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 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 are seeing all patients for well care visits and encourage families to keep up with their child's immunizations 

  

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

 

-We are currently offering 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.  

 

-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

 

-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.
