Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

As we are all aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is dramatically affecting our daily lives. We wish to remain available to our patients, as long as we can do so in a healthy, safe environment and in accordance with state, local, and federal guidelines. We may need to adjust our schedule in these challenging times; please be patient with us.
As a medical facility, we already practice “universal precautions” to protect ourselves and our patients against any kind of contamination, and we have reinforced these protocols.
All of our staff are trained to follow the most current CDC guidelines to limit the spread of the virus, including how we interact with and protect patients and how we disinfect waiting areas, exam rooms, and diagnostic equipment in between patients. We have increased the frequency of our disinfecting protocols and are constantly sanitizing our equipment to maintain its sterility.
We do, however, have a few requests to help keep our patients and staff safe:
To minimize the number of people in our waiting rooms, please do not bring friends or relatives with you, unless they are necessary for your care and are symptom-free.
If you have a fever or symptoms/signs of lower respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath) in the last 14 days, please call us and we will gladly reschedule your appointment.
