We’re all in this together!
Even if we can’t hold hands right now. 

Rapid New Test!!!
We have a new test available that can
test for COVID-19 & Flu.

Our office is now testing for COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test. ABC Pediatrics is working tirelessly to provide timely and accessible COVID-19 testing to the community. In order to make the process more efficient, please fill out our COVID-19 form. Once we receive your form, we will contact you to set up an appointment. Click the link below.

What type of a test is this?

It is an ANTIGEN test. The swab is taken from the Nasopharynx (“deep, at the back of nose”).

The QUIDEL Sofia 2 Flu & SARS Antigen FIA employs immunofluorescence technology in a sandwich design that is used with Sofia 2 to detect nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza Virus type A & B.

The United States (U.S.) FDA has made this test available under an emergency access mechanism called an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)*


How much does the test cost?

At the present moment, we are able to get the test at a cost that allows us to pass the savings over to you. For now, the cost of the test is $90. The cost may go up or down based upon how much we are able to buy it for from the manufacturer.

What time is the testing done?

We do the testing between 9:00 AM till about 10 AM..

When will I get my results?

We start calling people at about noon. We will try to call you at least twice to speak to you. Printed results are available in a packet with your name, at the clinic between 5 PM to 6 PM, for your official purposes, excuse, employment requirements etc.

We are trying our best to be as fast as possible. We do understand that you are eager to get the results back at the soonest.

Can I discuss my results with your nurse?

No. You need to discuss your results with your doctor.

Is it possible that what I have is Influenza?

Many of the symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to those of Influenza. These are two different infections however and require entirely different treatment approaches.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly Flu (influenza) vaccine for all children 6 months & older.

Fight the Flu Tips
✓ Wash hands frequently
✓ Sanitize toys
✓ Teach kids to cough in their elbows
✓ Keep kids home from school and child care if they have any flu symptoms

Remember, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your children & your loved ones from the Flu.

Your COVID-19 Vaccination

• COVID -19 vaccines are safe and effective.

• Everyone 12 years of age and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

COVID-19 Vaccine

1- The safety of Covid-19 vaccines is a top priority.
The U.S vaccine safety system ensures that all vaccines are as safe as possible. Learn how federal partners are working together to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. CDC has developed a new tool, v-safe, as an additional layer of safety monitoring to increase our ability to rapidly detect any safety issues with COVID-19 vaccines. V-safe is a new smartphone based, after-vaccination health checker for people who receive COVID-19 vaccines.

2-COVID-19 Vaccination will help you getting COVID-19. Two doses are needed.
You need 2 doses of the current available COVID-19 vaccine. A second shot 3 weeks after your first shot is needed to get the most protection the vaccine has to offer against this serious disease.

3- After COVID-19 vaccination, you may have side effects. This is a normal sign that your body is building protection.
The side effects from COVID-19 vaccination may feel like flu and might even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Learn more about what side effects to expect and get helpful tips on how to reduce pain and discomfort after your vaccination.

4- Cost is not an obstacle to getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. However, vaccination providers may be able to charge administration fees for giving the shot. Vaccination providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fundexternal icon.

5- COVID-19 vaccines are one of many important tools to help us stop this pandemic.
It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, and was your hands often.

Lots of things have changed lately with COVID-19 epidemic, and we at ABC Pediatrics have tried our best to bridge the “social distancing” divide this has caused. The question is “How Can Telemedicine Benefit Us During The COVID-19 Pandemic”?

We at ABC Pediatrics are doing our part by providing support to our patients using Telehealth, while limiting health center visits to only those who absolutely must see the providers in person. Most of the patients have expressed a great satisfaction at the ease of access and the safety of such a visit. Your prescriptions are sent to the Pharmacy and you can go and pick the meds prescribed, with minimal contact with any person.


1- Treat a telemedicine visit just like a regular visit.

2- Feel free to include another person if you want.

3- Don’t stress about the technology.


“As you know, a lot of children are behind in their vaccinations and we are doing our best to schedule as many as we safely can.”

At present we are SCHEDULING every visit and limiting the number of patients in the clinic. Every exam room gets disinfected as does the Triage room, weighing scales, Vitals checking equipment. These all get cleaned to CDC Standards. Every Medical worker in the clinic is wearing a Mask and shield, to protect you, themselves and our families.

“FOR SICK VISITS: All visits are also scheduled and held generally in the afternoon. All tabs are done with the highest level PPE that we have at our disposal.

What conditions do Pediatric Virtual Visits cover?

We can care for the following areas in a Pediatric Virtual Visit:

COVID-19 Evaluation, Sore Throat, Asthma exacerbation or wheezing, Bronchitis, ADHD Evaluation and treatment, cold and cough, influenza, pink eye/eye infections, animal/insect bites, poison oak/poison ivy, Rashes with or without skin infection, Allergies, Sinus infections, stomachache/diarrhea/vomiting, sprains and strains. If in doubt, CALL US!


Sick Child Visits

Our experienced staff knows that illnesses such as colds and flus can be a very emotionally and physically draining experience for parents. We strive to offer fast service and same-day appointments to get your child back on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. The physician who regularly sees your child will determine how severe the illness is and will recommend the necessary steps to relieve symptoms and speed recovery. Our staff effectively communicates with you and other medical professionals to ensure the best choices for your child are made during an illness, regardless of severity. 

Well Child Visits

As children growth and development, a well-child visit and check-ups are important to monitor their growth and development and encourage healthy lifestyles. Keeping your child healthy with physical and emotional support is part of health maintenance. We will share information about proper dental care, immunizations and discipline. 

During the WELL CHILD VISIT, you and the provider will: 


• Review growth and development

• Test hearing and vision

• Perform an appropriate exam

• Give needed vaccinations

• Address any problems or concerns

• Discuss any questions you may have related to development

The well child visit is usually covered 100% by insurance

This is different from a “sick or follow up visit” which does have co-pay. An exclusive Well Child Visit is recommended, but when it’s combined with a “sick visit” a co-pay or deductible may apply.

Because many changes have occurred this year in the healthcare industry, we ask that you contact your insurance company to confirm that your doctor is an in-network participating provider for your particular plan. This is also highly recommended if you are selecting a new insurance plan, as it is the parent’s responsibility to verify whether or not your doctor is an in-network provider for your insurance. Please contact our billing department if you have any questions about this or need assistance. We are contracted providers for Medicaid; therefore, we do accept patients with Medicaid (primary or secondary) coverage.

Because we care!
