Pedios Families:

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we at Pedios want to assure you that we are helping prevent the spread of the virus, while providing care for our patients and trying to keep our patients and office staff protected.

First, we will be seeing well babies and children for the first few hours of the day, followed by sick children later in the afternoon. Expect a call for rescheduling if you have an afternoon well appointment currently scheduled. If you happen to be sick and have a morning check-up scheduled, please call to have your appointment moved to afternoon. Additionally, we have removed all toys from our play area and will be doing frequent cleaning of the waiting area as well as our usual cleaning of rooms between each visit. If you prefer to wait in your car before your appointment, that is also an option. Please call us when you arrive.

It is important to be aware that we do not do testing at our office for COVID-19. We do not have the necessary protective equipment or rooms for testing. If you suspect your child or a family member may have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you call the Illinois Department of Health on their COVID Hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or the Oak Park Health Department. You may also send an email to [email protected] with questions about testing. Please do not come in to the office with known exposure. 

If your child has a fever and cough and there is no known exposure to COVID-19 or travel to a high risk area or exposure to a person from a high risk area, please call the office to schedule an appointment as needed. Please call if you are at all concerned about dehydration or trouble breathing. In addition, please call our office if your child has other common symptoms like fever with sore throat or ear pain. We continue to see children in our community with influenza, as well as other common illnesses like ear infections and strep throat. It is important that these patients be seen and treated in a timely fashion.

We want to remind you to practice measures that help prevent the spread of COVID-19 including good hand washing and "social distancing". Avoid activities involving larger groups.

Please check our website or Facebook page regularly for updates given the quickly changing situation with this pandemic. The CDC and Lurie Children's are also good sources of information. Thank you for your help as we navigate these changes.
