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. 
    • 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. 
  • At this time, all Well Child appointments are in-office only and can be checked in from the parking lot over the phone. Please call us when you arrive.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to find the best ways to serve and care for your family.  Journey safe. Journey well.
