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.
When you arrive:
1. To minimize the number of visitors to our office, we ask that every patient be accompanied by only one family member if possible. Please contact the office for special circumstances.
2. When you arrive, please WAIT IN YOUR VEHICLE.
1. Well Appointments: Please park in the normal parking lot in the front of the building. You should receive a text message the evening before your appointment with a link to OneMD.
2. Sick Appointments: Please follow the PAL Curbside Signs to the back parking lot and pull in a numbered space. Please scan the QR code to begin the check in process (you will be directed to OneMD)
3. Next, you will receive a phone call to collect any copays.
4. Our staff will contact you when your room is available.
