Los Alamitos Pediatrics
When you visit our Los Alamitos pediatric medical office, your child's health is our top priority. Our entire pediatric team is dedicated to providing your son and/or daughter with a personalized, comprehensive care that they deserve.
Part of our commitment in serving our pediatric patients includes providing information to you as the parent to help you make more informed decisions about your child's health care needs. This website is a resource we hope you’ll find helpful.
Please browse through our website and be sure to give us a call if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
School closings, social distancing, containment zones and self-quarantines are ramping up all over the country as the Coronavirus spreads. We would like to assure you that your family’s health and safety is our highest priority. Your doctors at Los Alamitos Pediatrics and CHOC are here for you, not only for medical care, but as a source of reliable and sane information. We suggest you look at COVID-19 information from two perspectives.
1) Personal Safety: the vast majority of people infected by COVID-19 will have mild illness, especially children.
2) Community responsibility: the CDC and Health Department are trying to limit spread, or at least slow it down. Self-quarantine, containment areas and social distancing are being implemented for these purposes. Please be socially responsible to help us all try and control the outbreak.
The best way to stay healthy is by practicing good hand washing, remembering not to touch your face, and staying away from large gatherings when possible. If you or any one in your family is sick, stay home. When needed, cough into your elbow, or a tissue which is even better.
Your physicians will help you through this crisis, as we have so many times in the past. Our doctors were on the front line of H1N1 infection - we made it through that, and together, we will make it through this.
If your child is sick, please call us. Each office is handling the situation a little differently but be sure we are all screening patients carefully and doing what is needed to keep our families safe.
Keep your scheduled well care appointments. Children still need to get physicals and the vaccines that protect them from illnesses much more serious than coronavirus. All of our offices have implemented procedures to keep you safe. We are following appropriate CDC recommendations. We are updated daily from the leadership at CHOC and we follow those guidelines. We are cleaning intensely and often.
What else can you do? Shut off the news on TV and give yourself and your children a break. When possible, keep their schedules normal. Look for anxiety symptoms such as moodiness, trouble sleeping and separation anxiety. Talk to your children about their fears. Reassure them.
Check on your elderly neighbors, family and friends. These people are most at risk for complications of Coronavirus. Ask if you can get them food, medicine or anything else they need. We are a community, we need to take care of each other. *****
