Bridgeport Resumes Well Care 7/6/20
We’re doing everything we can to protect our patients and families during this pandemic—and that includes continuing to offer well care! We encourage your child’s regular appointments, including well-child checks and immunizations.
Back in March, Metropolitan Pediatrics divided our clinics to provide separate care for well patients and patients with contagious symptoms. As we adapted to this new structure, we found unexpected wins, areas to improve, and new opportunities to offer families the best pediatric care in the safest way possible. One opportunity was Bridgeport’s ability to safely resume well care. Given Bridgeport’s layout with two separate entrances and distinct patient care areas, it was well-designed to manage both sick and well care independently.
Starting July 6, 2020, our Bridgeport office will see both well-child checks and children who don’t feel well. We are taking the utmost care with regard to precautions for your family and for our staff.
Here’s what we’re doing to keep you safe:
- We are dividing our office in two, with one side for “I feel well!” and the other side for “I don’t feel so good!” patient care
- We have separate entrances, exam rooms, and restrooms for each side
- We will continue to start most of our visits via telehealth, although for certain check-ups and conditions, we will give you the option of coming straight to our clinic for care
- We have installed plexiglass shields at the front desk for your protection, and all clinic visitors (age 2+) and employees must wear a face mask or cloth face covering AT ALL TIMES while inside Metropolitan Pediatrics
We’d love to see you at our Bridgeport clinic to help get your child caught up with their check-up and vaccines. During the COVID-19 pandemic, staying up to date on routine immunizations is more important than ever. We want to make sure your child is protected from illnesses we can prevent, growing well, and meeting developmental milestones. If there are any concerns, we can address them early and keep your child moving forward.
Staying healthy also means checking in on your child’s mental health. Our behavioral health team is available to empower children and families with positive coping tools and extra support to get through this time—and beyond.
Please don’t put off important care for your child. Metropolitan Pediatrics is here for you and prepared to safely care for your family.
Please give us a call at 503-214-2064 to set up your child’s appointment today!
Drs. Dahl, Baynham, Moore, and Malcom can’t wait to see you.
