Coronavirus COVID-19

  • Per New York State recommendations, all adults and children above the age of 2 must wear a surgical mask or equivalent face covering when visiting our office. If you do not have a mask or equivalent face covering, we will try to provide you with one if current supplies allow. 

  • We continue to pre-screen all patients and caregivers for any symptoms suggestive of COVID19.  If your child has COVID19 like symptoms, you can schedule a telehealth visit with your doctor.  If an in-office visit is warranted, we want to be properly prepared for your arrival.  

  • All visits are being screened upon scheduling. For well visits, if you or your child has, or in the last 10 days has had, a fever (100.4 or above), cough, congestion or shortness of breath please call us to reschedule your well appointment.  

  • Telehealth appointments can be scheduled throughout the day, subject to availability.

  • Please do not walk into the office without an appointment.  We will have to turn you away until you are properly phone triaged.  

  • Please be on time. If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment, please call our office to check that we can still see you. We are asking patients to come as close to their appointment times as possible to help us manage social distancing in our office.

  • Please limit the number of people who accompany your child during an in-office visit. No siblings and one parent/caretaker if possible. If both parents have a fever or a cough, please contact us to reschedule or make alternate arrangements.

  • We have removed the toys in our waiting areas and rooms to decrease cross-contamination. Please feel free to bring in your child’s own toys for more ‘contagion friendly’ play.

  • All exam rooms and "high touch surfaces" are cleaned after each visit.

  • Our well visit schedule is open through mid-December.  Please call the office to schedule your well visit if you are due or postponed over the past few months.   

  • We will keep you informed of any scheduling or other changes in our availability and office protocols as we move through this process. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns that you’d like us to address.  

  • Please see the COVID-19 Information tab for more resources and information on testing.
