Cardinal Pediatrics Action Plan
In keeping up with all CDC protocols and to ensure patient safety, we are offering a new service: Drive-Thru Pediatrics! Because we are unable to do any 'aerosol' producing action in clinic (i.e. strep/flu/RSV tests or nebulizer treatments), Drive-Thru Pediatrics will allow us to provide the same level of care that you are used to, but the convenience (and safety!) of staying in your car. Our nurses, nurse practitioners and/or doctors will actually come out into the parking lot for the visit. We will take your child's vitals, run any necessary tests and give you plenty of time to speak with your doctor or nurse practitioner. We want to ensure you are getting the best in pediatric care!
Each clinic is starting it at different times, so please see your clinic page for full details. We are also putting together a You Tube channel so your child can know what to expect when they see their doctor or nurse practitioner in full PPE. It can be scary! Please tell them their doctor is in costume and they can be too!! Make it fun :)
Now we are starting to see acute patients in clinic, but we still ask that you call to schedule and then we will determine the best course of action based on your child's symptoms. We are still not allowing any walkin appointments.
Remember ~ telemedicine is still available for those who prefer not to be seen in clinic. Please call your insurance to see what is the best option for your family, as many insurances will begin to restrict using telemedicine.
