The health and wellbeing of our patients is always our top priority. We are closely monitoring the developments related to the coronavirus (COVID 19) and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our patients and our staff.
It is important that you know we will continue routinely disinfecting all clinics throughout the day in order to provide the cleanest environment for our patients.
In order to do our best to keep everyone safe, we would like to ask you to take a few precautions when coming for your appointment:
1. Limit any additional people accompanying you to your visit.
2. If you are currently coughing, please request a mask to wear.
3. If you are currently experiencing a cough and a fever over 100.4, please call your office before entering the building. We will bring a mask to your car to reduce exposure to other patients.
4. Keep a recommended 6 feet of distance away from other people as often as possible.
Remember, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following precautionary measures and guidelines to help keep everyone safe and healthy:
1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.
2. Use an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
3. Keep away from others that are sick.
4. Avoid high-touch surfaces in public areas.
5. Avoid touching your face, nose and eyes.
6. Clean and disinfect surfaces in your home and office regularly.
7. Avoid all non-essential travel.
We are committed to continuing to provide high-quality healthcare to our patients, especially in a time when you need us the most.
