of your family members, please enter and check out through Waiting Room 2. Any changes will be announced on our COVID Hotline (see below)

Influenza Vaccine Update


During late summer/early fall, please check this website, Instagram or Facebook for important updates on this year’s flu shot availability and how to schedule your flu vaccines.

Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone over age six months starting in late summer or fall. If this is the first time your child is getting a flu vaccine and they are under nine years old, they should receive two vaccines separated by at least one month.

When available, we will have both the injected and nasal spray vaccines.

When you schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine, note that the appointment is only for a vaccine - you will not be seen by a doctor or nurse practitioner. If your child has any signs or symptoms of illness, please call the office prior to coming in for a vaccine.

Supply changes frequently. In addition to Facebook and Instagram, please also check our flu information phone message prior to coming in for updates and vaccine availability.
