As our communities continue to feel the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share what we are doing to keep our patients, families, staff and community safe and healthy, as this is our top priority.
As always, we follow strict infection control procedures. We have significantly ramped up our efforts and are wiping down and disinfecting high use areas, such as our waiting room, front desk, and restroom, with a focus on chair arms, door handles, light switches, faucets, and countertops. All pens and clipboards will be disinfected after each use. We have temporarily removed all reading materials from the waiting room. We kindly ask each patient to use hand sanitizer upon entry to the office, which will be provided at the front desk.
We ask if you are sick or experiencing any symptoms, including runny nose, sore throat, cough, or fever, or have been exposed to someone with the virus, that you reschedule your appointment. Similarly, all staff members have been advised to stay home if they are ill or experiencing even minor symptoms. Please notify us of any recent travel at the time of confirmation of your appointment. It may be necessary to reschedule at the discretion of the provider.
We ask our patients to refrain from bringing family members and other guests to appointments whenever possible.
Please be advised to continue washing your hands and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
If you have any concerns, please address with a staff member. As always, we remain committed to the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff, and community.
As of now, we are running business as usual. We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds, and will follow any and all guidelines from the CDC and update you when necessary. We are doing what is necessary to help mitigate the spread of this disease.
Thank you for your patience in these challenging times and stay healthy.
