Dear Patients, Friends, and Families,
We continue to work hard to keep our office open, safe, clean, and ready to take care of all of you. We have successfully transitioned our “Well” visits to the morning and are keeping separate rooms for newborns and infants. We are cleaning fastidiously and thoroughly between each patient, at lunch and the end of the day. We will start ZOOM meetings with our staff this week to prepare for how we will open up to a more “regular” schedule when it is safe.
Maintaining Well Visits and Vaccines are critical to prevent a second epidemic. Children are especially vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases. COVID continues to be milder in most children, thankfully. While you may have heard of an “antibody test” and are curious (as are we) about whether you or your family may have had COVID and if you have antibodies, unfortunately, these tests are not yet reliable. There are no FDA approved, accurate tests yet. When we have reliable, sensitive and specific tests available, we will let you know!
Please wear a mask when you come to visit and remember to not come if you are sick with any COVID related symptoms (the CDC Website remains an excellent resource for COVID related symptoms and management). Children under 2 do not need to wear masks. We continue to limit visits to one caregiver and minimize time in the waiting room.
Many of our patients have taken advantage of our telehealth options which work well for most "Sick Visits". We still will see your child in the office if needed in the afternoons by appointment with special precautions in place.
Many children and families are feeling stressed and struggling with our mental health during this long time “staying safe at home.” Please know we are here for you and have resources available to help you and your children as needed.
Stay safe! Please don’t hesitate to call with questions or concerns. Take care of yourselves with fresh air, good nutrition, sleep, and patience.
Drs. dos Santos, Litwin, and Schwab
