We understand that these changes are impacting your experience in the office. In order to keep our patients and staff healthy we are required to implement these new guidelines.

For more details on safety precautions at our physician offices please call the office.

During these unprecedented times your care will be delivered differently. These changes have been made to comply with new guidelines set in place to promote social distancing and ensure our patients continue to receive their care in a safe environment.

You may notice the following changes at your next appointment:

  • Health Screenings before your appointment is scheduled and again upon arrival. This will include a temperature check and questionnaire. All who enter the building will be screened.
  • Universal masking for employees and patients. We encourage you to bring your own face covering. One will be provided if needed.
  • Accommodations for social distancing. No waiting room. You will be asked to call from your vehicle to register. Once a room is available you will be taken directly to a room.
  • Designated entrances for patients. Please follow the directions that will be given to you over the phone.
  • Handwashing is the best defense but hand sanitizer will be available for use.
