We are currently scheduling flu clinics. We have a variety of options for flu clinics including weekdays, nights, and weekends. Call today to make an appointment for your child!
Effective immediately, all patients, both sick and well, will be entering the building through the front entrance. If your child is sick, please remain in your car when you arrive, and call our front desk to check in. We will call you in when a room is available, and you will enter through the front of the building to that room. When your appointment is complete, you will leave out the back door of the building. If you are well, you may come right into the front entrance to check in. When your appointment is complete, return to the front desk only if you need to schedule a follow up well appointment. Otherwise, please leave out the back door of the building.
We will continue to update these guidelines for our office as needed, based on changing volumes of sick and well patients, and to maintain social distancing within our building. We remind you that we ask only 1 well parent to accompany their child/children during an office visit (except for newborn appointments), and that faces should be covered with a mask or other similar covering when entering the building.
Thank you to all of our families for working with us during these complicated times. We are very pleased with how well things have been going in our offices and we owe that to our families, staff and nurses for their hard work and for graciously accommodating us as our guidelines continue to change and evolve over time.
Pediatric Associates now has the ability to conduct some office visits via Telemedicine. We will provide this service through the current COVID-19 public health emergency, during usual office hours (9:00am-4:00pm for Telemedicine) on weekdays.
Our nurses and office staff will evaluate your request for a Telemedicine visit based on our ability to perform the necessary physical assessment that may be somewhat limited by the video platform. Our provider will remain in a private examining room or office throughout the visit. It will not be recorded.
We will conduct the visit via the Zoom video conferencing platform easily downloaded from the app store or other sources of apps, or accessed online at Zoom.us. You do not need to have an account with Zoom, you simply access the app or website, push the "join" button and enter the I.D. number provided by our office.* Please be patient waiting as we may not be immediately on time. Feel free to wait in the Zoom virtual waiting room or call the office if the wait time seems overly extended.
We will evaluate your child and recommend diagnostics and treatments based on our assessment. We will provide follow-up care in person if or when that becomes essential.
