Office Hours

Our office will be open modified hours during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are opening at 9:00am, and will continue to see patients until finished for the day.  Our closing time will be dependent on necessity.

Minimizing Risk

All patients are being seen by appointment only.  Upon arrival for your appointment, please call our office from our parking lot to "check in".  We will call you back when we have an exam room ready for you and your child.  The patient and MAXIMUM ONE ADULT will be admitted into the office and brought directly back into an examination room where they will remain for the entire process of check in, examination, and discharge.  The patient and their parent MUST BE WEARING A FACE COVERING OF SOME TYPE.  This can be a scarf, a bandana, a homemade mask, or a KN-95 mask.  Whatever you have to reduce the risk.There will be no contact with other patients and the rooms are sanitized between each patient.  Again, please do not bring any other children who are not being seen at the visit as they WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE OFFICE.  https://heavy.com/news/2020/04/covid-19-cloth-mask-bandana/
