Your children's health and well being is our top priority here at Rutherford Pediatrics. That is why we are taking the following steps during the Covid-19 pandemic:
We are currently offering telemedicine appointments for existing patients in order to reduce exposure to germs and pathogens. These telemedicine appointments extend to prenatal visits and any follow-up questions that new parents might have.
We are using our physical office space mainly for well-visits only. We ask that you do not bring sick children to the office for their own safety, but instead take advantage of our telemedicine program.
We request that only one (1) parent or guardian accompany the child who is scheduled for a well visit.
Please call us if you have concerns about your child's well visit, or if you would like more information about how to schedule a telemedicine visit.
Our office hours are 8 am to 6 pm, and we are available to answer any questions you might have.
We would also like to take this time to remind you that The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends immunizing children during the COVID pandemic.
Thank you for your consideration, and stay healthy!
