COVID-19 update

Update from Glens Falls Pediatric Consultants and Pediatric Associates of Saratoga

We are excited to announce the implementation of Video Visits in our office.   If you need to be seen for an urgent care appointment, Medication Review, asthma follow up, etc you may talk to your Primary Care Doctor via video from your own home.  

We at Glens Falls Pediatric Consultants understand that the disruption in normal routine can create anxiety and confusion for your child.  If you feel additional support is needed, please call our office and schedule a video visit with your child’s provider. 

During this COVID-19 crisis, most major insurance companies have waived the co-pay for all urgent care video visits. (i.e. CDPHP, MVP, Blue Shield NENY, The Empire Plan, Emblem, GHI, Fidelis and Medicaid).  It is important to note that your deductible and co-insurance fees will likely apply.  Tricare patients are asked to call Tricare to confirm that a video visit is authorized under their personal plan.   

The video visits allow you to speak to your Primary Provider without leaving your home; however, if your doctor feels a physical assessment is necessary, they may ask you to follow up in the office.

We have implemented many precautions in our office to ensure the highest priority is taken for the safety and well-being of our patients and staff members.

When you call to schedule an in-office appointment our staff members will be screening patient and family members prior to their entry into our office.   Please know these questions are being asked for your safety and the safety of our staff members.

Hoping you and your families are safe and healthy ~ We are here if you need us!
