Welcome to Black Rock Pediatrics. We are dedicated to comprehensive, family focused health care for our infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

At Black Rock Pediatrics, we believe the best pediatric care is based on a friendly and mutual understanding between the physician and the parent, and between the physician and the child. We care for patients from birth through after college.

Coronavirus Update and Information for Patients

Hello everyone. We at Black Rock Pediatrics are carefully monitoring the situation concerning Coronavirus- COVID-19. We encourage you to regularly follow the CDC website for information updates and recommendations available at https://www.cdc.gov.

Below please see a summary of current recommendations, per the CDC:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home from work or school when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC's recommendations for using a facemask. CDC is not recommending facemask use for people who are well and asymptomatic.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for a least 20 seconds- especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Regarding office policy for sick visits:

  • There is currently no in-office testing available for Corona virus, so we cannot test for the illness at our office.
  • If a patient has any cough, cold symptoms, and fever, we will be able to assess at the office and can test for flu, but we cannot diagnose Corona virus at the office. If a patient comes in to the office with these symptoms, please expect that he/she will be given a mask.
  • If a patient has congestion, runny nose, and/or cough with NO fever and NO distress or problems breathing, the recommendations would be to stay home from work and/or school, avoid contact with elderly or at risk people, and follow up with us if any new fever or respiratory distress develops.
  • Sore throats , ear pain, and other symptoms will be seen and assessed as usual.

Thank you from,

All of us at Black Rock Pediatrics
