PARENTS: Face masks are now optional.

Well child visit appointments can now come directly into the office and check in at the front desk. At this time we are asking all sick visit appointments to continue checking in from the parking lot.

You do not need an appointment but would still need to call from the parking lot when you arrive for this nurse visit.

No treatment is necessary. Baby oil or ointments make it worse.
