All well-child visits will be done in the first portion of the day to allow our patients to continue to receive crucial well-child care and timely vaccines while minimizing potential exposure to infectious diseases. Sick visits will be conducted after completion of well care and will be by appointment only. We recognize that this may pose an inconvenience to you but feel that this is necessary to protect our vulnerable patients. This is temporary and we will return to normal scheduling as soon as the current situation allows.
