We take samples for COVID-19 PCR in office and send to lab. Results are usually available in 24 hours
Precautionary measures in our office:
When anyone calls to make appointments, we will be asking additional questions to screen you for exposure to COVID-19
To minimize exposure to our patients we are implementing following policy with immediate effect:
All patients are required to call ahead and schedule time for their visits.
We will not be accepting walk-ins. No exceptions
Furthermore we are segregating sick child visits and well child visits/physicals for next few weeks as follows:
If your child has a mild sickness, please try to stay home and manage. We can give you advice over phone or use Tele-medicine when needed.
If you feel your child is sick and needs to be seen, please make appointment and when you arrive for appointment, please stay in your car and give us a call from parking lot and we can get you directly to the exam room when ready.
We appreciate your cooperation with these measures to keep our children safe.
Guidelines on management and treatment of COVID-19 are constantly being updated by CDC and we will also adapt our approach as the guidelines as they are published.
If you have a history of international travel or known COVID exposure, please follow latest CDC guidelines for quarantining and other precautions..
