We continue to rise to the challenge of caring for our patients during this time of crisis. In order to comply with the most up-to-date guidelines provided by the CDC, we are implementing the following changes starting immediately:
- Waiting area chairs are being spaced to allow for the appropriate 6ft. between each, which may mean removing chairs
- If this means there is only space for 1 patient to wait at a time, any additional patients will be asked to wait in their car until it is time to go back for their exam. You will then be called when it is time to see the doctor
- Only patients are allowed in the exam room, with the exception of patients who are minors requiring a legal guardian or patients requiring physical assistance of a guardian/family member. All other family members and guests will be asked to wait in their car until the conclusion of the visit
In addition, we ask that you review the following and consider rescheduling you appointment if you meet any of these criteria:
-Have you been out of the country or anywhere with a travel advisory within the last 14 days?
-Have been exposed to someone who is suspected of having COVID-19?
-Are you over 60 years of age?
-Have you had any flu-like symptoms within the past 48 hours including: fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, diarrhea?
We thank you for your patience during this time.
