9/14/2020 - Well Type Visit Policy including flu vaccine and other vaccine appointments
In an effort to keep our sick and well patients separate, if you or any member of your household have had direct exposure to someone with COVID-19 or you or your child are feeling unwell, please call the office to reschedule your well visit and we will provide you with a time for a sick visit.
9/1/2020 - Mask Policy
Update on our mask policy during the COVID 19 pandemic:
The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. However, masks with one-way valves or vents allow air to be exhaled through a hole in the material, which can result in expelled respiratory droplets that can reach others. This type of mask does not prevent the person wearing the mask from transmitting COVID-19 to others. Therefore, CDC does not recommend using masks for source control if they have an exhalation valve or vent. At this time we are asking anyone that is coming into the office follow the CDC guideline and NOT wear a mask with a valve as it does not provide protection for others that you may come into contact with and we are working hard to keep our staff and patients safe. Thank you for understanding.
8/20/2020 Flu Vaccine Information
We are aware of the new DPH requirement regarding flu vaccines for all school aged children by December 31,2020. Crown Colony Pediatrics will be able to start giving flu vaccine in the next few weeks so please check our website and Facebook page to get the latest updates regarding availability. We do plan on having flu clinics in September and October as well as your child will be able to get the vaccine at the time of their Well Visit- as soon as it is available.
If you decide to go elsewhere to obtain the flu vaccine- -you will need to provide us with documentation (unless you go to CVS which we can get documentation directly) so that we can accurately record the information in your medical record.
8/20/2020 COVID-19 Update:
To keep everyone as safe as possible, Crown Colony Pediatrics is continuing to take the following measures. We ask that you take a moment to read this so that you are prepared when you come to the office.
Arriving for your visit:
When you arrive to the parking lot for your visit- please call the office and the front desk will check you in remotely and collect copayments/outstanding balances at that time. If you have new insurance-please be sure that you have your insurance card with you. If you don’t have your insurance card or there is a problem with your insurance you may be asked to pay for the visit and we will reimburse you when the insurance is settled. In addition- we will need to have the phone number that you can be reached at in the car.
Please remain in your car until the nurse calls you as we are not able to use our waiting room at this time. To help expedite the process- please be ready to answer your phone promptly. You should be prepared to answer questions about your travel and people that you have been exposed to in the last 14 days as well as your health and your child’s health.
If you or your child is sick with ANY of the COVID Symptoms- fever, chills,-cough, runny nose, sore throat, body aches, loss of taste or smell shortness of breath, new headache, COVID toes, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea –it is imperative that you let us know before you come into the office. PLEASE be forthright with you answers. We are trying to keep everyone as safe as possible during this time. If you are here for a Well Visit- and you have any of the symptoms- we may ask you to schedule a sick visit and reschedule the Well Visit until the patient is feeling better.
• We ask that when possible that only the patient and one healthy parent/guardian come in for the visit.
• Everyone over the age of 2 MUST have a face covering. You will not be allowed in the building or the office without the face coverings. The face covering should be on throughout your visit- even while waiting in the exam room.
• Bring your own book, toy, and mask. If you have a history of asthma-please, bring any inhalers and spacers with you that you may be using.
We are continuing to see Well Visits in the morning and Sick Visits in the afternoon. We will have a few evening appointments available for older children.
Because things are rapidly changing with regard to our approach with COVID 19 based on CDC and Department of Public Heath guidance and mandates-please stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for the most recent updates.
As always-we are always available by phone if you have any questions or concerns.
We kindly thank you for your patience,
Dr.’s Angus, Brzozowska, Corkins, Natkin, Urquhart and staff
