COVID-19 UPDATE


Corona Virus COVID-19 Resources for Parents

My Kid’s Pediatrics and Adolescent Care is working diligently to provide the best care for your children while minimizing COVID-19 risk to patients, parents and our staff. We are making the following changes to maximize your safety and minimize your risk of exposure:

  1. Direct-to-Room check-in: When you arrive at the parking lot of our office, please call us at 703-865-5437 and our front office staff will check you in over the phone. They will call you when your room is ready and direct you to come into the office.
  2. Telemedicine visit: In an effort to decrease exposure for patients, families, and staff, we are now offering Telemedicine visits via doxy.me. Please note, not all visits are amenable to telemedicine visits and may require in-office care. Well child visits and non-urgent routine visits will take place in the office, and for sick visits depending on your child’s complaint we may have to schedule an in-office care if they require testing (ex. Flu, RSV, Strep and Urinalysis) or an in-person physical exam (ear infection, pneumonia, and wheezing).
    Telemedicine is billed the same way as an in-office visit. You will be responsible for your co-pays, deductibles and coinsurance. Please call our office to see if your child’s complaint is appropriate for telemedicine.
  3. We will be separating our sick visits from our well visits and non-urgent routine visits.
    If you have an upcoming well visit scheduled, we might have to reschedule to a different date or time as we are staggering well visit to minimize exposure. American Academy of Pediatrics continues to recommend all preventative care visits under 2 due to immunizations and development screening.
  4. One parent per child: We are requesting families to limit the number of caregivers bringing the child to the office: one parent and a child. No siblings allowed unless they also have scheduled appointments at the same time. Do not send your child to the appointment with a caregiver older than 60 years of age. This is to minimize exposure to the most vulnerable population.
  5. PLEASE DO NOT COME IN PERSON TO OUR OFFICE WITHOUT CALLING!
