INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19
To our Pedicorp families:
The care and well-being of your children is our utmost priority. During this unprecedented and challenging time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of our patients, families and staff is something we are taking very seriously. We are constantly staying up to date with the most recent, but very quickly changing guidelines, from the CDC and AAP.
We want to ensure all our families that we are here for you and your questions.
It has been encouraging that the symptoms of the coronavirus in children are relatively mild. However, we all need to be mindful that they may pass the infection to another person who maybe at higher risk for more complications.
In order to maintain a safe environment in our offices for our patients and staff, we have implemented the following temporary changes:
As of March 16th, 2020, until further notice:
- We will only see well visits in the morning and sick visits in the afternoon
- When you call for a sick visit that may be associated with a cough, fever or any respiratory symptom you will be triaged to our nurse who will call you back to discuss the best and safest course of action for your child
- Only the patient who is being seen and one healthy caregiver will be allowed for every visit
Please also be assured that we continue adhere to the CDC guidelines of properly disinfecting all areas of our offices.
At this time, we do not have the capability to test for COVID-19 in our office but we can help you determine the appropriate next steps to get tested if needed.
We truly appreciate your patience as we continue to determine how we may best care for your children. Thank you for the privilege of entrusting your kids to our care.
Allyson Duffy, MD Kimberly Kim, MD Christina Solomito, FNP-C J. Christopher Schuck, MD Susan Perks, MD Evie Iyamu-Osagie, PNP-BC

Each form is reviewed by our staff and providers. It is NOT JUST A SIGNATURE.
Our practice has a policy that has been in place since 2013. There is a $5.00* per form fee. This also includes printing out school forms. We scan them in as a courtesy but we are not required to keep them as part of the medical record.
We appreciate your understanding and advanced planning. This time of year, can be very busy. Please allow for this and plan accordingly.

All pediatric patients require a parent, legal guardian or authorized adult at
each and every visit
Our practice requires that patients under the age of 18 years be accompanied by a responsible adult who can communicate with our providers and staff all healthcare concerns. If you are sending a representative we require the following. Go to the patients information drop down and select patient forms. The very first form is you authorizing this person to represent you on the child's behalf. We also ask that person come with any pertinent health information, form of payment and questions that you have, as well a telephone number where we may reach you. This person should be able to communicate with you in regards to everything that traspired at the visit.
