COVID-19 has closed our schools for the time being. However, we are confident that each passing day of social distancing brings us one more day closer to the time that we can resume some normal activities. Sending our children back to school is one of those anticipated activities. There will be no delay at ABC Pediatrics in ensuring that your child is ready for Kindergarten! Despite the current pandemic, we’ve restructured our entire office approach to patient care according to American Academy of Pediatrics’ guidelines to ensure your child’s appointment is conducted SAFELY. Our goal is to keep your child on target for this important milestone so there are no issues for his/her enrollment when our schools reopen. We have the necessary immunizations available and the appropriate state forms on file as well.
