To our dear Pediatric Associates families,
Your safety while delivering expert care remains our number one priority during these challenging times. While the guidelines continue to evolve as COVID19 infections increase in our community, visits to see a physician are still considered essential under the strictest government orders. While we are offering telemedicine appointments for some visits, coming to the office for important vaccines, to treat an injury, or to evaluate a sick child remains necessary. We continue to put an abundance of caution in place to prevent contact with any other patients. Families are given a number to text upon arrival to check in and either directly enter a room when available, or a doctor will come outside in certain circumstances. Our providers are wearing at least masks and gloves for even well encounters and all surfaces including chairs, tables and door knobs are sanitized after every visit.
Your stress about finances, food insecurity, navigating new educational frontiers and care for vulnerable family members is constantly on our minds, but keeping our doors safely open to you is one stress that you do not need to bear.
As always, we are here for you and welcome your calls and questions,
Your doctors at Pediatric Associates of Charlottesville
