Covid-19

In the midst of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, the CDC recommends that patients with mild symptoms stay at home.  Children with fever and difficulty breathing who meet the criteria for coronavirus exposure should contact the nearest emergency center for further evaluation and testing.

Currently Northeast Pediatrics has two testing options.

  • We have a molecular test, equal in accuracy to the PCR test, in our office which gives results in 15-20 minutes. This is for patients who have symptoms that could be consistent with Covid-19. This swab can be done via the front part of the nose, the back of the throat, or the deep nasal swab which goes to the back of the throat (NP swab).
  • We also have the ability to test asymptomatic patients with an NP swab that we send out to Beaumont laboratory and typically get the result in 1-3 days.

In an attempt to limit the possible exposure of well children, Northeast Pediatrics is temporarily going to schedule WELL patient appointments throughout the day and SICK appointments in the  afternoon. We have changed the layout of the office to isolate the SICK areas from the WELL areas so please pay attention to the posted signs.

Accommodations will be made throughout the day for emergency sick visits.

Please refer to the CDC website regarding up-to-date information regarding this virus and outbreak: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html

Pre-visit instructions

All people entering the building must wear a mask/face covering for your protection and ours.  Young children (under 2 to 3 years old) who are unable to do so are exempt. The mask should cover both your mouth and nose.

We ask that only one parent/guardian come with your child. Please do not bring children who are not being seen, if possible.

Please practice social distancing while in the building.

Please call the office at 248-856-6300 when you arrive. We are checking in patients over the phone. We will assign you a room so you can skip the waiting room. A nurse/medical assistant will come to your room for check-in, weight, etc.

If anyone (parent or child) has cold/flu symptoms - including fever, cough, congestion, runny nose, vomiting, sore throat - we will ask you reschedule your appointment.
