We are striving to maintain the best and safest policies for communicating with our families and providing care for our patients during the current coronavirus pandemic. The office remains open for both well and sick visits at this time. The office flow has been modified to reduce the potential of exposure to anyone else's illness during a visit with us.
Our daytime telephone advice and after hours advice lines are still available to you. We can also arrange an online pediatric consultation with Dr. Murnane or Dr. Fennell in place of an office visit in certain instances. Online consults can be scheduled when appropriate through an initial contact with us by telephone.
Non-urgent or routine office visits can be deferred and rescheduled to a later date if desired.
We hope to continue assisting you in caring for your children as we all work together through this difficult time. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
The NC Department of Health and Human Services has released updated information and guidelines regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. The information sheet may be accessed at <a href="docs/COVID19.pdf">this link</a>.
With the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 virus in this country and around the world we are implementing some changes in our office routine.
If you are concerned that your child is ill please call the office to discuss their symptoms with us before coming in. This will help us decide whether an office visit is needed or not. Many people are ill with the flu or other viruses that are unrelated to COVID-19. Some concerns may be addressed without an office visit.
The office routine for incoming patients is being changed to better separate children who are ill from those coming in for wellness visits. Masks will be made available to anyone who is coughing or febrile and there will be a division of exam rooms for sick and well visits. Our check-in and check-out routines will also be modified.
We will continue to adapt our office routines as needed and follow the evolving recommendations from the NC Health Department and the CDC.
Due to possible icy road conditions in the early morning tomorrow the office will have a delayed opening time of 11 AM. For non-urgent matters and to reschedule appointments please call after that time.
Due to the inclement weather and ongoing potential for hazardous road conditions the office will not be open today. Cancelled appointments due to the weather can be rescheduled once the office reopens.<br><br>With the possibility of refreezing overnight and icy road conditions tomorrow morning the office may open on a delayed schedule. Please check back here for an update before coming to the office.
