Medical Center Pediatrics joins the American Academy of Pediatrics in condemning racism in all forms. We are deeply concerned about the effects of racism on children.
As pediatricians dedicated to the health and wellbeing of ALL children, we are worried and invite you to work with us to change the conversation and the culture of systemic racism. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently published a press release that Condemns Racism and Offers Advice for Families on How to talk to their Children.
The experts at Child Mind Institute remind us "Research shows that even very young children are aware of racial differences and children can learn harmful lessons about race when it's not discussed openly." By ages 2-4, children can internalize racial bias. Be part of the solution and teach tolerance, acceptance and love for ALL people, it's never too early. If you are white, acknowledge your own privilege and help your children understand that those who are not, do not have the same chances and are not treated equally in our society simply because of their race.
If you are looking for some good books to begin or continue the conversation with your children, we encourage you to check out these resources to explore age-appropriate written works that support conversations on race, racism and resistance.
We applaud and endorse the efforts of organizations such as Embrace Race whose mission is powerful: "Let’s Raise a Generation of Children Who Are Thoughtful, Informed, and Brave About Race."
SCHEDULE YOUR WELL CHILD CHECK UPS AND SPORTS PHYSICALS NOW
If you haven't done so already, please call to schedule your child's yearly physical exam. Most school athletic programs require that these exams be done on or after April 15th for your child to participate in Spring and Fall sports.
- Visits need to be scheduled with our front desk.
- We provide visits for acute illnesses or chronic conditions for which we feel it is safe to provide care using virtual technology. These include Colds, Pink Eye, Rashes, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Constipation, Minor Injuries, Breastfeeding Concerns, ADD/ADHD, Behavioral Issues, Anxiety, Depression
- During the COVID-19 pandemic, we may suggest connecting with you virtually so we can determine the most appropriate place for you to receive in person care.
Ask your insurance if your plan covers virtual visits. If the visit is not a covered benefit by your insurance, then the visit charge will be passed onto you for payment. With the COVID-19 Pandemic most insurance companies have covered these visits so that you have a safe way to receive care.
Beginning April 24, 2020, we will be charging your insurance for doctor calls exceeding 5 minutes per day or nurse-only calls exceeding 15 minutes. Brief calls taking less than these thresholds will remain complimentary. Whether you have a cost share is determined by your insurance plan and policy. If you have questions about our policy, please contact our office at [email protected]mcphealthykids.com
