There is a lot of fear and questions regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, state and world. We at WFPG want to help our patients and families the best we can.
Symptoms of Coronavirus can be similar to other viruses – often fever, cough, etc. Luckily, kids typically have a mild illness, but they can spread it to more vulnerable people in your family and community.
Things you can do at home for your own family:
– wash your hands
– clean surfaces in your home, car, work frequently
– avoid touching your face
– avoid large group gatherings
– avoid sick people
– stay home if you are sick
– if sick, wear a mask if you do need to go out. Cover your mouth when coughing/sneezing.
– if you are sick enough that you feel like you need to come in and see us, please call ahead
– we may be able to provide guidance and help over the phone and save you a trip into the office

1. Call us with your concerns – our staff can help decide if a ‘televisit’ might be an option.
2. Things we can typically address in a televisit: rashes, pink eye, medication checks, behavioral concerns, etc.
3. Concerns that require us to listen to your child’s lungs or look in their ears will be better suited for an in-office visit.
4. You will schedule the televisit with your provider. Same copays would apply as a typical office visit, depending on your insurance. With our new Phreesia check-in process, you can often pay this on your phone as well.
5. At the visit time, the provider/MA will text or email you a link. Open the link and it opens a secure video session with your provider (think FaceTime, Skype,etc).
6. Chat with your provider, show them rashes or marks you are concerned about, get real-time advice.
Check it out! Stay home and stay healthy!
