What to Expect
COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments
We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from covid-19. Every patient is allowed to have a maximum of one parent or caregiver accompany them. Everyone else, including siblings of any age, may not come along. When you come for your appointment, you will see that we’re requiring everyone to wear masks at all times, cleaning check-in and registration desks between visits, screening for symptoms at all entrances and have set up our spaces to encourage social distancing. Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during COVID-19 (video). Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place.
- Please bring any recent X-rays or CT (computed tomography) scans to your child's appointment.
- Please note that we do not perform surgery during your child's first visit. This is when we evaluate your child's condition. If needed, we schedule surgery for a different day. We usually ask your child to come back for a check after surgery (post-operative visit).
