Coronavirus Update

Dear families,

In an effort to control and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we be implementing some new temporary protocols in the office.

Walk- ins will be cancelled until further notice.

Well visits and routine visits will be scheduled on a clean, safe and socially distanced schedule. Please try to come on time to help in these efforts. All patients under 3 years and caretakers will need to wear a mask while in the office. If your child develops fever prior to the appointment, please reschedule. We especially encourage our patients under 2 to continue with their routine visits and vaccinations as this is important for their health.

We have decreased the number of doctors and staff in the office to support with social distancing therefore, you may be asked to schedule with another provider.

Sick visits will be scheduled in the afternoons by appointment only. All patients under 3years (and caretakers) will need to wear a mask during their time in the office.

Our new office hours will be 9am -5pm Monday to Friday. We will continue to see sick visits on Saturday mornings as arranged with the on call doctor.

Currently, we are able to provide testing of COVID-19 PCR and antibodies in our office. The test results typically take 4-7 days and the family would need to be quarantined until results are in.

We encourage families to come to appointments with as few people as possible- preferably only 1 caretaker and leaving siblings at home whenever possible.

The doctors and nurses are available to discuss symptoms and help you decide whether the child needs to be seen. COVID-19 is viral illness and for most patients can be managed at home with supportive care. We are here to help you and your children navigate these stressful situations. Please continue to call with any concerns at (212) 529-4330.

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented event. We are committed to providing our families with a safe and healthy medical home.
Drs. Zullo, Rosello, Ferrier and Brownstein.
