Check-in Process

For the safety of your family, this information is intended for use by North Seattle Pediatrics patients exclusively.

A screening questionnaire will be texted to you to complete prior to a scheduled appointment. Click here if you would like to see the questions.

If any of the above are yes, you might be rescheduled or we will have someone call you before the appointment time to get more details. Your doctor then determines if we proceed with the appointment.

When you have arrived in our parking lot, please call from your car to check in.  If you walk to our building, then call before entering the building. Call 206-368-6080. Choose option 5 for dedicated phone lines for this check in process.

If the screening questionnaire was not completed, we will be asking these screening questions:

1) Has the patient, or any household member or close contact of the patient, had any of the following in the past 72 hours:

Fever (100.4 or higher), chills, shortness of breath, cough, nasal congestion/drainage, loss of smell or taste, sore throat, abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea.

2) Has the patient(s), any household or close contact of the patient(s) been exposed to anyone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 within the past 10 days? Or is anyone currently isolating/quarantining while awaiting results of a Covid test?

If yes, you must quarantine for 5 or 10 days and have no symptoms for at least 72 hours before the appointment.

3) Has the patient(s), any household member or close contact of the patient(s) traveled on an airplane in the past 10 days? Or have you had any visitors that have traveled here via airplane in the past 10 days?

Once again, if any of the above are yes, you might be rescheduled or we will have someone call you while you’re still in the car to get more details. Your doctor then determines if we proceed with the appointment.

Office Policies:

  • We REQUIRE masks to be worn at all times in our office by anyone over age 2yrs.
  • For patients over 2 months old, we ask that only ONE parent/caregiver attend appointments. We may make exceptions when a parent is the interpreter for a primary caregiving parent, or with families of twins/triplets. A second parent/caregiver is encouraged to join the visit by phone or video (FaceTime, etc.)
  • No siblings, unless they have a scheduled appointment.

Our policies differ from the CDC guidelines to protect our patients that are not yet eligible for the Covid vaccine. We will review making any changes after the 6 month through 4 year olds are vaccinated.
