COVID-19 Information

Checking in to Your Visit

All patients may now enter the waiting room to check in, without calling beforehand from your car. Please continue to wear a mask while inside the office.

If you would prefer to wait in your car before your visit, you can still call the front desk to check in, at 781-356-6200 ext.105.

  • Are you testing in your office?
    • We offer PCR testing to all patients in our practice, who have active viral symptoms and/or a close contact with COVID-19.
    • Elective Testing (for those without symptoms or a close contact; e.g. for travel):
      • We offer elective testing for a fee, as most health insurance providers do not reimburse for elective COVID-19 testing. Please call our office for more details.
      • There are free sites available for COVID-19 testing, specifically the Stop the Spread sites offered by the state. Please see the general testing resources below for more information.
  • How do I get my test results?
    • Our office processes COVID-19 PCR tests in-house, with a turnaround time of approximately 40 minutes. You can view your child’s test results in Patient Gateway, and they are not visible to us any sooner than they appear in your child’s chart.
    • If you are not yet enrolled in Patient Gateway, please call our office to enroll.
  • General testing resources and testing sites:
    • Get Tested MA!: An excellent resource from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, including test site locations, and information about the different types of available tests.
    • COVIDtests.gov: Free rapid antigen testing kits for households
    • COVID-19 Testing for Childcare: A great resource in Braintree with free PCR testing for children who are in childcare and their families.
    • CIC Health: Another good resource for families living closer to Boston, with generally fast turnaround times
    • List of testing sites specific to the City of Boston
    • Search page for testing sites in MA. Select “Show Advanced Filters” to filter sites that do/do not test children.
  • What kind of test should I get?
    • If you are getting tested due to symptoms, or due to exposure to someone with COVID-19, we recommend PCR testing rather than rapid antigen testing. The former is a much more accurate test than the latter.

The physicians at Milton Pediatrics support the positions of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and an important part of the nation-wide strategy to combat COVID-19.

Mental Health Resources

This is a very disruptive and stressful time for our families, and we have seen a significant increase in mental health issues.
