What we are doing to protect you!

We know that this is a scary and confusing time and that COVID-19 is weighing heavily on everyone’s minds.  We want to assure you that your safety is our primary concern.  Therefore, we have put in place the following measures to protect you and your family.


  1. We pre-screen all patients for COVID-19 risk factors by phone prior to scheduling an appointment.  If you or someone in your home has risk factors for COVID-19, do not come to our office.  Please self-quarantine and stay at home.  Call our office and we will help you determine the right course of action for your family.
  2. Well child and non-sick visits will be scheduled in the morning.  Sick visits will be scheduled in the afternoon.
  3. Our exam rooms are always completely cleaned and sanitized between each patient.  Waiting areas and bathrooms are cleaned and sanitized twice a day, before the morning appointments and again before the afternoon appointments.
  4. We may ask that you remain in your vehicle and call us when you arrive for you appointment.    This allows us to ensure that we can adhere to the social distance requirement within our office.
  5. We ask that only one person accompany the patient to the appointment.  We will check the temperature of all persons (including family members) entering the office for the appointment.
  6. Telemedicine (video calling) is available for SOME appointments.  Our office staff will determine if Telemedicine is appropriate for your visit.
  7. Our doctors and staff adhere to strict guidelines regarding hand washing and sanitizing before and after patient contact.  We have handwashing stations and alcohol-based hand sanitizer available for our patients and their families to use while in the office.
  8. Our doctors and staff may enter your exam room wearing personal protective equipment, like masks, gloves and gowns.  This is necessary to protect your health and ours.  The protective gear can be a little scary to young children. We recommend that you talk to them about it before your appointment, so they will know what to expect when you arrive.


Please check the CDC, Texas Department of State Health Services and local health department websites for the most accurate information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).


Thank you so much for doing your part to help stop the spread of COVID-19!

Dr. Petropoulos and staff
