Important Information Regarding COVID-19
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.
You may see some changes when time for your appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked the same questions again when you are in the office.
- Your temperature will be taken when you arrive at the clinic. Patients with fevers will be rescheduled.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That may mean that you’ll have fewer options for scheduling your appointment. It also means it is even more important that you keep scheduled appointments. If you need to change an appointment, please contact the office at least 24-48 hours in advance so we can offer your time to others in need of care can be seen.
- Patients may not bring a companion to their appointment, unless the patient requires assistance (e.g. pediatric patients, special needs patients, elderly patients, etc.) Patient companions not meeting these criteria will be asked to wait in their vehicle to provide social distancing for patients being seen for treatment.
To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice and other patients, 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 been hospitalized or 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.
