AMC COVID-19 Response

It is more important now than ever to stay connected. Please feel free to reach out to Dr. Eckerle at, or the Adoption Medicine Clinic administrative staff at if we can be of help to you or your family during these unprecedented times.


The AMC team has put together useful resources including activities to keep children entertained through virtual field trips and mental health crisis help lines for each county. We will continue to add to the resource list. Know that we are here for you and for the families in MN. Please reach out if there is a specific resource we can help with.

Preadoption Consultations and Preadoption Medical Reviews:

All preadoption consultations and preadoption medical reviews are operating as usual with no delays.

In Person Clinic Appointments:

A tough decision was made to cancel in person clinic appointments through at least May. The May date is a moving target and we are adjusting as necessary based on guideance from the CDC.


The AMC team is working to launch telehealth appointments at the end of April/early May. The hope is that we can forge a way forward to provide effective team telehealth services for those patients in greater MN and beyond who are unable to visit us in person. We have been working on this issue extremely diligently and will continue to look for innovative ways to accomplish this goal.
