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. All patients and staff will be pre-screened as to COVID-19 symptoms and exposure and will have their temperature taken prior to entrance into the main office. To combat COVID-19 specifically, our practice has employed UV-C air sanitizers, UV-C room sterilizers, sneeze guards at the front desk and check out desk, and frequent disinfecting of commonly used areas. We are limiting patient cross-exposure by distancing in the waiting room, limiting appointments to patients only (unless a minor or in need of a caregiver), scheduling practices, and pre-registration through our website to minimize your time in the waiting room. Please help us in these efforts to keep you and our staff safe by taking the time to pre-register at home, show up to your appointment on time, and have your rides cell phone number ready so that they can be contacted once have finished your procedure. 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 our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
