Goodbye, Rick…

It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye

Rick Maniace, NP in Rochester, New York

After 25 years with the Genesis Pediatrics family, we are sad to announce that our Nurse Practitioner, Rick Maniace, has left the practice for a new endeavor. We thank him for the years of care he has provided our patients, and he will be missed tremendously!

Best of luck, Rick!

Masks & Social Distancing Continue To Be Required

Masks & Social Distancing Are Still Required

As New York State continues to slowly move through the re-opening phases, please know that it is still important to maintain social distancing as well as wear masks in public places. 

Genesis Pediatrics is working very hard to keep our patients and families as safe as possible. 

When you come to the office, you will see that social distancing measures have been taken at check-in, check-out and throughout the office in general for our employees.  Look for the stickers and X’s on the floor!

 

We have added a layer of protection with plexiglass for our front staff  so you can still see their smiling faces upon check-in and check-out!

 

The med techs, nurses and providers are wearing masks throughout the office. We ask that all caregivers and children age 2 and older wear a mask while in the office.  This is for the safety of everyone!   

Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to do what is necessary to keep everyone safe!

Understandable given these uncertain times. Genesis Pediatrics has worked hard over the past 2 months to make the office as safe as possible, both for our employees as well as our patients and their families.

  5. We continue to separate “well” children from “sick” children who are in the office. 

  6. We continue to screen of all of our employees twice daily.  

  7. We are limiting the number of people in the office at a time by asking that only 1 caregiver accompany each child to their appointment.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through this pandemic together!
