We pray that you are all doing well through this difficult time. Pinellas County has issued a Safer at Home order meaning everyone should stay home with exception of essential activities (medical care, getting food, going to jobs deemed essential). We ask that everyone heed these recommendations to help slow the spread of this virus.

We will remain open to care for your children’s health needs, but we have implemented some changes to help protect the health of our patient families and staff. We are currently only seeing healthy children during the morning hours for visits such as healthy check-ups, immunizations and follow up visits for noninfectious conditions. In the afternoons, currently 3 PM and later we will see our ill patients. Prior to your appointment, you will be asked screening questions to determine if a medical visit is in the child’s best interest. To reduce the risk of COVID19 exposure we ask that only one caregiver accompany the child to their visit, and when possible, do not bring in siblings or other children who are not being examined. We will not have our sick patients in the waiting room. At the time of your appointment you will be given direction as to when to come up to the office at which time you will be escorted through our back entrance directly into an exam room. In some instances we may even be able to utilize telemedicine, however this is very new for us and there are only a few conditions which will qualify. This is a very fluid situation and things will likely continue to change quickly. Please know that the health and safety of your child is our top priority, and we are trying our best to provide care for your child in the most effective and safe way that we can. Stay safe, please practice social distancing and keep washing those hands!
