Message from the Practice

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:


McKnight Pediatrics continues to try to do its part in helping to contain this virus and "flatten the curve". Everything we know tells us the only way to do that is encourage our citizens to stay home, only going out for necessities. In order to comply with these recommendations, keep our families and staff safe, and provide the necessary well and sick care for our patients we have implemented the following changes as of Monday January 1st, 2021.

As we are navigating through COVID and adhering to the constant changes and requirements of social distancing we are requesting that patients do not arrive any earlier than 3 - 5 minute to their appointment. When you arrive to the garage we are asking that you complete the contactless check-in thru the healow app to let us know you have arrived. Once you have completed the check in please call the office for instructions on entering the office for your appointment.

Please be aware that we do not have a grace period and if you arrive late for your appointment you will have your appointment rescheduled and there is a $25 "missed appointment fee" that will need to be paid before the next appointment can be made.

McKnight Pediatrics monitors the changes occurring and policy recommendations being made on a daily basis. We will make changes accordingly. It is our hope that we will return to life as usual sooner rather than later. Reality and data tell us we must all take this pandemic seriously and do our part.

Please do not hesitate to call us if you have questions. Stay tuned for updates.

On a lighter note, we hope everyone is finding very creative ways to spend all of this extra time with family. One exercise for our children might be to think about, write or draw a picture about something that makes them happy. The adults might want to do the same. On my list is gratitude for all of our families who entrust the care of their children to us.

With Much Appreciation,

Marjorie B. McKnight, M. D.
