Our office is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand how confusing and stressful this is for our entire community. In order to continue to provide the best care possible while maintaining safety for all of our patients, families as well as our staff, we have implemented the following policies:

  1. Same-day-sick appointments are available during time slots separate from any routine well check appointments
  2. Separate exam rooms are being used for well checks and sick appointments
  3. No walk-in appointments. Please call ahead for all visits
  4. We continue to follow local, state and federal guidelines (ie. requirement for masks)
  5. All families are screened for risks of COVID-19 (ie. recent exposure, travel, symptoms) within 24 hours of their appointment times and triaged appropriately
  6. All providers have been vaccinated for COVID-19 :)
  7. We offer telemed services. Please speak with our nurses to schedule

*Flu update: Flu shots are still available for VFC patients (those who have Caresource, Molina, or Medicaid insurance)!!!!

Dr. Yaw and any other staff seen when she isn't available have been great. They listen to my concerns and explain everything thoroughly. The front desk staff are all helpful and considerate."
