04/13/2020– COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello- Here at Village Pediatrics we are all well and hope that you and your families are too! The VP providers and staff are here to help care for your children ages 0-22. We are seeing scheduled patients in our Southern Village office from 8am to 5pm. Only well infants and children in the morning and sick patients in the afternoon.  

 

We’re also able to treat many problems as Virtual Visits using internet video connection via Face Time or secure Zoom.  If you have a concern that you’ve been meaning to discuss with your child’s doctor, this is an ideal time to call!

 

To keep your family healthy, we recommend scheduling the following types of appointments:

  • Newborns and babies under 2 years of age will be seen in the office for regular checkups (birth and 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months). These visits are so important to your infants health! At each wellness visit:
  • Your baby Is weighed and measured to monitor growth parameters
  • Your baby has a hands on physical exam to screen for serious illness
  • You have time ask questions and we provide anticipatory guidance
  • Your baby receives necessary vaccines (a resurgence in measles or whooping cough would be terrible right now!)
  • Afternoons are for sick visits only- please call for same day appointment
    • Fevers, sore throats, coughs, stomach aches can all be evaluated including any necessary testing
  • Virtual visits using Face Time or Zoom technology-
    • Routine medication follow- up visits for ADHD or mood
    • New onset concerns for ADHD, anxiety, OCD, depression
    • Behavioral concerns such as sleep challenges, picky eating, potty struggles, toddler tantrums, and setting limits with your teen
    • Chronic medical problems

 

  • If your child is behind on vaccines we can conduct a vaccine only visit in your vehicle in our covered parking lot!!

Appointment Policies

We understand that emergencies happen now and then making it impossible to keep your obligations.  We try to keep our schedule open to children who need acute care, and an unexpected cancellation can mean that another sick child must wait longer to be seen than was really necessary.  For this reason, we have enacted a “no-show policy”.  If you are unable to keep your child’s appointment and did not give us 24 hours notice, there is no penalty the first time.  After the first no-show, you will be charged $25 and may be denied services until that fee has been paid.  After 3 no-shows, your family may be dismissed from our practice.  These occurrences are counted per family, not per child.

We also understand that it’s not easy getting your child to appointments on time.  One of the keys to reducing wait time is recognizing when a late patient must be rescheduled.  We want to treat every family fairly, and no one should have to wait extra time because the patient before them was late.  If you are more than 15 minutes late to your child’s appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
