Covid 19 or Coronavirus is spread by respiratory droplets from an infected person coughing or sneezing. Since our waiting room can bring together well and sick children in close proximity, we are attempting to reduce your risk of exposure in our office by limiting your exposure to other patients. Starting immediately, we are asking all patients to wait in their cars until their exam room is available. With the exception of young children and infants, we are also requiring everyone to wear masks in the office. We recommend leaving family members at home if they are not being seen. The following will be our protocol. Please be patient as we navigate this new workflow. We do this in the best interest of everyone's health.
1. Please call our office to check in.
2. We will ask to verify your insurance and collect your copay.
3. We will next ask for your cell phone number to call you when your exam room is ready.
4. When we call you to come upstairs, proceed to the front desk where our nurse or medical assistant will direct you to the appropriate exam room.
COVID 19 is the novel coronavirus that has spread to virtually every part of the world. Although there are other coronaviruses, COVID 19 is new and has never been a strain that humans were exposed to. It is infectious to everyone.
It causes fever, cough, shortness of breath, and loss of taste or smell. Many people exhibit mild symptoms. Much of this is based on the person’s age. Thankfully in children, COVID 19 causes none to mild symptoms with very few needing hospitalization. Young adults also have mild illness with very low mortality rates. On the other hand, person older than 60 have more serious symptoms and experience higher mortality.
Coronavirus is spread by respiratory droplet. You can reduce spread by good (20 second) handwashing or using alcohol based hand sanitizers. You should also avoid large gathering and practice social distancing. Social distancing is restricting or limiting large groups of people from coming close together to stop or slow the spread of infectious disease. Please stay home if you are sick! You especially want to limit exposure to anyone who is high risk, including older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions.
Please call the office if you suspect your child may have coronavirus or if they have been exposed to someone with coronavirus. One of our providers will do a telemedicine visit to direct you to when and where to get appropriate testing. Please do not come into the office.
There is currently no outpatient treatment for coronavirus in children. As with all viruses, it needs to run its course. Antibiotics do not help.
In efforts to keep coronavirus out of our office, you be asked screening questions prior to your appointment regarding your child's exposures and symptoms. As noted above, our check in process will take place in your car to eliminate exposures in our waiting room. Our staff will be wearing protective equipment with all visits. We are offering telemedicine appointments to further eliminate potential sick exposures indoor. These visits will be suitable for some problems like ADD/ADHD follow ups, concussion evaluations, and rashes.
PLEASE NOTIFY OUR STAFF IF YOUR FAMILY HAS RECENTLY BEEN EXPOSED OR HAS SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS.
PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD HAS SYMPTOMS CONSISTENT WITH CORONAVIRUS.

We offer same day sick appointments for many acute symptoms such as ear infections, strep throat, flu, colds, and other illnesses.
You can rely on us to treat all of your chronic care needs such as asthma, ADD / ADHD, school difficulties, and others. Appointments for chronic conditions can be made 3 months in advance.
Come for a visit before the baby arrives and our office manager will introduce you to the office and the providers. These visits are scheduled Monday through Thursday and are available on certain evenings.
Newborns are initially seen within 2 days of discharge to check their weight. They are seen at one week for their first physical. Once your infant has regained their birth weight, we will see them at 1 month for their second physical. If your infant has not regained their birth weight, we will continue to see them until they reach that goal. This second weight check visit is especially important for first time breast feeding infants in whom quantifying adequate intake is difficult.
Please remember to add your newborn to your insurance policy as soon as possible.
Infants and toddler are seen every 2-3 months to assess their growth and development. These visits are a chance to ask questions regarding your child's health and discuss what to expect to come. In addition to getting vaccines, children will have photoscreening of eyes for amblyopia and fluoride application of teeth to prevent cavities.
All children 2 and older are seen EVERY YEAR. Yearly physicals are important to detect any abnormalities and ensure your child is growing well. In addition, hearing and vision screens are done at the 5 year physical to assess for issues prior to kindergarten. Adolescents will be screened for depression starting at 11 years old.
PIAA forms must be dated after June 1 of the participation year. Please schedule your child’s appointment early to ensure that they do not miss practice. If your child has sustained a recent injury or concussion, please bring a letter from their specialist clearing them of the injury. If a specialist clearance letter is not available, your child may have limited clearance. Sports physicals are subjected to a $50 fee if not done with the annual physical.
Driver’s license physicals are needed if your child had their last physical greater than 6 months from their 16th birthday. It is subjected to a $50 fee. If your child is being seen for their physical, the form is completed free of charge. Forms must be signed in front of the provider and a vision screen is required. Please bring the form AND your child (with their glasses). Since form completion requires face time with a provider, a $20 charge will be assessed.
We always reserve time everyday for sick visits. Please call in the morning for the best availability.
We do not accept walk-ins.
Saturdays are for sick visits only.
Please call by 10AM to be seen.
Red Lion Pediatrics follows the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC. We have some patients who prefer to receive 2 shots at a time, but all patients are required to vaccinate on schedule. Please understand that we have patients who may be immunocompromised who cannot be immunized. To ensure their health and the health of newborns, we will not accept patients who refuse mandatory immunizations. Vaccines are safe and effective at keeping children healthy. If there is a difference of opinion, our practice is not a good fit for your family. Patients behind on shots who transfer to our practice are expected to catch up according the AAP and CDC guidelines.
For more information on vaccines and safety, please check out AAP or CDC websites. Also CHOP Vaccine Education Center has excellent information on this topic.
Please call us for an appointment.
