Welcome to Our Practice
Info Regarding COVID-19
In accordance with the recommendations outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to promote well care visits and vaccine administration. In order to protect our healthy patients, we will be completing well check-ups in our downstairs office, Suite 102. We will see all same day and sick visits in our upstairs office, Suite 260. Everyone will continue to check-in on the first floor, Suite 102. This separation of patients will assure parents we are taking all precautions necessary to allow for our tiny, vulnerable patients and other well patients to stay healthy. We are also scheduling our shot only patients to avoid any possibility of over-crowding in our downstairs office. These visits will be scheduled between the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Please contact our office to schedule a shot only appointment that is convenient for you. If you or your child have fever or respiratory symptoms and the child is scheduled for a well visit, we ask you to call and reschedule. Please call the office with any questions.
Telehealth is now available!
Pediatrics of Lima is excited to announce we now offer Telehealth visits for certain appointments. The video conference will be provided through our secure electronic medical records system. Some visits that may be appropriate for Telehealth conference include ADHD rechecks, anxiety/depression rechecks, rashes, pinkeye, vomiting/diarrhea, head lice, or sinus infections. Complaints like sore throat, ear pain, and bronchitis/pneumonia will likely still need an in-person visit due to the importance of the physical exam. At this time, we cannot offer wellness visits through Telehealth because they also require an in-person exam. Please call the office for more information and to find out if a Telehealth visit might be an option for your child.
