Updated Clinic Workflow Relating to COVID-19
With the constant influx of new information daily regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) our office is taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, families, and staff. Please read the information below.
In order to minimize the risk of exposure, we have implemented a workflow during this time. We have designated separate entrances for sick and well appointments. Our newborns will continue to enter through Suite 28, and we encourage you to enter the building from the east entrance (handicapped parking lot/ramp). We are asking that only one parent or guardian enter the clinic with your sick or well child. Of course, both parents are welcome to enter for their newborn appointments.
Additionally, we are separating our staff into teams, which will consist of a group of doctors, nurses, and medical assistants seeing well checks and newborns only, and another team seeing sick appointments only. Upon arrival, we ask that patients wait in their car and call our office at 512-458-5323.At that time, you will be asked a series of questions to determine the appropriate entrance and room number for your appointment. We will call or text when an exam room is available. Based on your symptoms and screening questions, you and your child will be provided a mask to wear upon entering the clinic. The mask should cover both your nose and mouth securely.
Although it is a personal decision, our physicians are encouraging the importance of well check appointments. These appointments are necessary to assess growth, development, and to continue on the recommended vaccination schedule. We will continue to keep you informed. Please check out website often for new data and links to important information relating to COVID-19.
We thank you for joining in our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff.
