We consider you and your child essential members of the healthcare team. Please ask us questions about your child's visit at any time.

COVID-19 Information:

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 your COVID-19 (video) (en Español).
  • Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place.
