Coronavirus (COVID-19)

5/22/2020
 
All Star Pediatrics has taken multiple steps to deal with Coronavirus Pandemic.   Please read below the changes. 
These were all done to minimize any risk to patients and staff. 


WELL VISITSALL DAY NOW!  (New Concierge Checkin)
We continue to see only "WELL" children in the office with masks as extra precaution. These appointments are scheduled with plenty of time in between patients to minimize patient contact as well.  We also have a Concierge service now where you call from your car when you arrive.  We check you in and give you a room number.  This way you walk straight into your room, bypassing the waiting room and check in. 
 
Please keep your appointment. Due to this pandemic, we are expecting a very busy summer and want to make sure that your kids are still being monitored closely and caught up on vaccines.  Bring only the child with an appointment and one parent (feel free to have the other parent join the conversation on speaker phone).
 
Again we are only seeing "WELL" visits in the office.  Each patient/family is called and "screened" the day before.  We ask that those with illness or any family member with illness or recent exposure to anyone that has tested positive be rescheduled. 
 

SICK VISITS: TELEHEALTH OR CAR VISITS AFTER 3 PM
All sick visits will be screened by the nursing team and then rescreened by the doctor to decide whether the visit is necessary and/or can be accomplished via TELEHEALTH.
Sick visits are available via telehealth all day long, and in the car/parking lot for any patient with respiratory symptoms/fever after 3PM (and the physician wearing full protective gear including masks, goggles, and gloves.) Call us first! We are here to help you!  We look forward to meeting you where you are to provide the care you need!   


TELEHEALTH (all day and after hours) :
We started telehealth and LOVE IT!!  We encourage you to register your children,  so we can expedite an appointment if appropriate.  Our team is scheduling telehealth visit after we speak with you to determine if it is appropriate.  Please register your children by downloading the Anytime Pediatrics app from the app store and registering.  You must register with our practice and our practice code is 4448.  Once you have registered please contact our office to schedule an appointment.   
 

 

In the days ahead we ask that you exercise patience and understanding as we adapt to this new model of care.  We encourage you all to do your part in social distancing by staying home as much as you can and by encouraging your friends and neighbors to do the same. Together as a community we can make a difference in the spread of this illness.
