Coronavirus Pandemic Notice
Posted 2/3/2021

Our Practice Updates General Covid-19 Information
The Coronavirus Pandemic safety protocols remain in place.

All persons 2 years and up who enter the office must wear a face mask that covers both the mouth AND the nose.

To maintain proper social distancing within the office, we continue to call you in from your car and to escort you out one family at a time.

Therefore, entering and exiting transitions take longer. Please be patient with us as we do our best to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Only one adult may accompany the patient(s) for the appointment(s) to limit in office capacity.

We continue to separate, by session, appointments for well/non-sick patients from appointments for sick/contagions concerns.

All entrants are screened for Covid-19 symptoms and exposure. (All non-urgent appointments are rescheduled if there is a positive screen.)

Our pandemic hours are the still Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and we continue to have Saturday hours 8am-12pm.

As usual, we are available for advice 24/7.

Telehealth visits are still available.

The office is not handling cash payments within the office space.

We are not doing in-office testing for Covid-19.

We are not yet offering Coronavirus vaccines.

**We are following the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines (12/2020) to conduct in office cardiac screening for all children 5 years and older in order to determine clearance to resume exercise/gym/sports.


Continue to mask, social distance, and wash your hands frequently.

Avoid unnecessary gatherings with persons with whom you do not live.

Do not send your child to daycare, camp, nor school with any symptoms of Covid-19 nor if he has had close contact with someone who has or is under investigation for Covid-19.

Refer to the Erie County Dept. of Health website for a list of Covid testing locations.

If you get tested, isolate as if you are positive and quarantine your family until the results are reported as normal.

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) for the proper quarantine procedure via this link: www.erie.gov/covid19. Note the quarantine time has been shortened from 14 to 10 days.

If you think your child has the Covid-19 virus 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 shortness of breath, trouble breathing, difficulty keeping down fluids, or an extensive rash.

Presently available vaccines are approved for either 16 or 18 year-olds and up.


Stay safe!

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.

Our child doctors focus our efforts on providing the most comprehensive adolescent & pediatric 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 vaccinations, 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.
