Step by Step Pediatrics COVID-19 response
We understand that when there is a health concern that is affecting our community, it is important for us, as your health-care providers, to give resources that are helpful to our patients. We are also offering telehealth for some illnesses and conditions.
Resources for those who have questions about exposures to Covid 19
We are scheduling well-visits in the morning thru early afternoon and sick-visits in the late afternoon. If you are scheduled for a well-visit and have a fever or cough, please call the office to reschedule.
We are requesting all patients over 2 years of age, and all parents, to wear a face-covering in our office.
All sick patients with fever and cough will be screened when making an appointment. These patients will be discussed with the staff before being scheduled.
To limit exposure, please minimize the number of people attending the appointment. Leave siblings at home if possible.
All fever and cough patients will be entering the sick waiting room.
All exam room surfaces including beds and chairs are wiped down by disinfectants between patients. We are completely cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces multiple times per day.
Our medical staff received additional training on respiratory droplet precautions. All staff are screened for fever and symptoms at the beginning of the day.
Please be patient with us if we need to reschedule your appointment.
Telehealth is here!
Telehealth is here! Due to the covid epidemic we are implementing telehealth for some illnesses or conditions. Most insurance plans are covering this service during this pandemic. Please check with your insurance company to verify coverage. We currently are NOT doing telehealth for well visits. We are using a Zoom platform for the Video Visits. Please call the office to get more information!
