Our Private Reception Area!
As a parent or guardian bringing your child for their appointment, we will escort you to our private outdoor garden reception area where we welcome one family at a time to relax and observe your child being treated in the clinic area. You will have easy access to Dr. Valley and her team for questions and conversations. If you prefer to remain in your car, we can communicate through Zoom, Facetme or a simple phone call. After your child's appointment they will be guided out to the garden area to meet their parents and exit the building area. All children whose parents chose to remain in their car will be escorted back to their car by a team member.
