** Important Information about COVID-19 **
Updated as of 06.30.2020
As of July 01, 2020 we will transition to seeing both sick and well patients at the same location. Well Checks and Newborns will be seen during morning business hours, with sick visits being seen in the afternoon at all locations. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work to accommodate all of our patients while continuing to make safety a priority.
We will continue to ask that all patients check in from their car when they arrive at our offices. Once ready, we will call you and have you enter directly into your exam room. At this time we will also continue to only allow one parent to accompany the patient into the room.
Anyone age 2 or older (regardless of appointment type) should wear a facial covering when entering any of our Preferred Pediatrics locations. We will also take temperatures of all parents entering our offices.
Preferred Pediatrics has initiated telemedicine or a virtual visit. We will continue to offer this service, please call to schedule if you feel this is appropriate for your concerns.
In accordance with current AAP recommendations, we are still scheduling well checks. It is important to keep your child current on his/her wellness care during this time. Preventative healthcare protects our children and communities. If your child requires a sports physical for the 2020-2021 school year, this is a great time to get that scheduled.
In most patients COVID-19 will be a mild illness. If you suspect you may be infected and are only mildly ill, please self quarantine for 14 days. Please make an appointment for any concerns.
FOR CHILDREN WHO WHEEZE: IF THERE IS A RESPIRATORY CONCERN, PLEASE BRING YOUR INHALERS OR MDIS TO YOUR APPOINTMENTS.
