COVID-19 Policy 

At Pediatrics East, the health and safety of our families, patients, and employees is our top priority.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are asking that all of our parents and family members over two-years-old wear a protective mask while in our office. If you do not have a mask or would rather not sit in our waiting room, we will ask you to wait in your car until we call you back for your appointment.

Each of our employees will continue to observe recommended regulations to ensure the health and safety of every person that visits our offices. Thank you for your support under these unusual circumstances, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
