COVID-19 has changed the face of our world. At Corvallis Clinic Pediatrics, we continue to care about the health of your children. This is why we continue to offer comprehensive well and sick care. There are many reasons why we perform wellness checks – monitoring growth and development, administering lifesaving vaccines, checking blood pressure, and monitoring for signs of anxiety or depression. These are some of the questions we answer, as well as other topics we cover during these visits. In addition, there are still many illnesses and ailments that impact children besides COVID-19. For these reasons, we have:
- Separated well visits from sick visits during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are seeing all of our healthy children in the morning and sick children in the afternoon.
- Dedicated exam rooms where we see sick children. We clean each room between patients, but to be extra cautious, well children are not being seen in rooms where we have had sick children the day before.
- Virtual video appointments to see patients in their own homes if the reason for the visit allows.
