Welcome to Whitestone Pediatrics
We are still open. If you choose to do telemedicine from your home: please click on this link.
We are currently not testing for COVID-19. If you feel your child has the virus, please call the office for a telemedicine. Please do not bring your child to the office. If your child is in respiratory distress and needs Immediate care, please call 911.
We have modified our schedule to see only well-child exams in the morning. Sick children will be seen in the afternoon either in the office or via telemedicine. We have completely separate waiting rooms and exams rooms for well child visits and sick visits, which allows us to keep your children safe when they come for their well checks. Patients with symptoms concerning for COVID-19, ie fever, cough, shortness of breath, will be seen via telemedicine only. The American Academy of Pediatrics still recommends completing routine well checks.
Whitestone Pediatrics is a pediatric health care clinic dedicated to the wellness of children from birth to 21 years of age. Located in Cedar Park, Whitestone Pediatrics serves the Greater Williamson County area including Cedar Park, Round Rock, North Austin, Georgetown and Leander.

COVID-19, or coronavirus, is a viral respiratory infection that is spread through close contact with other people and/or respiratory droplets from sneezing or coughing. The virus can live on certain surfaces for up to 3 days. Symptoms include fever, body aches, headache, shortness of breath, and cough. Symptoms can occur between 2-14 days after exposure.
There is currently no vaccine or treatment for the illness. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to stay home, wash your hands often, cough/sneeze into your elbow, and avoid touching your face. If you must go out, try to maintain a distance of 6 feet from other people.

It’s hard to not be anxious right now, but one of the best things you can do for your children is to try to remain calm and keep some sort of routine. This is a great time to tell stories, play board games, and watch movies. Get some outside time in your yard if you are able to do so safely.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (healthychildren.org) has great information on their website for parents
