COVID-19 Precautions

We require that you wear a mask for your in person appointment.

For your safety and ours, please let us know if you:

  • have recently tested positive for COVID19,

  • have traveled in the past 14 days or have been exposed to anyone who has been sick within the past 14 days or

  • have any symptoms such as fever, cough, muscle pains, headache, sore throat, or shortness of breath.

If the answers to these questions are yes, we will convert the appointment to telemedicine or reschedule your appointment to a future date.

Telemedicine appointment

If you are having symptoms that may COVID-19 related or you know that you have COVID-19, please contact our office to schedule a telemedicine appointment. We may be able to offer you valuable advice about what you can do to feel better and recover more quickly.

If symptoms are severe or life-threatening, please call 911 immediately. Your safety is our top priority.

COVID-19 office policy

 Everyone is required to wash their hands upon entering the office and wear a mask. However, if you forgot your mask or you or you do not have access to a mask it will be provided to you. You will be required to put the mask on before you can enter the office.

Family members and other guests accompanying a patient can join the patient in the doctor’s office for the entire visit or to wait outside the building until the end of the visit. Family members and guests will not be permitted to wait in the waiting room. Patients, family, and other guests must always follow the above safety procedures when in the office.

We will use a contactless thermometer to check patients, family, and guests for fever. Anyone with a fever will be asked to remain outside and the visit may need to be rescheduled as a telemedicine visit or for a future date.

Our office is thoroughly cleaned after each patient visit and I am wearing gloves, masks, and when appropriate, face shields or goggles. Hand sanitizer will be available for you to use when in the office if you do not have your own. When your appointment has finished, I will perform checkout and review any additional instructions for laboratory testing .
