Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

To give you peace of mind during this ever-changing pandemic landscape, we want to assure you that we are looking out for the wellbeing of our patients and their families. We are committed to providing a clean, virus-free environment at our clinic and therefore, using CDC guidance and best practices, we have implemented the following policies;

  • Well check and sick appointments are being scheduled at different times of the day to separate well and sick children. Currently, well check patients are being seen during the morning clinic and sick patients are being seen during the afternoon clinic. Call (936) 634-2214 to make an appointment.
  • Patients who have been exposed to or are positive for COVID-19 will be seen via our telemedicine app. Click the telemedicine link above to learn more about our telemedicine appointments.
  • Upon entering our clinic, everyone will have their temperature taken at the door.
  • Employees and anyone entering the clinic will also be required to pass a screening questionnaire as recommended by the CDC. Those who do not pass will be asked to reschedule.
  • Our staff is required to have their temperatures taken throughout the day and wear masks when seeing patients.
  • Please maintain social distancing of 6 feet between others and pay attention to the space markers placed on the floor. Our waiting room has been restructured to allow patients to sit at the recommended distance.
  • We continue to enhance our cleaning measures with our staff working diligently to see that all surfaces and seating areas are scrubbed with alcohol and bleach throughout the day.

We hope these measures will help ease your worries about resuming care of your child at our clinic. Be well and we hope to see you soon.
