The well-being and safety of our patients is our highest priority. Please be assured that we are following all guidelines and precautions suggested by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, and will continue to monitor new information as it becomes available.
- If you are experiencing any symptoms of respiratory illness or cold symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath) on the day of your appointment, or have been feeling ill during the week leading up to your appointment, PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE!
- If you have any known exposure or suspected exposure to someone that is infected with COVID-19, PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE!
- In these cases, please call the office during normal office hours, and we will happily reschedule you to a more appropriate time. If you feel that the reason for your visit demands urgent attention, please call the office to discuss alternative methods of receiving care.
What to expect on the day of your appointment:
- Please do not bring family or friends (including children) to your appointment during this time. Of course, exceptions will be made for a family member that is accompanying a patient that is also a minor.
- All patients will be screened for fever and symptoms of illness upon arrival prior to entering the waiting room and asked to reschedule if an illness is detected.
- Staff members will be wearing masks, and we encourage all patients to wear masks as well if possible.
- We ask that you thoroughly wash your hands for 20 seconds both before and after your office visit to help protect both you and our staff members.
- The staff has been instructed to refrain from close personal greetings such as handshakes and hugs.
Our office practices universal healthcare precautions for the prevention of infection in our treatment rooms and common areas. We will be continually wiping down doorknobs, treatment surfaces and countertops between patients.
We appreciate your trust in allowing us to partner with you in your healthcare and thank you for your assistance in helping us decrease the risk of transmission of the virus. We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment and will be happy to answer any questions during our office hours.
