Important Information Regarding COVID-19: 

 

We are aware that there may be a lot of anxiety and questions regarding the recent spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we want you to know that we are here for you and your family.

Fortunately, most children have been recovering well from the coronavirus. The current recommendation of the CDC is to keep your child home if they have a mild upper respiratory symptom and to call our office with questions of concerns. Unfortunately, our office is not equipped to test for coronavirus, if this is something you would like done please call us for guidance

Our priority is to keep you, your children, and our staff safe, so our office is taking the following precautions.

Office Hours: The office will have reduced office hours over the next few weeks. Rest assured, Pediatric Associates of Cheshire is here for you and your family during this difficult time. While we may be scaling back our office hours, our physicians will continue to be available 24/7 for urgent matters.

Well Visits: Over the next few weeks we will only be scheduling well visits in the morning to prevent our healthy patients from being exposed to the virus. We recommend that all patients keep their regularly scheduled well visits. It is important for children to continue to receive their vaccinations on time to protect against more serious illness such as Measles and Pertussis.

Sick Visits: We will be seeing a limited number of sick visits in our office every afternoon. As always, we ask that you call our office before coming in as we do not accept walk-in patients. Depending on your child’s symptoms we may ask that you speak to a provider before booking an appointment.  If you or your child has a cough, fever, or shortness of breath we ask that you speak to a physician before coming in. We ask that you limit the number of family members who accompany patients into the office and to try to leave other siblings or grandparents home when possible to limit exposure.

Telehealth Services: In an effort to limit the need for children with minor illness to come into the office, we are currently working on setting up telehealth services to treat patients when appropriate and you may see a charge to your insurance for these services.

We are making every effort to minimize time spent in the waiting room, but if you prefer to wait in your car please call our office when you arrive. We are also removing all books and magazines from our waiting room and sanitizing our office periodically throughout the day.

What we know about COVID-19 changes every day.  This is a “novel” virus which means it is new to all of us and explains why infection is so widespread once it hits a geographical area.  We have all had other coronavirus infections, just not THIS coronavirus infection.

Our Mission:

  • At Pediatric Associates, our goal is to provide the highest quality medical care while maintaining an environment that both child and parent find comfortable and reassuring.
  • We believe that the well being of your child is our number one priority, and this begins with your initial phone call to our practice. Our highly trained staff will do their best to accommodate your every need.
  • Our practice is unique in two respects. First, we have only one office located here in Cheshire. And second, only board certified pediatric physicians treat your children.  We do not have any nurses, physician assistants, or advanced practice registered nurses (APRN’s). You choose one of our excellent physicians as your child’s primary pediatrician, and they will see that doctor for all of their well care and the vast majority of their sick visits.
