Can I come to PM Pediatrics if I am concerned?

We can perform an assessment of your child. We ask that you please call us prior to your visit. Please also call us upon arrival and await further instruction prior to entering the office so we can address your needs promptly as well as adequately protect staff and other patients.

What is PM Pediatrics doing to ensure safety of others? 

To promote social distancing, we are offering telemedicine services for those who are hesitant to come to our offices, as well as allowing patients who do come to the office to wait in their cars. We are limiting our visitors to one guardian per patient.  Depending on each office’s layout, we are separating patients sitting in our lobby as much as possible. All of our offices are always held to a high standard of hygiene and safety and we are following CDC guidelines, sanitizing our equipment, and cleaning our exam rooms thoroughly during business hours and again overnight. We have screening protocols in place starting at our front door with signs to direct patients to immediately speak with our front desk staff if they meet any of the screening criteria. Our exam rooms are kept closed at all times to reduce the spread of germs.

For more questions about COVID-19 and how to stay healthy, please visit the CDC website for a list of frequently asked questions.
