Coronavirus Pandemic Notice
Posted 5/18/20

Our Practice Updates General Covid-19 Updates
We are open for physicals and sick visits with safeguards in place to maintain proper social distancing within the office. Telehealth visits are available also, and they are covered by the insurance companies. As usual, we are available for advice 24/7.

In accordance with New York State Executive Order 202.17 issued 4/15/2020 persons over age 2 years old who are able to wear a face mask should do so within our office space.

The office looks and operates very differently from the last time you were here.
  • We are seeing patients by appointment only.
  • We continue to have Saturday hours but not evening hours. M-Friday hours are 8-4pm.
  • To limit traffic in the office we request that only one adult accompany the child for the appointment. (Please do not bring extra children who do not have appointments.)
  • To maintain proper social distancing we have our patients using their vehicle as their own private waiting room until called to be escorted inside one at a time.
  • Well visits are scheduled in the morning and first portion of the afternoon while in-office sick visits are scheduled in the late afternoon.
  • All entrants are screened for symptoms of Covid-19. Appointments for well visits are rescheduled if a patient or household contact has had Covid-19 symptoms within 2 weeks of the appointment date.
  • We are not handling/exchanging forms nor payments within the office space.
Our goal is to keep minor illness out of the office and urgent care centers, so please call for a Telehealth Visit.

We do not have the proper Personal Protective Equipment nor transport materials to perform Coronavirus testing within our office.
The Center for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics endorse continued well visits to ensure that children stay up to date on their immunizations.

Kaleida Health has lessened its testing criteria. They are still prioritizing testing for various groups, but anyone who wants a test may contact Kaleida health. Go to www.kaleidahealth.org/coronavirus/#testing to complete the on-line screening questions. If you are accepted for a test at Kaleida, you may call us to issue an order for the test to take to your appointment.

If there is a test proven, positive Covid-19 case in your household refer to the Erie County Health Commissioner mandate (Health Alert Priority #355, 4/13/2020) for the proper quarantine procedure via this link: www.erie.gov/covid19.

We are not recommending routine antibody testing until there is more data on the accuracy of these tests.

The New York State Governor ordered that all persons going out in public wear a cloth face covering when 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained (effective 4/17/20).

Continue social distancing and good hand hygiene.

If you think your child has the Covid-19 virus s/he may be treated supportively at home. Regarding suspected Covid-19 illness, call if there is fever of 100.4 or higher longer than 72 hours or if there is any shortness of breath or trouble breathing.

Welcome to Genesee-Transit Pediatrics

Transit Office

Our highly qualified, Board-Certified pediatricians are an integrated and highly regarded team dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents. Our high academic and educational standards, as well as our years of experience and a commitment to continual education, ensure that our entire staff remains current with the newest and most significant advances in the ever-changing world of pediatric medicine.

Genesee-Transit Pediatrics was established in 1999. Previously Genesee Pediatric Associates, we were one of the first pediatric group practices to provide care to children and young adults in Western, New York.

We focus our efforts on providing the most comprehensive pediatric and adolescent care possible. As your family has grown, and their needs have changed, so have our services. Listening to our patients and their families has always been a priority. We know more than ever how important convenience has become in your selection of a pediatrician. With two locations, expanded office hours, and 24 hour “on call” services- our primary focus remains your children’s’ healthcare needs. We’re here to help you through your parenting journey. From prenatal & newborn care to adolescence, we’ve got you covered. Your child is in good hands.

Genesee-Transit Pediatrics is Committed to Providing Continuity of Care to our Patients

Continuity of Care is an important goal in providing medical care, and we are taking steps toward improving our commitment to our patients. We are encouraging everyone to designate one of our doctors as their primary care physician (PCP). Whenever possible, appointments will be made with the primary care physician, particularly for healthy checkups and follow-up visits for chronic conditions. Sick visits will still be scheduled the same day with the doctor that is available. If your PCP is working at our other office, you may be offered the opportunity to see them at that office. We believe that continuity of care will improve the quality of care that your child receives.
