We continue to be open Monday through Saturday.

This week we are implementing Telehealth visits for both Well Child and Sick visits. Speak to our receptionists to book these visits.

Many insurance companies are waiving co-pays and patient responsibility for telehealth visits.

Telemedicine Reimbursement

We are working to organize all payer information about telemedicine.  But in the interim, we can direct you to links for the following payers:

  • Excellus: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits for any reason
  • MVP: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits for any reason
  • Cigna: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits related to COVID-19
  • United Health Care: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits related to COVID
  • Aetna Medicare: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits for any reason
  • Aetna Commercial: cost sharing waived for telemedicine visits for any reason

For parents of Newborns through 2 year olds: it is important to be seen for the Well child visits in the office. The AAP and Monroe County Medical Society guidance is to get the kids in before any increase in local Coronavirus expansion.

Sick visits continue to be seen in the office, depending on the situation. We are using our side entrance, back hallway rooms, and separate hours for these visits.

Per the NYS DOH, we conintue to take Coronavirus precautions for our patients and staff.

Please let your kids know we will be wearing masks, goggles, and gowns.

Thank you for your patience!
