Welcome to Wards Corner Pediatrics
Wards Corner Pediatrics is a pediatric practice serving the greater Hampton Roads area. With offices in both Norfolk and Chesapeake, our doctors, nurse practioners, and nurses work together to provide quality medical care for your children. Even though we have a new name, we have had many years of experience working in the pediatric field. Many of our patients have been with us since birth, and are now bringing their children to our practices!
WE ARE ALWAYS ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS AND ACCEPT ALL INSURANCES
July 15, 2020
We have not updated our policies on social media recently and wanted to make sure all of our patients were aware of the following: If you have contacted our office recently for an appointment you may have been made aware that we are currently asking for only 1 parent per family in the room with the patient. We are asking this in order to limit the amount of people our staff and providers come in contact with in order to prevent increasing the risk of exposure to our staff. There may be exceptions in extreme cases, but these are very rare and must be cleared by our office manager prior to allowing. When making an appointment you are asked a series of screening questions regarding recent illness, travel and potential exposure to COVID-19. If any of your responses are of concern, you are asked to reschedule your appointment. In accordance with the state mandate, we are requiring that masks be worn at all times while in the office for all patients and family members over the age of 10. We highly recommend that all children wear masks if able. You will be stopped upon entering the office if you are not wearing a mask and asked to do so and if you are unable, you will be asked to reschedule your childs appointment. Once you have arrived in the office, upon checking in you are asked a series of questions regarding recent illness, travel and potential exposure incase circumstances have changed since you scheduled your appointment. If any of your answers are of concern you may be asked to reschedule. Temperatures are taken upon being pulled back by the nures after the initial screening at the front desk. If a patient has an elevated temperature they are asked to reschedule their well child check. All of our well child checks are done in the mornings to prevent exposure to any sick children. Our sick appointments are strictly in the afternoons. Each room is disinfected after each patient to ensure that the next patient will not be exposed to any germs or bacteria. Masks are worn by our staff at all times. All appointments are thoroughly screened prior to scheduling. If there is a chance your child may have COVID-19 and you would like to have them tested, unfortunately we do not provide this service and would recommend having them tested at CHKD UCC or ER. If a patient does come into the office with symptoms concerning of COVID-19 we will take full PPE precautions at that time. We take the health and safety of our patients and staff very seriously. We strive to meet the needs and expectations of all of our patients the best that we can. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time. Please continue to stay safe.
