Community Re-opening

Dear Center for Pediatric Medicine Community,

First, CPM would like to thank all essential workers for their hard work and dedication during COVID-19. It is wonderful to see everyone coming together during such a difficult time. We also would like to acknowledge our team here at Center for Pediatric Medicine. Each staff member has been adapting to new and challenging measures; they have been working diligently to ensure each patient is safely screened and cared for. We have been proactively adjusting and training all staff to understand and follow the latest health protocols and procedures. Center for Pediatric Medicine has created several policies that will allow our patients to continue to receive the safe and essential care they need.

It is important that patients continue to schedule annual wellness visits. This will ensure all patients are staying up to date on vaccines. CPM is readily available for other office visits such as consultations for more complex issues such as ADHD, behavior, and ongoing or recurring symptoms. If your child is experiencing symptoms of a contagious disease, we are offering telemedicine visits to address those.

Listed below is the current office hours until 5/31/2020. We will be re-opening our Danbury and New Fairfield medical office back to normal office hours as of 6/1/2020 (Please see below).

Other News:

  • CPM is working with Office Practicum to implement a new and enhanced patient portal. We will notify all patients when this is available and how the new portal will improve your office experience here at CPM.
  • Our New Fairfield office has been completely renovated. CPM took advantage of our New Fairfield location being closed due to COVID-19. We spent time giving the office a much-deserved cleaning. We are excited to provide our patients with a brand-new office experience. We will continue to complete minor upgrades in our New Fairfield office through 2020.

 

Thank you very much for your patience.
