Thank you for choosing Mundelein Pediatrics, S.C. It is a privilege to care for you and to provide you and your family with the quality service you deserve. Our office takes the safety of our patients and our employees very seriously. Therefore, we are taking the following precautions to reduce the risk of spreading illness.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) we are temporarily changing our practice to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. We will be doing all sick visits as Telemedicine visits with a provider instead of in person until further notice. Just like any other visit we will be prescribing medication when needed per the doctor and will be billing your insurance for the visit.

We will continue to provide well visits in-office. We are now expanding to include all age groups. It is important for those who need to get vaccinations, to be able to do so. Please call our office for an appointment. On our website, please go to our Policies and Forms section and print, complete and bring all appropriate forms to the appointment.

We adhere to a strict COVID-19 screening protocol prior to scheduling well visits in the office. We ask a series of questions regarding symptoms, recent travel, etc. If the answer to any of the questions is yes, we ask that the appointment be rescheduled for at least two (2) weeks from the present date.

We are taking temperatures on all patients, parents/guardians, and visitors over the age of two (2). We require everyone over the age of two (2) to be wearing a face-covering before and during the visit. In order to maintain social distancing, we have limited visitors to one (1) parent/guardian to accompany each patient.

For your Telemedicine visit we have the options of Phone Consultation, Facetime (for iphone) Duo (for android) and Telemedicine through the Patient Portal. If you are web enabled we encourage you to use the Telemedicine option as it is the safest form of communication.

Please call the office before going to the Emergency Department. We will help determine if you need to be seen at an ER and where is the best place to go to get the care you need. After hours an MD is on call 24/7 to be reached via the office phone number.

Mundelein Pediatrics will continue to follow the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Illinois Public Health Department's recommendations as things continue to progress. If you have any questions regarding possible exposures to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) please feel free to contact the Coronavirus Hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or you can find more information on the web at www.cdc.gov.

We greatly appreciate your assistance and understanding as we learn more about the Coronavirus.

Thank you! The doctors and staff at Mundelein Pediatrics, S.C.

You may check directly with your insurance plan if you have any specific coverage or benefits questions.
