Wellness Child Checks…

Complete Care for Kids encourages families to maintain regular wellness checks for their children.

4 year olds and under:

We will continue to see these patients in our office as done as previously.

5 years olds and older:

We are doing hybrid appointments (half of the visit in the car via telephone and other half in the office). Please remain in your car and call the office when you arrive for your appointment.

What we are doing in the office…

  • We are seeing most of our sick visits virtually through Telemedicine.
  • Everyone over the age of 2 years old is required to wear a face mask.
  • We ask that only one parent comes to the scheduled appointment to limit the amount of people in the office.
  • When entering the office, the patient is immediately checked in and brought back to a room.
  • Each room is deeply sanitized after every visit.
  • Our waiting room is sanitized throughout the day and at the end of the day.
  • The cleaning staff of our building has someone in the lobby wiping railings and door knobs throughout the day.
  • We have removed all toys from the waiting room and patient rooms to decrease exposure.
