If you have an appointment in either of our offices, please text us (at the number below) with your child’s first and last name to let us know that you have arrived. A nurse will then call you when your exam room is ready. We are doing our best to eliminate use of the waiting rooms to avoid any possible exposures to our patients. For ALL appointments, we are requesting ONLY the parent and patient(s) come to the office for the visit (no well siblings, grandparents, extra visitors).
The text line for Kirkville appointments is 315-415-1593.
The text line for Liverpool appointments is 315-409-6851.
Extended hours to continue
Even during the pandemic, we remain open 7 days a week (weekends reserved for acute visits) and for the time being, all weekend sick appointments will be booked in Kirkville, we hope to open our Liverpool office on weekends as soon as feasibly possible.
COVID Testing 7 days a week
We offer testing 7 days a week! We have RAPID PCR COVID testing that takes about 20 minutes for symptomatic patients. It is a nasal swab (not the uncomfortable nasopharyngeal test). You can book an appointment by calling either office. Rapid testing will be first come first served while supplies last. We also offer testing for asymptomatic patients (example: for travel, school or work), however unfortunately we are not yet able to use the rapid PCR test due to lack of insurance coverage so these tests will be sent out to the local lab and have results back within days.
COVID vaccine questions
We are privileged that CHCA is one of the practices nationwide approved to participate in the Pediatric Moderna COVID19 Vaccine trial. The trial will soon open to infants and children aged 3 months to 12 years who are generally healthy and have not had a positive COVID test. Vaccine studies are how all new vaccines get approved and subsequently recommended for routine preventative care. Every current vaccine went through a similar process. If you are interested please feel free to call our office.
Thank you for your continued support, we are all in this together!
