What will Journey Pediatrics do to limit spread of COVID19?

Journey Pediatrics wants to partner with you in complying with the Governor’s order for New Mexico residents to stay home.

  • Adults and children over the age of 2 years will be required to bring and wear a face covering when entering our building for any reason. 
  • Request a mask HERE.
  • Please limit the number of people attending any in-office visit to one parent and the child who is needing to be seen as best as possible.
  • We will continue to allow families to check in from the parking lot for any in-office appointments and encourage you to do so.
  • Additionally, we are offering Telemedicine visits for our patients. 
    • At this time, all Well Child appointments are in-office only, however, we can consider telemedicine on a case by case basis.
    • We are scheduling urgent care and in-office sick visits for patients with NON-Covid-19 related symptoms
    • We are scheduling telemedicine appointments for Covid-19 related symptoms
    • Please call us to talk with one of our staff members to determine if we can serve your family’s need through a Telemedicine visit.
    • An appointment time will be set for you and a Provider will call you as close to that time as possible.  We will do as much as we are able to by phone, however, not all visits qualify for a Telemedicine visit and the. Provider may request a face-to-face appointment. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to find the best ways to serve and care for your family.  Journey safe. Journey well.
