Important Information Regarding COVID-19

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. 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. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.

As our primary goal is to ensure patient and staff safety, we have created new protocols for the re-opening:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions. You will be asked those same questions when you are in the office.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean fewer time options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will take your temperature before you are brought back, temperatures of 100.5 or greater will be rescheduled at least 14 days.
  • We ask that any guests joining you for your appointment wait in the car for you until your appointment is over.
  • Masks are required of anyone entering the office.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area and office at any one time.
  • We have Surgically Clean Air™ in each or our operatories and throughout the office to protect our patients. Surgically Clean Air™ is among the most advanced and effective Air Purification Systems on the market, and considered “The World’s Best Indoor Air Purifiers.” Filters used in the Surgically Clean Air also meets the guidelines for General Surgery Applications.

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. 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 the coronavirus.

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.
