To our Pediatricenter families: In order to protect your families, we have now generally shifted to the following schedule: For the first half of each day, we will see our patients who are not sick, such as check-ups, injuries, and medication follow-ups. This way, your risk of exposure to illness is minimized. For the second half of each day, we will see our patients who are sick, reducing your need to take a chance on going to the ER.
For your safety, Pediatricenter has now shifted to a process of calling the office when you arrive in the parking lot of your designated office. Our front desk staff will go through the check in process with you and let you know you can enter the office. As situations allow, we are asking that there be only one caregiver with your child at the appointment time. We are now asking parents and patients over the age of 2 to wear a mask or other facial covering when coming into Pediatricenter. If you don’t already have one, below is a link of how to make a homemade mask: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
Our doctors are now able to perform virtual visits for your convenience and safety. This will be an option for appointments which would not need an in-office examination; examples include medication checks, seasonal allergies, pink eye, rashes, among others. When scheduling for a same day sick appointment, please ask if this would be a possibility. The website is doxy.me, and our front desk staff will let you know how to get connected with your doctor at your visit time.
Please note if you or someone you know does not have reliable Wi-Fi, every Cuyahoga County Public Library does have Wi-Fi available, even in their parking lots, as the libraries themselves are closed.
