CURRENT INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
The following points address SOME frequently-asked questions (updated February 2021):
- All ONE Pediatrics locations have remained open throughout the pandemic with adapted procedures for added safety. We encourage our families to stay on track with well visits, vaccines, and other preventive care as also recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
- State regulations require all patients over age 2 and adult caregivers to wear a mask while inside the practice, (a bandanna or scarf is also sufficient).
- All practices offer telehealth appointments for appropriate conditions. Call us like normal to schedule the right appointment for your needs, and follow your pediatrician’s office on social media for ongoing updates.
- We do offer testing for Covid-19 with an appointment.
- If your insurance has changed and your child now has Passport or another Medicaid product and you are looking for a provider, please call our offices. We are happy to work with you to coordinate care.

A Message from Your Pediatrician:
Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our patients and their families. In an effort to empower you during these times of uncertainty, we are providing some key information.
Children are less likely to develop a severe infection from Covid-19. Even so, if you believe you or your child have been exposed, please call the office and we will provide next steps. If there is a medical emergency and you need to visit the ER due to a suspected exposure, it is important to notify the hospital of your arrival before entering the building. Please call the hospital and alert them that you are on the way.
When you should see us:
- Any fever (>100.4F) in an infant less than 2 months old
- Fever (>100.4F) for more than 5 days in patients of any age
