In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly. Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus. We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact or office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you. Please view and share the latest COVID-19 Symptoms with friends and family. https://www.cdc.gov
Our new procedures for appointments are as follows: When you arrive in our parking lot, you will call our office and let us know you are here. We will ask you questions regarding patient's current medical condition. When your room is ready, we will call you back to let you know. The patient will be met at the front door and have their temperature taken. The patient is the only one allowed in for their appointment. The ONLY exception is for patients 5 years old and younger, they are allowed ONE adult to accompany them. Please call if you have any questions.
