Inclement Weather Reminders at Anderson Hills Pediatrics

It appears winter weather is finally making its way to the Cincinnati area.  We love that this time of year often leads to building snowmen, sledding, and other fun-filled outdoor activities.

Since inclement weather may occur soon, we wanted to share information on how our offices handle these conditions.

  1. Communication: We will contact you if we need to cancel your visit due to weather. You may receive notice from us by phone call, text, or email, depending upon the time of day and the number of appointments needing to be canceled. Rest assured, a team member will communicate with you to find an alternative time to visit your pediatrician safely. It is safe to assume we are open if you do not hear from us.
  2. Social Media Updates:  We will post on our social media sites as soon as we determine we are canceling appointments. Please follow our Facebook or Instagram accounts for this and additional health-related information.
  3. Telemedicine Alternatives:If you are scheduled for select appointments such as behavioral health visits, medication follow-ups, and simple ill appointments, we may offer a virtual visit as an alternative form of care from the comfort of your home. Unfortunately, visits that require a physical exam or testing are not always appropriate for telemedicine.
  4. Patient Cancellations: Should you have issues traveling to your visit due to inclement weather, we offer the option to cancel at no charge.
