COVID-19 Update

During this time of unprecedented crisis, we would like our families to know that we are closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic and implementing guidance from our governing agencies as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics. The health of our patients is our primary concern, and we are implementing safety measures to that effect. We are also concerned about the needs of our chronically ill and younger patients and want to be available for them. So, effective immediately, we are scheduling our well-child checks only in the morning and sick visits only in the afternoon. Please note that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends keeping your well-child appointments for kids younger than 5 so that they can receive their vaccines. We do not want to create another epidemic by not vaccinating or delaying vaccinations.

We are also now offering telemedicine services for sick and consultation visits.

Please stay safe.

He’s wonderful. He’s very calming and reassuring – to me and my daughter! He’s a very gentle person so my daughter responds well to his examinations. For the few medical problems we’ve had he has been very reassuring – listening to my concerns and then saying, “I’m sure she will be fine.” And she is! …

He takes personal interest in each care and remembers lots of details about their health history. He has got a very good relationship with the kids. The kids don’t mind going to the doctor. If I call with a question, he is the one who returns the call and it is not the nurse or anybody else from his staff, who calls back….
