Covid-19 Update:  Savannah Behavioral Pediatrics is Dedicated to Safety and Support

We are excited to announce that we are offering both telehealth appointments as well as in-person appointments, starting June 1, 2020.  We are here to provide families and children with greatly needed support and guidance during this stressful and rapidly changing time period.  We are following safety guidelines during this period, including in-car check-in procedures, sanitizing between all in-person appointments, and requirements to check your temperature (and that of your children) prior to attending an appointment.  We continue to ask that sick children and/or family members cancel any in-person appointments and remain at home. Please call the office if you would like to make a new telehealth or in-person appointment.  A copy of our safety precautions is included below:

Office Safety Precautions in Effect During the Pandemic

My office is taking the following precautions to protect our patients and help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

  • My staff maintains safe distancing.
  • We have masks available for adults who would like them.
  • Restroom soap dispensers are maintained and everyone is encouraged to wash their hands.
  • Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol is available in the therapy/testing rooms, the waiting room and at the reception counter.
  • We schedule appointments at specific intervals to minimize the number of people in the clinic.
  • We ask all patients to wait in their cars or outside and call the office upon arrival.  We are getting patients directly into clinic rooms to minimize the opportunity for contact in the waiting room.
  • Credit card pads, pens and other areas that are commonly touched are thoroughly sanitized after each use.
  • Tissues and trash bins are easily accessed. Trash is disposed of on a frequent basis.
  • Common areas are thoroughly disinfected at the end of each day.

Changing Behavior. Changing Lives.

Are challenging behaviors interfering with your family life?
Does anxiety keep your child from living the life they want?
Would you like to help your child live up to their academic potential?

You have come to the right place. Welcome to Savannah Behavioral Pediatrics! We are a team of caring professionals who partner closely with families and schools to better understand and address challenging behaviors, learning difficulties, and developmental delays. We also provide specialized services in the area of behavioral pediatrics (e.g., tics, toileting, sleep problems).

We look forward to working with you and your child to improve skills and reduce behavioral or learning challenges.

What families are saying:

“At the beginning of the year, we started a program with Dr. Duke called Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). It has changed our families lives and added so much more peace and joy to our days together! This was not the first thing we tried at all, BUT I can tell you that it was the most successful thing we have done. We are so much better equipped to handle our children’s changing behaviors and finally found the tools we need to better enjoy each other! Praise God!! Dr. Duke is amazing, patient, encouraging, knowledgable, dependable, and caring! Our family will forever be grateful for her dedication to help families!”

“Love, love, love Dr Duke! You have and continue to provide us with great guidance and the proper tools to make positive changes within our family! We are so very thankful!”
