Despite the pandemic, Yum Pediatrics remains committed to maintaining well visits so that we can keep immunizations up-to-date and address any concerns parents have. We are doing our best to keep the office sanitized and we are constantly updating our procedures so that we can keep our patients safe. For now we will ask that only one parent attend a visit with their child and if possible wear a mask (as we do to!) We are keeping all well visits under two years of age on schedule but if you have an older child give us a call and we can schedule them as well. We continue to have sick visits in the afternoon and try to schedule some of these as telemedicine visit when possible. We can’t wait to have a busy office again and see more of you soon, but for now stay safe and know that we are here to help!
