COVID - 19 Info

We recognize that the current Coronavirus crisis is causing fear, anxiety and inconvenience for most families. We would like to reassure you that as the healthcare providers for your children, we are available to help navigate this health concern until it is no longer

 a threat to our community.


At this time, our offices in Bloomfield and Lake Orion will remain open with modified office hours for well visits and medication rechecks,  however, in office appointments have been decreased by 50%.   As the situation is changing hourly, we ask that you call our office

to confirm hours.  As a convenient option we are now offering Telemedicine, allowing us to provide virtual healthcare to our patients in the comfort of their homes, including Saturdays and Sundays.  


 If you, your child or a family member have traveled by plane or cruise ship in the last 2 weeks, we respectfully ask that you call and reschedule your appointment. We also understand if you would like to reschedule your appointment until Coronavirus

 is no longer a concern.


For the safety of our patients and staff please call us if your child is sick. We are not equipped with isolation rooms or COVID-19 testing kits. If your child is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 ( fever, cough, shortness of breath) and you feel they need medical attention, please call our office to speak to a medical provider. After a Telemedicine consultation we will determine what the next step is for you. Please be advised that Telemedicine consultations regarding new illnesses will be billed per Telemedicine guidelines.
