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.

Currently, we are seeing all patients for well child care visits and encouraging families to keep up with their children's scheduled immunizations.

We have made changes in how we schedule and see patients in our clinic as well as offering virtual visits through Tele-medicine.

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

  • We have physically divided our clinic into a “sick side” for those with symptoms of COVID 19, including 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 requiring all patients and accompanying adults to wear a mask and practice careful hand hygiene while in the clinic.

  • We are installing air purifiers to each of the exam rooms and are updating the air purification system for the entire building

  • 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 currently offering testing for COVID-19 .

  • This will be at the discretion of the health care provider.

We are excited to offer Telemedicine 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.

We ask for your patience with the inconveniences these changes create. We encourage our families to continue maintaining social distance and always wear a mask when in public.

Stay well and please call us with questions.

Meet Our Pediatricians

  • Richard S. Levine,
    M.D.

    I was born in Denver, Colorado. I am the fourth of five children. When I was two years old, my family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where I spent my childhood and high school years. I spent my college years at Stanford University and attended medical school at UCLA. I did my internship and residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, where I completed a year as the Chief Resident in Pediatrics. My wife, Tracey, and I have two children, Jeffrey and Hannah. We’ve lived in Mount Vernon since 1995. My interests include spending time with my family, peanut butter and chocolate.

  • Andrea B. Lowe,
    M.D., Ph.D

    I was born in Hope, British Columbia where my father was doing research at the time. We moved a lot when I was very young. I basically grew up in Manhattan, Kansas (1st – 12th grade). My family returned to the Cascades every summer until I was eight, thus instilling in me a love for this area. I went to undergraduate school at UC Davis and spent my junior year abroad in Marseille, France. After college I joined the Peace Corps. I worked in inland agriculture in Liberia, West Africa for 2 years. It was there I became interested in medicine. I worked in Liberia an additional year as a lab technician doing medical research. I then transferred to the New York office where I worked another 2 years and applied to medical school. I got my MD PhD at the University of Alabama in Birmingham and then did my residency in pediatrics in Seattle, Washington. My interests include hiking, biking, running, ultimate Frisbee, painting, assemblage sculpturing and gardening.

  • Carmela Carrasco,
    MD

    I was born and raised in New Mexico, where my parents still live. I grew up in a big family and I am the fourth of six children. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of New Mexico. During that time I explored careers in Biology research and Anthropology, but fell in love with medicine. After completing medical school, also at the University of New Mexico, I moved to Washington and finished my Pediatrics training at Seattle Children's Hospital.

    While, I am a native desert dweller the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has won my heart. I love being outdoors, hiking, biking, or just walking through a nice park. Reading and baking are a few other activities I enjoy in my free time.

    I am looking forward to getting to know the families and children of the Skagit Valley and becoming a part of this community.

  • Erika Lund,
    MD

    I was born and raised in Tumwater, WA and moved across the state to Pullman for my undergraduate studies at WSU (Go Cougs!). After finishing my degree, I moved to the east coast where I attended New York Medical College and received my MD. I was so excited to move back to Washington where I completed my Pediatric Residency at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

    After growing up playing various sports (soccer, basketball, softball, rugby) I am a Seattle sports fan through and through, trying to catch as many M’s, Seahawks and Sounders games as possible. While I’m in the office I love working with young athletes to keep them as safe, healthy, and active as possible. I can’t wait to learn more about this community and get to know the wonderful families in the Skagit Valley.
