We would like to give an update about how our office is handling the Coronavirus- COVID19 infections in our area. Our main concern is the health and well being of our patients and their families, and we have implemented protocols to maximize safety.
Your family’s health is our primary concern, and in order to reduce the risk to our patients and their families, we have discontinued our morning early bird urgent care appointments.
We ask you NOT to bring children with cough and fever to the office without an appointment. Call for instructions.
We ask families to limit the number of caregivers bringing the child to the office.
We ask families to bring only the patient to the office, no siblings, unless there is no alternative.
We ask people over 60 to avoid the office unless there is absolutely no alternative.
We ask all families to familiarize themselves with our telemedicine platform, Doxy.me. To enter our virtual waiting room, click the link on our web page https://www.cvpediatrics.com/services/
We strongly encourage you to consider virtual visits when appropriate.
We will be scheduling telemedicine visits throughout the day.
If your child has fever and cough and is not ill-appearing, call the office first. If you think your child needs medical attention, please call us and we will coordinate appropriate care and testing.
Remember that washing hands and avoiding sick people is very important to staying healthy. There is currently no need to wear masks unless instructed by medical professionals.
We will continue to be accessible and provide the level of care you have come to expect.
We have protocols and supplies in place to continue to see your infants, children, teens and young adults for their health care needs. We are providing well care appointments including immunizations for vaccine preventable diseases as well as evaluating injuries, splinting, sutures, allergies, and all the other illnesses.
As things change, we will update our families as quickly as possible.
We are taking all appropriate steps. Please come see us for comprehensive care in your child’s medical home.
Thank you for trusting us with the care of your families.
