PRACTICE UPDATES AS OF MAY 2ND, 2020

We wanted to write to keep the families that we care for in the loop about both some up to date information regarding the current information we have on Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) and what our practice is doing to best serve our community.

Please note that any decisions we make in the coming days and weeks are under the guidance of the current information from sources such as Abington Hospital, the local Health Departments in the area, and the CDC. These decisions may also change each day as more information becomes available and the situation changes in our local area.

CHANGES TO OUR OFFICE TO KEEP OUR KIDDOS AND PROVIDERS SAFE

For in-office appointments, our goal is to take care of everyone, but safely, and separately. To start, when you arrive at our office, please call us from the parking lot, and we will have you wait in your car until a staff member is available to escort you directly to the appropriate exam room through the appropriate entrance. Well-visit patients will be using our back entrance of our office and sick patients will be escorted through our front entrance. Just as there are separate entrances, there are separate rooms being used for well visits and sick visits on different hallways of our building. We are also distancing well appointments and sick appointments by TIME- we will be seeing well-check appointments in the first half of the morning, and then the staff will switch gears (separate entrance to the office, separate rooms) to see sick appointments for the second part of the morning.

If you are healthy, our goal is to KEEP you healthy! That is why we have changed many measures in our practice. We also ask that you play a part- if you are scheduled for a well check and your child is sick AT ALL, we please ask that you reschedule the appointment for a later day so we can keep all of these socially distant measures in place!

TELEMEDICINE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE ALL DAY


If it is more appropriate for your child to be seen via telemedicine visit, we are here to help and one of our doctors can see your children virtually. Issues such as abdominal pain, skin problems, anxiety or mental health concerns, ADHD follow-ups, feeding or nutrition concerns, head injuries and many other common concerns can all be managed by one of our providers using available technology at home (your smartphone or computer).

No matter what, we are available to help you at all times and will have a provider on call 24/7 as usual. We do ask if you have questions which are not of immediate need, if you can call the office between 830-12pm when we have the most staff available to efficiently get back to you.

Lastly, if your family is experiencing financial harships in this time, please still contact us if you have medical concerns about your child. Our first priority is the care of the children in our practice & keeping our children healthy.
