Dear Families, 


     We continue to closely follow the situation with Covid-19. Due to the fluid nature of the pandemic, we need to make frequent changes to our office policies. In order to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible, we are currently implementing the following policies:


  • The office will continue to remain open 7 days/week, but as of March 15 we are temporarily suspending our walk-in hours. We will continue to see sick visits, but by appointment only. Please call the office to schedule an appointment. 
  • We have a separate waiting room with a separate entrance for patients with fever and cough. When you schedule an appointment you will be instructed which waiting room to use. 
  • We are doing our best to keep well visits separate from sick visits, but please call first if you have a scheduled well visit and your child is sick. 
  • We are not currently equipped to test for Covid-19 in the office



Please continue to take care of yourself and your family. Thank you for your patience.
