March 27, 2020 update:
*****IN-OFFICE SICK VISITS IN THE AFTERNOONS ONLY****
The Kidz Docs has temporarily cancelled walk-in hours due to the current coronavirus outbreak.
We have expanded the hours our office phone hours. Phones will now be answered by our staff during the following hours:
We continue to have a protected healthy block in the morning for newborns, well visits, and vaccines. In addition, we now are able to offer well visits by telemedicine for ages 2 years and above.
All doctors and nurse practitioners are currently offering telemedicine appointments for consults and sick visits due to increased demand. All sick patients currently need a televisit first before being seen in person. Our staff will help guide you how to sign up for the portal, and download the Healow app.
We would especially like to encourage the following groups of patients to make a telemedicine appointment at this time.
1. Patients with asthma and seasonal allergies. We want to make sure your asthma plan is up to date, and your medications are appropriate. We will also put a plan in place if your child develops symptoms of coronavirus.
2. Patients with depression, anxiety, ADHD, or other behavior concerns. The transition from school to home, and the change in routines can cause changes in mental health. We can help with behavior modifications, or start/adjust medication when needed.
The current public health emergency is extremely fluid, and we continue to adjust our schedule and procedures to align with the current guidelines. Thank you all for your flexibility as we work to keep our staff and patients safe and healthy! As this situation continues to unfold, we plan to be here for you through it all.
