We know the situation with SARS COVID-19 has been a difficult one for all of us. We hope you and your families are staying safe, washing hands frequently, wearing a mask, and staying healthy during these trying times. We want to ensure you that we will continue to remain open during our regular business hours to provide care for your children.
WE ARE NOW OFFERING SARS COVID-19 ANTIGEN TESTING IN OUR CLINIC.
We are so excited to be able to offer this service to our patient families, as this test is:
➔ FAST - rapid turnaroud time with results in 15 minutes
➔ COMFORTABLE - nasal swab instead of deep nasopharyngeal swab
➔ AFFORDABLE - $100 per test - cash/credit/debit only (not billable to medical insurance)
➔ CONVENIENT - ability to perform test and receive results in our office (no driving to other labs to perform test, no waiting days and days for test results, no send out tests)
➔ SAFE - administered by our pediatric-trained medical assistants in special rooms with medical grade HEPA air filtration systems to keep our staff and patients safe
➔ ACCESSIBLE - we are also offering COVID testing to immediate family or household members as an added service and convenience
We are asking families to call ahead of time at 713-861-4800 to schedule SARS COVID-19 testing, as testing is limited, and we are following a special protocol to ensure safety of our staff and patients.
IF AND WHEN POSSIBLE, WE ASK THAT ONLY ONE ADULT PER FAMILY BE PRESENT FOR OFFICE VISITS. WE ALSO ASK THAT SIBLINGS THAT ARE NOT BEING SEEN THE DAY OF YOUR VISIT STAY AT HOME. FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL INDIVIDUALS AGE 2 AND ABOVE FOR ENTRANCE INTO THE CLINIC.
This is to comply with current social distancing standards. If you have extended family present, we ask that they wait in the car or outside the office to prevent unnecessary crowding in our waiting area. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience but stress that this is for your safety.
WE ARE ALSO SEEING PATIENTS VIA TELEVISITS DURING OUR REGULAR HOURS.
Please visit our TELEMEDICINE page for more information.
