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.
