Notice regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
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 23 our two offices will divide into prevenative care and health evaluation and management. Patients seen at either location and the caregiver accompanying them must pass health screening questions. Only one caregiver and the patient can enter our office. Each office will have providers/staff that are strictly assigned to that location.
Our West Hartford locations will be seeing preventative exams for children ages 4 and under. This office will also see healthy only rechecks/counselling type visits. The day before your visit a staff member will call and screen, you must provide a cell number that you will have with you at the time of the appointment. Arrive at the office 15 minutes prior to the visit (should anyone feel ill, please call and reschedule). Our staff will call you and meet you at the door, from there you will be directly put in an exam room
Our Windsor location will evaluate and manange any non-preventative visits, every patient/caregiver will be screened, this screening will determine whether a face to face exam will occur or a telemedicine encounter will occur.
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. Our providers are happy to speak with you regarding COVID-19 during office hours. The great news is that with our office being able to offer telehealth during this pandemic you may interact with our providers from the comfort and safetly of your own home. Please note that all telemedicine encounters are billable to your insurance per government recommendations.
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.
