Office Procedure Update
We are excited to announce that we have re-opened our main waiting rooms at both of our offices for our well patients. Sick patients will come into the waiting room to check-in at the front desk. Depending on your child’s symptoms, you may be asked to return to your car or wait outside until your provider is ready to see you. At that time, you will receive a call with instructions as to which door to enter. Please understand these are precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all of our patients and families.
In addition, we are resuming our walk-in hours. We realize these are very convenient for our families. Walk-in hours are posted at the side of this page. Thank you for your patience with us as we have done our best to provide the best medical treatment throughout the pandemic. We look forward to seeing you and your children every time.
Lastly, we require face masks to be worn by all people who enter our offices, ages 2 and above. If you arrive without a mask at your appointment, you will be given one and asked to wear it through your entire time in our office.

Back to School Information
As children prepare for this school year, we know parents have a lot of questions about whether to send their child to school or choose online learning at home. We believe the benefits of in classroom learning outweigh the risks of illness, as is the stance of the American Academy of Pediatrics. For more information on their advice for parents, please visit the AAP’s Healthy Children website.
We also support our schools’ efforts to protect children and staff by wearing a mask. We will not write letters or otherwise give permission for a child to NOT wear a mask in all school required settings, including the bus.
Also, if your school is going to require a sports physical for your child to participate in school sports this year and your child is up to date on their check-up/well child visit, we will complete those forms for you. The exception is if your child has had a positive Covid-19 test in the past year. Those students will need to undergo an exam to ensure your child is healthy enough to participate in sports. Please allow 5-10 days for completion of forms, as the volume we receive is great this time of year. When the form is completed, you will receive a phone call to pick it up. If your child is not current with their annual check-up, they will have to be seen in the office to receive their physical and get the form signed.
