Happy Holidays! (And Holiday Challenges)

Dear Sound Beach Pediatrics Families,

All of us at Sound Beach Pediatrics wish you Happy Holidays and hope that the coming days are a special time for your family.

It goes without saying that the challenges of the COVID19 pandemic seem to be more present and palpable. We are seeing increasing difficulties with COVID19 testing (and result turn around) and with vaccination appointment availability. This is widespread and related to both both staffing and supply chain issues. We appreciate your patience as we try to manage these variables and forces that are out of our control.

Please see our updated SBP website, with enhanced resources related to COVID19 testing and vaccine clinics. We look forward to carrying the COVID19 vaccine in our office soon and will keep you informed!

We continue to take COVID19 precautions in our office very seriously. For everyone’s safety, Dr. Henry and I would ask that you please…

  • Complete your COVID19 screening questionnaire before your appointment through Phreesia’s Digital Check-In.
  • Let us know if you or your child is in isolation or quarantine due to COVID19. We will make a telemedicine appointment visit first if you need guidance.
  • One parent or caretaker per child.
  • Ensure your child is healthy for a well visit (without known COVID19 exposures). If your child is sick, we are happy to rebook your well visit, and to see your child for a sick visit instead if needed.
Wishing you the very best and know we are here to help if you need us!
