Greater Lowell Pediatrics

COVID-19 Update - 6/9/20

All of us at Greater Lowell Pediatrics remain committed to our goal of providing compassionate and comprehensive family-centered care despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 epidemic.  We want to let you know about the things we’re doing and some of the changes we’ve made to fulfill that mission in as safe and convenient a way as possible.  We know that parents are rightly concerned about exposure to the virus when they come to a medical office.  That caution is justified.  We believe that we’ve reduced the risks as much as possible by:

  • Seeing our well patients and our sick patients in physically separate areas of the office
  • Carefully screening all patients for exposure to the virus or symptoms suggestive of Covid infection and if present directing them to appropriate care outside our office setting
  • To the extent possible scheduling most of our well visits in the morning and illness visits in the afternoon
  • Allowing extended time for each visit, which avoids crowding and eliminates the need to be in our waiting room
  • Having all our staff wear masks, and when appropriate gloves, eye shields and gowns and requiring all our patients to be masked in the office
  • Diligent cleaning of rooms and equipment before and after each visit
  • Scheduling telehealth “virtual” visits whenever appropriate and/or requested
  • Scheduling checkup visits on Saturday mornings in our Westford office

Although the covid virus continues to be present in our community, we’re encouraged that the rates of infection have gone down.  We’re also concerned that at the height of the epidemic some of our patients have understandably fallen behind on routine checkups, important immunizations, or care for non-urgent problems.  We think that now is the right time to catch up on needed care, particularly since  the fall may bring a resurgence of the virus as well as all the other illness that comes with cooler weather and a return to school.  We’ll do our very best to accommodate your scheduling needs!
