Important Information Regarding COVID-19
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. We have removed magazines, toys, access to the coffee machine, etc. from the waiting area to limit touch surfaces. Even more stringent disinfection protocols have been incorporated which include wiping down all “touch surfaces” in patient access areas throughout the day. These surfaces include doorknobs, elevator buttons, reception room chairs, and the check-in and check-out counters. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
We will be asking several questions regarding health history prior to your appointment and we will be screening each patient again upon arrival. This will include checking your temperature and oxygen levels. If you must have someone accompany you, it is required that we screen them as well for COVID-19. We are requesting that if you have a mask, that you please wear it for your appointment. Additionally, we are requesting that only one other person accompany the patient if that is required.
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 COVID-19.
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.
