(Savannah Pediatricians) Coastal Pediatrics in Savannah & Pooler

Friday, May 15th, 2020

Burglar or Bandit? Or maybe neither….

We love this.

Coastal Pediatrics in Savannah staff had noticed more than usual timid and reluctant faces on their patients recently during visits.

They know it can be intimidating for your little one to have to interact with someone wearing a mask. So they posted photos of their physicians and nurse practitioners with and without their masks and suggested that parents take a moment to share the posted photos with them and let them see some of their favorite masked pediatricians or NPs.

See all the Coastal Pediatrics pediatrician and NP masked & unmasked photos here.

SouthCoast Health Family Medicine Physician Dr. Leslie Sizemore and her patient were recently featured in articles for the Savannah Morning News and Bluffton Today on May 2 and May 3, respectively. These articles called attention to the increase in telemedicine exams amid social distancing constraints due to the coronavirus pandemic.

SouthCoast Health had the needed telemedicine technology to implement Virtual Visits services, a medical visit without coming into the provider’s office. Some SouthCoast Health physicians already offered this opportunity and they worked to add their remaining SouthCoast Health providers to the roster to offer this service with the outbreak of COVID-19.
