  1. Well child scheduled appointments have resumed. Efficiency in getting patients in and out of the office is our priority. This will decrease the exposure of our patients, their families, and our staff.
  2. All office visits require an appointment. There are no walk-ins accepted so please call and make an appointment before coming to the office.
  3. If parent/guardian requesting a sick visit because of respiratory concerns, you will need to speak with a physician prior to making appointment. If a physician is not available at the time of the call, leave a message and a physician will call you that day.

    • Patient and parent/guardian will be removed from the waiting room immediately and placed in an exam room.
