CORONAVIRUS  RESPONSE

Tullahoma Pediatrics, PLLC/Manchester Pediatrics/Royal Pediatrics is dedicated to keeping our patients and staff healthy.  To that end, we are staying up to date on the novel coronavirus pandemic.  This is a rapidly changes situation and we are adjusting each day to new information.  We have made the following changes/recommendations to respond to  the coronavirus pandemic:

*******************************************************************************************************************************************As of May 8, 2020, WE ARE CLEANING OUR EXAM AND WAIT ROOMS WITH UV-C LIGHTS AT ALL LOCATIONS.  

UV-C cleaning kills 99.9% of all airborne and surface bacteria and viruses. 

We still diligently clean our clinics using CDC recommended infectious control protocols prior to running the UVC lights.

*******************************************************************************************************************************************                          If you or your child has a fever, cough and known exposure to someone with coronavirus, please call the clinic at (931)455-2674 before arrival.                                                                                                                                    DO NOT WALK IN TO THE CLINIC.                                                                                                                                You will be asked to call when you arrive and wait in your car until a nurse gives you further instructions. 

                                                 We recommend that all patients, including those who are well, wait in the car after checking in to maintain social distancing.                               We understand that some patients do not have this option, so the wait rooms will be open. 

                                                                                          Please only bring your sick child with you to the appointment.                                                                                                Please keep siblings at home or have them wait in the car with another adult. This is to avoid further exposure. 

                                                                              Your child will be given a mask to wear (if available and age appropriate) to prevent spread of illness.                                    We do not currently have a large enough supply to provide masks to other family members.  Only well adults should be bringing a child to an appointment. 

                                                                                                    We are scheduling sick and well appointments at certain times.                                                                                            There are some exceptions, so you may be asked to enter at an alternate entrance

          Tullahoma AM- Sick children, PM-Well children

          Manchester AM- Well children, PM sick children

          Royal, Fayetteville AM - Well children, PM sick children

Some visits are available by telehealth. 

We have removed books, magazines, and toys from the waiting and exam rooms to prevent the spread of illness.  

We are diligently cleaning our clinics between patients using CDC recommended infectious control protocols.

We pride ourselves on providing compassionate, comprehensive services to children from birth through adolescence, and we're glad you've chosen us as your child's patient-centered medical home.

We are committed to making our practice convenient and accessible for your family. We want you to feel confident that when you choose Tullahoma Pediatrics/Manchester Pediatrics/Royal Pediatrics as your child's primary physician, you're working with professionals who are qualified, experienced and caring. We do this by equipping you with the support and resources you need to make the most educated decisions about your child's health. This means that you and your child will receive a superior quality of care and a more positive experience.

We are excited to announce that Tullahoma Pediatrics, Manchester Pediatrics and Royal Pediatrics have been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Program. A medical home is a trusting partnership between a doctor led healthcare team and an informed patient. It includes an agreement between the doctor and the patient that acknowledges the role of each in a total healthcare program. It focuses on each patient's health goals and needs, and coordinates patient care across all settings.

We want to thank you for choosing Tullahoma Pediatrics/Manchester Pediatrics/Royal Pediatrics for your child's medical care and welcome you to our practice. We can assure you that you'll feel confident in our ability to meet and exceed all of your expectations. Please call our Tullahoma office us at (931) 455-2674 if you have any questions or to schedule an appointment.

CheckUps

We see children of all ages for Well Child and Sports Physical appointments. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines for all well child checks.

If your child is sick, we do offer same day appointments as available. Though we do allow walk in visits, we ask that you be patient as we will see appointment made patients prior to walk in patients.

New to our practice?

Please fill out a New Patient Form prior to your visit.

We proudly support parents and children for:
Behavioral Health
School & Sports Physicals
Autism

Behavioral Health

We are able to meet most behavioral health needs at our office. In the event that we are not able to meet a behavioral health need, we will provide referrals to other specialists.

The initial appointment needs to be scheduled with a provider for a complete physical. You will be given a packet of paperwork to be completed and returned within 45 days. Once the packet has been received, the second appointment is scheduled with a provider experienced in behavioral health issues.

Because insurance benefits vary in coverage, we strongly suggest that you contact your insurance carrier for specific behavioral health coverage.

Please fill out a Behavioral Health Form prior to your initial appointment.
