SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus that is causing the disease known as COVID-19

As of this writing, there are many cases of the 2019 novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in the Richmond area. 

We have developed Telemedicine Visits and they are currently active.

If you and your child have any symptoms that may be associated with Covid-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, vomiting, loss of smell or taste, etc.), please let us know before you enter our office. We have procedures in place to minimize potential transmission of this virus. We have limited testing capabilities in our office - both a rapid antigen Covid test as well as a send-out PCR test. We will determine which test is the most appropriate when you come to the office.
