Alabama Pediatrics has always been committed to providing quality, compassionate healthcare to our patients. Due to the recent Coronavirus pandemic, we want to make our patients aware of changes to our scheduling process. While this may pose an inconvenience to some, we feel that these changes will allow us to continue to provide well-child care in a safe environment while also providing care to those with illnesses that require same-day evaluation and treatment.
Effective immediately, only well child appointments will be available between the hours of 8:00 AM-12:00 PM. All patients requiring same day sick appointments will be scheduled in the afternoons between the hours of 1:00 PM-5:00 PM. If your child is sick on the day of a well appointment, or if there is a sick sibling that also needs to be seen that day, then we ask that you call to reschedule for an afternoon appointment. We also request that you call our office to speak with one of our nurses rather than walking into our clinic without an appointment. We must screen patients by phone and cannot allow walk-in patients.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the rapidly changing recommendations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Your child’s safety and well-being is our utmost concern, and we appreciate the opportunity to take care of your child.
