COVID-19 Resource Center for Parents

Dear Parents,

This is our central resource center for our patients' families to detail our services, policies and enhanced safety precautions surrouding COVID-19. These efforts are to help make our offices as safe as possible for our patients and our team. We continue to provide our full range of patient care as Your Child’s Medical Home. Please do not hesitate to call for any questions or concern, or for any visit needs.

We are here if you need us.

Online Curbside Check-In

As of March 2021, PHCA now offers mobile curbside check-in. Patients check-in using an emailed link and remain in their cars, then our staff will text or call to meet you at the front door and escort you directly to your exam room.

Mobile curbside check-in is being used for ALL patient visits at all locations, including evening and weekend hours.

COVID-19 Testing

PHCA offers in-office rapid testing for results while you are on-site, which will be billed to insurance. The prompt pay fee for rapid testing is $46 for self-pay patients.

We also offer PCR testing which is sent to an outside lab. Billing and payments for this service are handled by the outside lab.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Telemedicine
PHCA offers telemedicine for select visit types, where patients remain at home and connect with a provider online in a HIPAA-compliant video conference. Telemedicine is available from all PHCA offices for weekday appointments. During scheduling calls, our staff will determine if your visit needs are eligible for telemedicine, and let you know what to expect for a telemedicine appointment.

Social Distancing Request
Upcoming Office Visits

As part of social distancing needs, we are kindly requesting that visits to our office are limited to the patient being seen (and caregiver) as much as possible

We understand that child care concerns or other needs may require that siblings or other caregivers come with you to patient visits, and of course we will accommodate those needs. 

We are just asking that if it isn't necessary for your family, please do not bring additional children or adults with you for scheduled appointments.

Thank you so much for helping us manage social distancing at our facilities.
