Our pediatricians believe exceptional care is obtained when there is an on-going relationship between the doctor and patient.  We want to be lifelong partners in your child's health, and accomplish this goal through shared discussions and decision making at in person visits.  Additionally we provide sound educational information for pediatric and adolescent care via accredited websites, books, and other resources.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

In the current state of the global COVID19 pandemic, we are altering our office practices as needed and reevaluating changes on a frequent basis.  It is important to continue physicals as well as vaccinations against other diseases, and we are seeing physicals as well as some sick visits in person.  We ask that each patient be accompanied by only one person if possible.  Upon arrival CALL FROM YOUR CAR to check-in as well as verify insurance and contact information.  You will be instructed when it is time to come into the building wearing a mask covering both nose and mouth, and you will be directed to an examination room rather than the waiting room.  We have ample rooms to utilize with cleaning performed each visit, and common areas and handles are cleaned several times daily.  When confirming appointments we will ask screening questions pertaining to any travel as well as the health of everyone in the home and may defer your appointment temporarily if it is in the best interest of all.

Sick visits are available daily, and the physician will determine in each case if the visit can be via telehealth or if needs to be conducted in person.  Always CALL HERE FIRST; many urgent care and emergency room visits can be avoided or better served by your physician, saving you time and stress.  We ask that after-hours calls be kept to truly urgent concerns.

We thank you all for working with us and the entire community in these challenging times. Be safe, be healthy.
