To protect our patients, caregivers and our staff, the following steps have become our standard during the pandemic. Please check back often as these policies and procedures may change as things continue to improve. Please let our team know if you have any questions or concerns before coming to the office.
MASK REQUIREMENT: Although local government requirements may have changed, DVPeds still requires masks while in our facilities for children over the age of 2 and accompanying adults.
We have dedicated hours for seeing well children. Along with the AAP, we want to stress the importance of staying on track with well exams and vaccines.
If your child uses an MDI inhaler for asthma or a breathing condition, it is extremely important you bring it to every visit (sick or well) in the event your child needs an inhalation for treatment.
Do your best to leave any additional family members or siblings at home when attending an in office appointment.
We are calling a day before your appointment to screen for any sick symptoms including cough, congestion, or fevers. This will help to ensure we are properly prepared for your arrival and have your child’s appointment scheduled at an appropriate time.
While regular cleaning was a part of our normal duties, we have increased this to several times a day focusing heavily on common areas.
