Welcome to All About Kids Pediatrics
All About Kids Pediatrics is a small practice with pediatric providers who are also moms. We want to know you and your child and we will strive to take the drama out of doctor visits. We are “vaccine friendly”, which means our pediatricians make an extra commitment to provide extensive counseling on vaccines and to accommodate all requests and concerns in regard to vaccines.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, All About Kids has made some changes to the way we are seeing patients.
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we have dedicated the last 1-2 hours of the day for SICK visits. The demand for sick visits is increasing therefore, we have a strict protocol for handling these visits during this time. If our schedule allows for sick visits between 8:30-3:00, we will ask that you remain in your car for check-in and we will escort you into the office via our back door to limit exposure. Please be patient with the office when calling to schedule a sick visit.
We will see WELL CHILD CHECKS from 8:30-3:00. These appointments are considered essential and we are highly recommending keeping any scheduled appointments. If your child is scheduled for a WELL CHILD CHECK and has sick symptoms or has had COVID exposure, YOU MUST RESCHEDULE. Please call the office before the appointment if you have any doubts about whether we will see your child or not.
Additional safety measures:
We are also still offering telemedicine appointments where appropriate to reduce in office visits.
Masks are required for all adults in the building; masks are available at the front desk if you do not have your own.
Please prepare your child for the fact that everyone in the office will be wearing masks and nurses and providers will don full PPE for most sick visits. We have also removed all toys from the front office and the rooms and we are no longer offering the treasure box.
SICK CARE & WELL CHECKS
AAKP will not offer well checks to children who have fever, cough, or nasal congestion at the time of the visit or in the 7 days leading up to the well check.
The providers will not under any circumstances address concerns regarding fever, cough, or nasal congestion during a well check. Parents will be reminded about the below guidelines via our confirmation texts. Parents will also be asked at check-in if they have any concerns outside of normal well care to be addressed. If a parent states that they have questions regarding fever, cough, or nasal congestion, they will be asked to leave the office, the well check will be rescheduled for another time and sick visit can be made during the sick block.
If your child has a fever, cough, or nasal congestion at the time of their well check, we ask that the well check be rescheduled and a sick visit be scheduled to address the fever, cough, or nasal congestion if needed.
If your child has had a fever, cough, or nasal congestion in the 7 days leading up to the well check and you want to address the symptoms, we ask that the well check be rescheduled and a sick visit be made.
