To Our Valued Families,
In an effort to control the spread of illness and protect our community, we will be implementing a different checking in for appointments.
For ALL visits, upon arrival in the parking lot, please remain in your vehicle and alert us by phone at (808) 871 7116 that you are outside of the office. We will then call you back and have you enter the building when an examining room is available. Please be patient as our staff will be asking you some additional questions.
In an effort to prevent congestion in our office, only one adult will be allowed with each child.
Please wear a face mask (this includes children more than 2 years of age) as recommended by the CDC. Read more here:
If you have recently traveled out of Maui, please take into consideration the mandated 14-day quarantine. You can read more about it here: https://hidot.hawaii.gov/blog/2020/03/21/governor-ige-orders-mandatory-14-day-quarantine-for-all-individuals-arriving-or-returning-to-the-state-of-hawai%ca%bbi/
We now have a designated room for sick visits only. Well visits will only be seen in “well rooms” .
We ask that you call us in advance if you or your child is sick for his or her well visit so that we can reschedule your appointment if needed.
We would like to remind you that we do not accept “walk ins”. Please call to schedule any appointment.
Our texting system is an excellent resource to ask non - urgent questions and for sending forms and school notes, so that you do not have to come in person. Please call the office if you have not set up an account. Also please look at our office website for useful information about Covid-19 and other pediatric health conditions (www.frankbaummd.com)
We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves and will keep you informed of future updates.
Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your cooperation while we continue to maintain our high standards for a safe and healthy environment for our families and our staff.
