OFFICE SAFETY PROTOCOLS [UPDATED: May 12, 2020]
As far as our clinic is concerned, we are taking some extra precautions that we would like to share with you. For some of these precautions to really work, we will need your cooperation when you come to visit.
If we work together and follow these guidelines we can keep our community and families safe to weather this storm, as we have so many times before. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

DO NOT COME TO CLINIC WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT
[Update: May 12, 2020] We are now seeing all well visits ages. Sick visits will still remain as virtual visits or curbside visits.
[Update: April 17, 2020] Please see important updates below to our safety plan. For the past several weeks we have been conducting all initial sick visits as virtual visits. If your provider decides that you need to be seen in person, then we will conduct the visit curbside, at your vehicle.
[March 13, 2020] We are sure many of you are concerned about the new coronavirus discovered in China in December of 2019. Since this new strain of the coronavirus was discovered in 2019 it has been given the short-hand name COVID-19. Recently COVID-19 has reached our shores and cases have been reported in Houston. And while it is prudent that we all take measures to keep our families safe, it is important that we don’t panic. Please take common sense precautions as recommended by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics, such as washing your hands, not touching your face, and avoiding crowded areas.
If a patient has had contact with a positive COVID-19, or suspects they have COVID-19, parent must call their county health department. Please also call our office to keep us in the loop. County health department numbers are given below.
[Update: June 1, 2020] We’d like to thank each of you for bearing with us throughout this pandemic. We are doing our best to continue providing medical care for your children that is both personal and convenient.
Unfortunately, we are still struggling to see the volume of patients we need to see in order to offer our extended evening and weekend hours.
We were hoping that by summertime we would be able to offer our late night hours and Saturday office hours again. However, it does not look like this will be the case. Additionally we will be canceling our Saturday morning virtual visits for the time being.
So until further notice, our office hours will be:
Monday – Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm
Saturday and Sunday Closed
Please remember that it is still important that you keep up with your routine well visits! The risk from children not keeping up with their vaccines or not detecting other preventative illnesses poses a greater risk to their well being than COVID-19.
We know this is a difficult time for many of our families as well, and we pray that each and every one of you stays safe and secure.
