COVID-19

We are working hard to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff by segregating sick from well children. In our Woodinville office, well visits will be seen primarily in Suite 102, and sick visits in Suite 205. We will have signs at the front door of Suite 102 indicating which doctors are in Suite 205 that day. In Mill Creek we will be scheduling well visits and other patients where COVID-19 is not a concern.

We ask you to:

  • Wear a mask and keep it on for the entire visit. If your child is having difficulty wearing a mask, see here for advice.
  • Please utilize hand-sanitizers in our office

Our staff will:

  • Take the temperature of all who enter the office.
  • Anyone that presents for a well visit with a fever and/or symptoms of COVID19 will be asked to reschedule.
  • Wear masks at all times
  • Wash /sanitize hands frequently
  • Sanitize surfaces and equipment frequently

Symptoms:

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19. We are currently triaging patients with fever and possible COVID-19 symptoms over the phone. If your child has possible symptoms of COVID19 and you believe he or she may need testing, please call our office. Our nurses will review your child’s symptoms and help determine if drive through testing is appropriate or if an in-person evaluation is warranted. There are several locations locally where you can get a COVID19 test. Currently, our patients are most frequently utilizing the City of Seattle COVID19 testing sites (Aurora or SODO) and Seattle Children’s.
