Redbud Pediatrics has temporarily closed our West office and is directing all patient care to the East side. This enabled us to consolidate our team in response to the COVID19 pandemic. Our goal is to limit our staff’s exposure to patients as well as our patients’ exposure to staff to limit transmission of the virus. We have cancelled all but essential in-person visits and reserved dedicated “clean” space for well checks with immunizations and other non-infectious medical care. Our brand-new East office has two independent patient care wings which are on separate HVAC systems. The north wing, previously unused, has been opened and is the area for “sick” care. The south wing is reserved for “clean” care.
In addition, our patients can see a doctor via telemedicine anytime during business hours and on evenings and weekends for urgent concerns. To access telemedicine, just call our office. During weekdays, our daytime staff will schedule your child and explain the visit process, and after-hours or weekends our nurse triage service will arrange the visit.
As always, Redbud Pediatrics remains committed to quality, compassionate, science-based care for your child and the children of Wichita.

In an effort to provide our patients care during local quarantine, self-isolation and general social distancing measures, we now offer telemedicine appointments.
Telemedicine gives us the ability to provide quality healthcare services safely and remotely to patients via computer, tablet or mobile device. Please call the office to schedule a telemedicine visit if your child is ill.

We now have dedicated hours of the day for NON-INFECTIOUS visits (such as well checkups and newborns) and sick or potentially contagious visits. Please call ahead to ensure that your child is scheduled accordingly.
In order to reduce the transmission of illness, we will no longer accept walk in patients at any of our office locations. We have many same day sick appointments; please call to schedule an appointment.
If we are not able to immediately place your child in an exam room, please be prepared to return to your car until a room is available. We will call you when the room is ready. In addition, please consider the need to limit the number of people who accompany your child on a visit to our office. Additional persons may be asked to return to their car to reduce the spread of illness.
Our staff and physicians will attempt to limit the time they spend in a sick child’s room to 10 (ten) minutes total in order to avoid sharing of respiratory germs. This is a necessary safety measure as we attempt to keep our health care providers healthy so that we may continue caring for you.
We have ramped up our cleaning efforts at our clinics and are doing our utmost to ensure a clean environment. This means more frequent sanitizing of surfaces and also that we will open our buildings regularly to allow fresh air in. This may cause some temperature fluctuations in our offices.
