Well Visits During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports the continuation of regular well child care visits during the coronavirus pandemic while considering the risk of exposure to other children and adults with a potentially contagious disease.  Immunizing the youngest children is top priority in well child care.  Cinco West Pediatrics will schedule well care visits away from sick patients while minimizing sick visits with telemedicine.  We will also continue to have separate entryways for well children and dedicate specific rooms and waiting areas for them.  Read more on the AAP website regarding their clinical guidance on this topic.
