CORONAVIRUS - OUR PRACTICE IS ENACTING SOME NEW POLICIES. CLICK HERE

IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE VULNERABLE POPULATION OF PATIENTS THAT WE TAKE CARE OF, THE PRACTICE IS ENACTING SOME NEW POLICIES TO SAFEGUARD OUR PATIENTS AND ENSURE THAT OUR STAFF WILL BE AVAILABLE TO CONTINUE CARING FOR YOUR CHILDREN.

ALL SICK PATIENTS WILL BE SEEN THROUGH OUR URGENT CARE AT THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING. ALL WELL CHILDREN, INCLUDING PHYSICALS, RECHECKS, ASTHMA, ADHD AND ADD FOLLOWUPS WILL BE SEEN AT HUNT CLUB PEDIATRICS REGULAR OFFICE.

FOR ANY PATIENTS THAT MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA,

FEVER >100.4 IN THE PAST 24 HOURS

COUGH AND SHORTNESS OF BREATH

HISTORY OR SUSPECTED CURRENT DIAGNOSIS OF FLU OR PNEUMONIA

HISTORY OF EXPOSURE TO INDIVIDUALS FROM HIGH-RISK EXPOSURE REGIONS FOR COVID-19.

PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE SO YOU CAN BE TRIAGED.

IF YOU DO COME TO THE OFFICE WITH A PERSON THAT MEETS THESE CRITERIA, YOU WILL BE ADVISED TO STAY IN YOUR CAR AND CALL FOR A STAFF MEMBER TO COME OUT TO YOU, SO AN ASSESSMENT WILL BE MADE IF POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE SAFE TO BE EXPOSED TO OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF.

  • WE CANNOT PERFORM THE CORONAVIRUS TESTING AT OUR OFFICE.

SHOULD YOU SUSPECT THAT YOU OR YOUR CHILD MAY HAVE COVID-19, PLEASE CALL THE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH OR LOCAL EMERGENCY ROOM FOR ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE
IN MOST CASES, HOME MANAGEMENT WILL BE SUFFICIENT WITH SELF ISOLATION.

TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OUR PATIENTS, WE EXPECT TO IMPLEMENT TELEMEDICINE (SYNCHRONOUS AUDIO/VIDEO SESSIONS) FOR FOLLOW UP VISITS TO REDUCE RISK OF OFFICE EXPOSURE AND IMPLEMENT SOCIAL DISTANCING. THIS IS CURRENTLY BEING OFFERED AS CASH SERVICE WHILE WE NEGOTIATE WITH INSURANCES TO COVER THIS TYPE OF SERVICE WITHIN THE PARAMETERS OF OUR CURRENT CONTRACTS. WE HOPE TO CONVINCE THEM OF THE UTILITY OF THIS MODALITY TO ALLOW FOR CONTINUED ACTIVE AND SAFE CARE OF OUR POPULATION.

FINALLY, PLEASE STAY SAFE, WASH YOUR HANDS AVIDLY (RECOMMEND REVIEWING CDC HANDWASHING TECHNIQUE), IF NECESSARY, USE HAND SANITIZER OR SOMETHING CONTAINING 0VER 60% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, AVOID SICK/FEBRILE/COUGHING INDIVIDUALS. BE CAREFUL AROUND THE ELDERLY AS WE MUST DO OUR BEST TO PROTECT THEM.
