According to current evidence, COVID-19 virus is spread mainly from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) or through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes and from surfaces on which these droplets land. It is estimated that 80% of infections are mild or asymptomatic. It is believed that people can shed COVID-19 virus 24-48 hours prior to the onset of symptoms. During this COVID-19 pandemic we want you to feel safe during your visit to our office. These are the measures that we have instituted for your safety and well being as well as the safety of our staff.
What are we doing to keep you safe
Before your office visit
If you have any of the following:
Request either a telehealth appointment or consider rescheduling your appointment.
Consult your primary care physician about the above symptoms.
For both your safety and ours, we ask that you, too, cover your mouth and nose with a mask during your office visit.
If you bring an attendant with you, we may ask them to wait outside.
If you have special needs, let us know and we will accommodate you.
To be able to practice social distancing, we are limiting the number of patients in the waiting room.
To prevent overcrowding in the waiting room, we may ask you to wait outside and will call you when there is room available.
