COVID-19 Update from Kaplan Barron

We are now offering telemedicine services! Learn more by clicking here

As promised, we told you we would keep you updated. Here is what we are currently doing to protect our patients, parents, and community. This is ever changing so stay tuned!

We currently DO NOT have the capability to test for COVID-19 here at the office. If this changes in the future, we will be sure to let our community know but at this time, there is NO testing at private offices.

The doctors, management, and staff here at KBPG appreciate your patience during this time. It’s a learning curve for all of us but we will get through this together!
