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 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.
Only patients with appointments and 1 guardian are permitted in the office.
Once you arrive please stay in your car and call us that you have arrived. When we are ready we will contact you to come in.
Please wear a mask when entering the building. We will take your temperature and ask some questions relating to COVID-19.
No more magazines, toys or giveaways for the time being.
We will have hand sanitizer when you enter the office.
Adhere to social distancing - 6 feet of distance at all times.
Please reschedule if anyone in your household has been sick in the last 2 weeks.
Please allow us enough time for enhanced disinfection between patients.
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.
