From our Medical Director, Dr. Richard Levine:

 

In response to COVID 19 pandemic, Skagit Pediatrics has made several changes to protect our community and provide essential acute care and primary care in a safe manner. We have made changes in how we schedule and see patients in our clinic and we are encouraging our families to use virtual visits through Tele-medicine.

 

We are excited to offer Tele-medicine for Virtual Visits.  We have found this to be a great option for many types of visits.  Most often we can provide needed care and, in those cases where in-person care is needed, use of the tele-medicine visit can limit the length of time needed in the clinic.  To set up a tele-medicine visit, please call for an appointment at 360-428-2622.

 

To keep our clinic a safe space to see our patients, we are making the following changes:

 

-We are seeing only patients for well care visits from birth to 2 years that are associated with vaccines and are limiting our in person sick visits to ones that are urgent and not able to be done by tele-medicine.

 

-We are seeing our well child visits only in the morning and only sick children in the afternoon

 

-We have physically divided our clinic into a “sick side” for those with symptoms of cough and fever and a “well side” for those without those symptoms.

 

-We continue to do meticulous cleaning of rooms and clinic spaces between patient visits.

 

-We are screening all patients for symptoms before entry into the clinic and having all families wait in their car until their exam room is ready for them.

 

-We are asking all families to limit who accompanies a child to their visit to just one adult.

 

-We are asking all patients and accompanying adults  to practice hand hygiene and wear a mask while in the clinic.

 

We are currently offering limited testing for Covid 19.  This will be at the discretion of the health care provider.

 

We ask for your patience with the inconveniences these changes create.  

 

Please “stay home and stay well” and please call us with questions.
