  • October is prime time to vaccinate, but we will vaccinate all through the season.

  • A brief "nurse-only" appointment will be necessary to get your child's vaccine.

  • Daytime, late afternoon/early evening, and some weekend appointments will be available.

PANDEMIC

PRECAUTIONS

During this pandemic, we are striving to meet the needs of our sick patients while maximizing the safety of our well patients.  As such, we have made the following changes to our practice:

  • Morning walk-in sick clinic is suspended until further notice.

  • Mornings will be reserved for well patients or patients who have non-infectious issues.

  • Afternoons are currently designed to accommodate both sick and well patients.  Every effort will be made to keep well and sick patients separated.

  • Telemedicine visits are available for certain problems.

  • Remote registration and payment is available online.

  • Waiting in the car until ready to be seen will be optional for well patients and required for sick patients.

  • Physicians and staff will mask during visits, as well as glove and gown when appropriate.

  • We recommend that all parents and older children wear masks in the office.

  • Decision to test for COVID-19 will be made on a case-by-case basis by the doctor and parent/patient.

Please note that we recommend all small children in need of vaccines to come to their regularly scheduled well visit.  If vaccine rates reduce during this pandemic, all children will be more at risk for vaccine preventable diseases.
