COVID-19 UPDATES

Wellness Checks Postponed
Wellness visits for patients 30 months and older are being postponed for 60 days. We will contact you to reschedule your child’s wellness appointment. All non-essential visits are being transitioned to phone or telehealth (video) visits when possible. If your child needs to be seen, we are still here to provide whatever care he or she needs.

COVID Testing
Testing is not available as a precaution or for mildly ill patients. Patients are only being considered for testing if they are hospitalized with respiratory disease. Exceptions to this may be considered in certain high-risk situations such as cancer chemotherapy, other immunosuppressive conditions or chronic disease. This is in accordance with the Ohio Department of Health recommendations due to significant shortages of testing supplies. 

Additional Services
Ask your provider about mental and behavioral health services that are available at this office.
