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 offering telemedicine appointments for existing patients in order to reduce exposure to germs and pathogens. These telemedicine appointments extend to prenatal visits.
We request that only one (1) parent or guardian accompany the child who is scheduled for a well visit.
Thank you for your consideration, and stay healthy!
