CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

At Pediatric Associates of Lawrenceville, the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community are a top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are committed to being responsive to the needs of our families as the situation evolves.

We have taken measures always to maintain a clean office, but considering the current state, we are increasing the frequency of sanitizing surfaces such as doorknobs, counters, and chairs. In addition, our nightly cleaning staff is taking extra precautions. As always, our staff washes their hands frequently, including before and after each visit.

 

Effective Thursday March 26, 2020, we are adjusting our schedule so that well child checks and other appointments are separated. We also will be offering Telemedicine visits where medically appropriate. Click here to learn more.

If you have any questions, please call our nurse advice line at: (770) 277 - 6725.
