Coronavirus and your Children

Dear Back to Basics Families,

It's hard to believe that we are 2 months into the Covid-19 pandemic! We are staying strong at Back to Basics Pediatrics - adapting to the changes that have been made to our healthcare system.

We are providing well child visits in the office for routine immunizations and triaging all sick visits by phone. Telehealth has been a great way to stay connected to our patients out of the office! 

I am feeling optimistic that we are coming to the end of the isolation and need to look ahead to our "new norm". We will be wearing masks, social distancing, but moving on with our lives. We will still be here for your families to provide our pediatric services. 

I am still not clear on the testing being offered in my office for COVID-19. The safety of my patients and staff are my priority. Be aware that there are many unregulated tests being offered for antibody testing. I am waiting for an FDA approved test that I can purchase through my supplier. I have been approached about purchasing tests, but am skeptical about their accuracy. I want only the best for my patients! Also, by knowing that you have the antibodies to COVID-19, does not guarantee immunity to the virus. Please be aware of this! 

As usual, I am available 24/7, including weekends and evenings. Please feel free to call me with any concerns or questions!

With Love,

Dr. Christine
