COVID-19 UPDATE 

March 16, 2020

Dear ABC Families,

     We are here for you at this difficult and unexpected time of COVID-19. Please know that we are doing everything possible to understand the rapidly evolving situation and to protect our patients, families and staff while continuing to provide excellent pediatric care in a safe environment. In order to further reduce the potential spread of germs, we are implementing the following changes effective March 17, 2020:

-We are cancelling our WALK-IN clinic until further notice.

-We will be scheduling WELL patients in the morning by appointment. At this time, we highly recommend our well patients continue to receive important preventative care and vaccines. Delay of vaccination is not advisable and potentially harmful.  If your child has ANY sick symptoms, please reschedule the WELL visit.

-We will be seeing SICK patients in the afternoon and evening by appointment. Please call first for triage as you may not need to come in. All patients and family members with SICK symptoms, must wear a MASK. For those patients who feel they cannot wait until the afternoon to be seen, please call our office. We are NOT doing testing for COVID-19 at this time.

-Please check in at the tent or front desk. Sick patients should return to their cars and wait to be called before coming in. Well patients have the option of waiting in their car or coming into the well waiting room.

-If you are sick, please call for screening as you may not need to come in.

-Please limit the number of family members coming into the office to the patient and a caregiver if at all possible.

-We are working with our EHR company on the capability for telemedicine visits.

-We are continuing to thoroughly clean all office areas and equipment.

-We are using personal protective equipment according to recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The information is changing rapidly and we are working to stay up to date and keep you informed and we may have additional changes in our procedures. Please see the CDC website for more information at:

Our highest priority is the health of our patients, families and staff. Thank you for placing your trust in us. Teamwork and positivity are very important in times like these and we thank you for the reassurance, understanding and compassion you are giving your children and community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns and the patient portal is an excellent way to do that.

 

We are here for you!
