Coronavirus continues to have an impact on our society and thus, our practice. This is a fluid situation and we may have to change our policies to abide federal and state guidelines.
At this time, we have both in-office and telehealth appointments available. Most follow-up appointments can be accomplished via telehealth. In certain situations, Dr. Moran may request a patient to come into the office for a physical exam. New patients are requested to have the initial appointment in the office. Your reminder text/email will state if you are scheduled for an in-office or telehealth appointment. If you feel you need a different type of appointment than what is scheduled, please call the office.
If you are scheduled to have an in-office appointment, we require that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Your scheduled time is the time that Dr. Moran will see you. In-office patients will need to check-in with the receptionist and obtain vitals and other information gathered by the medical assistant prior to your scheduled time. Please arrive 15 minutes early so that your time with Dr. Moran will not be cut short.
Your should bring your own reading materials / toys for the waiting room as per COVID recommendations these items have been removed.
New Patients are requested to have an in-office initial visit. Please arrive 15 min prior to your scheduled time. Please bring: your insurance card, your drivers license, and any school papers or other assessments that have not already been submitted.
Your scheduled appointment will be a telehealth visit. At the time of the appointment, our receptionist will call you. She will collect any copay/coinsurance due and confirm your email address. At the end of that call we will send you the link. We do not send links in advance in order to increase security.
At the current time, it appears most insurance plans will cover telehealth visits. Please check with your specific plan that they will cover the visit(usually 99215) with a 95 modifier. You will be responsible for the charges if your plan rejects telehealth visits.
The silver lining in this situation is that the doctor is able to see the child in their natural environment albeit through a camera and Zoom format. Nobody is masked and the child is able to provide their own toys and natural activities to demonstrate positive and even negative behaviors. This has been very enlightening as a provider and in some aspects we are able to get more information via this interaction then we would have in person. Frequently, children are not able to make it past the waiting area or sometimes even into the building during our first visit even without the pandemic.

All children and young adults require support from caregivers during times of stress and uncertainty, such as those we are facing now with the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
