Return to Well Care in Tigard Office

June 24, 2020

As counties continue to re-open, we are happy to announce that PANW will be expanding current access for well visits by re-opening our Tigard office to all visit types. We sincerely thank our patients for their understanding and flexibility with traveling to separate locations for well and sick care over the last two months. Starting Monday, June 29th, both our Portland and Tigard office will see patients for well and sick visits once again. In order to safely resume all types of care in each location, we will be offering well care and sick care are provided exclusively at different times of day. This model is one of the AAP-recommended approaches that is also being utilized by other local pediatric practices.

Maintaining access to preventative well care for all our patients is one of our top priorities as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have formally stated how vital this is to keeping children healthy, especially during a global pandemic.

For illnesses, we continue to offer and strongly encourage the use of convenient virtual telehealth visits as a first step to care. Many concerns can be addressed in a virtual visit. 

Through the summer, our business hours will be as follows:

As we fully re-open our offices, we remain vigilant about our strict infection prevention and control procedures to maintain the highest level of safety.

Our experienced and caring triage nurses continue to be available for medical advice, questions, and concerns. In the unlikely event of an ill patient in imminent distress (e.g., severe asthma flare-up requiring nebulizer treatment to avoid an emergency department visit) who we believe needs to be seen during our well care time, we have a process in place. An isolated area will be blocked off for this, with its own entry and exit, ensuring no cross-over with well patients.
