During the summer there tends to be an increased need for physicals as parents prepare their children for school and fall sports. Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, there is still uncertainty what the coming school year and sports seasons will look like. Despite these uncertainties, it is still recommended to continue routine child and adolescent well visits. These well visits are important to stay up to date. Well checks include routine vaccines, continued weight monitoring, and performance of routine screenings such as development, hearing, vision, and mental health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics does recommend continuing with routine well child/adolescent care at this time. We advise you to schedule these appointments early to avoid last minute time crunches.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic our office has made some changes so that we can help minimize spread of infection and keep our families as healthy as possible. Currently, we have designated waiting rooms and exam rooms for non-sick visits, such as physicals, and separate designated rooms for sick visits. We are currently scheduling all well visits in the morning and all sick visits in the afternoon and having all healthy families use a different entrance than sick families. Additionally, we continue to utilize rigorous cleaning measures and we are wearing masks for every patient encounter.
Our evening hours have been suspended for now, but we will continue to assess the COVID19 pandemic recommendations and resume the evening hours when we feel it is safe for our families and staff. We have made these changes to help support the safety of our families.
Please feel free to call our office for questions or concerns regarding physicals, well child care or the current coronavirus pandemic.
