Important Information Regarding COVID-19

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.

**We ask patients adhere to the following:

  • Do not bring a guest(s) to your appointment unless you need assistance or if you are under the age of 16.
  • If you have traveled out of the country in the last two weeks, we ask that you reschedule to a later date.
  • If you are showing any signs of flu (see below for symptoms) we ask you to reschedule to a later date or schedule a telemedicine appointment.
  • If you are over the age of 70 or are experiencing flu symptoms, please call our office to schedule a telemedicine appointment.  We can see you online with the exception of skin exams.

We are moving several of our patient appointments to virtual exam (telehealth).  If you would like to see one of our providers via this method, please call to schedule.

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 our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
