Recently, the World Health Organization officially declared the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. We are closely monitoring this situation.
It’s more important than ever that we remain committed to our mission of enhancing health and well-being for our patients, communities and ourselves. Therefore, it is our intention to remain open, but to change our procedures to
protect our patients and staff as much as possible. Please read the following information and be aware that we will be making updates as the situation continues to evolve.
1. If you have a fever, cough or feel sick, please call us to postpone your appointment until your symptoms resolve (about 2 weeks).
2. If you have traveled to a high-risk area or have been in contact with a known COVID-19 infected person, you should postpone your appointment and contact your primary care provider.
3. We recommend that patients that are not in the high-risk category keep their appointments.
4. If possible, do not bring other guests to your appointment. Please ask them to wait in the car in the parking lot.
5. Starting Monday, 3/16, we will begin to take patient’s temperatures to scan for any actively contagious symptoms before treatment. If you have an objection to using our thermometer bring your own.
6. There will be hand sanitizer and ample soap available and we will ask patients to clean their hands upon arrival.
7. Our staff will wear latex disposable gloves which will be changed after each patient interaction.
8. We will continue to follow Universal Precautions. All hard surfaces will be cleaned between patients.
9. As of May 18 we ask that all persons entering the clinic wear a face mask. If you do not have one, one will be provided.
10. We sanitize our digital sign-in pad after each use.
11. To reduce your risk and support your well-being we utilize HEPA approved air filters in our office, which according to NASA, can capture 99.9% of virus-sized particles, including COVID-19.
We know that some of these restrictions and recommendations may be burdensome, but please realize they all are intended to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
