COVID-19 Coronavirus Information
To all of our TriHealth Queen City Physicians families:
We realize that these are stressful times for everyone. We want to assure you that we are here to help continue to keep your children healthy.
While COVID-19 is on everyone's mind, there are other illnesses that children are susceptible to that can be prevented with routine immunizations. In keeping with the recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), we encourage well exam visits for infants and children of certain ages in order to stay on schedule with their immunizations.
We will proceed with well exams for newborns, children under 2 years of age, 4 year olds, 11 and 16 year olds. We will resume well exams for children of all ages as soon as the situation allows. We are following CDC and ODH guidelines to keep exposures to a minimum while patients and their families are in the office.
To avoid exposure and to comply with social distancing, we will see these children in the morning. There will be no sick children seen in the offices at this time.
Thank you for your understanding during these quickly changing times. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns you have regarding your children.
The physicians and staff of TriHealth Queen City Physicians
