We are pleased to announce the arrival of a rapid, point-of-care, COVID-19 testing system. We are currently offering this test to our patients and their parents when indicated. We may also extend testing to first responders, teachers, and daycare workers. This test will be safely performed via scheduled drive-through testing beneath our porte-cochère. Results return in as quickly as 15 minutes. Please speak with our front desk for additional information.
In order to continue to provide optimal care for our patients while minimizing risk to patients, families, and staff, Hometown Pediatrics has temporarily implemented the following changes:
If your child has experienced any illness or fever within 48 hours prior to your well-visit, please call us & report this event before coming in.
We will now be doing all sick visits in the afternoon in office or via telemedicine to limit exposure.
In order to keep our patients as safe as possible, our waiting rooms are temporarily closed. When you arrive at our clinic for your scheduled appointment, remain in your vehicle & call the main office number (281-292-8980) for further instructions. You will be prompted to meet your physician’s nurse to enter our facility through one of the side hallways & will proceed directly to the exam room.
Also, in order to further limit potential exposure to both families & Hometown staff, if at all possible, please have only one parent accompany your child to his or her appointment & try to keep other children safe at home.
Every exam room is being thoroughly sanitized after every patient.
All medical staff are wearing masks at all times. Due to a state mandate, all parents and patients over the age of two must wear a mask in order to been seen. Please bring a mask for yourself and your child and please keep masks on all times, even when the physician is not in the room.
Again, for safety reasons, we strongly recommend no eating or drinking in the exam rooms at any time.
