COVID-19/Coronavirus Update

Overview of the virus

COVID-19 is an illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus. It is believed to spread in ways similar to the common cold—such as through coughs, sneezes, or handshakes. We are following established infection prevention protocols and remain prepared to care for patients. We have trained and practiced for these scenarios. When you enter our clinic, you may see certain staff members wearing masks. This is a preventative measure. Patients who exhibit any respiratory symptoms will also be asked to wear masks and will be rescheduled for non-emergent appointments.

Important Information about your upcoming appointment:

Keep Your Scheduled Appointments

You should not avoid seeking necessary care out of concerns about COVID-19 and you should keep your appointments unless otherwise instructed by your physician. However, if you are experiencing symptoms or think you've been exposed to COVID-19, call your doctor before going to your appointment.

If We Need to Reschedule

Your Appointment
As things evolve, we may reach out to reschedule clinic visits or procedures. In the event that we need to reschedule your appointment, we will call you.

Keep Taking Your Medications

We recommend that you continue taking all medications, as prescribed, unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Contact your physician if you have questions. While you are visiting our office, please remember to follow the CDC’s guidelines concerning social distancing and hand hygiene to protect yourself and others.

EFFECTIVE 3/23/2020 - 4/9/2020:

We will be reducing our office hours and will be open from 8am-2pm. If you have an urgent matter outside of these hours, please call 911. If you need to speak with us about a non-urgent matter, please call our office between the hours of 8am-2pm.
