Every day, we learn more about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world, the country, and our community. Our office is dedicated to understanding how it affects our patients and staff. We are making all the necessary changes to our office routine and continuing to use our high standard of infection control and disinfection processes. Aside from our infection control protocols, we have increased the cleaning and disinfection of the common areas and frequently touched surfaces with a high-grade medical disinfectant. Additionally, we will have hand sanitizer available at the front entrance.
We are closely following the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations to adjust to the necessary prevention of the spread of this disease. We have informed our employees on the importance of necessary hand washing and staying home if they feel sick. We also kindly ask our patients to help us contain any potential spread by rescheduling your appointments if you feel unwell or feverish.
As an additional precaution and to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff, we will now be taking each patient’s and visitor’s temperature prior to their entry into the office. If signs of fever are present, we will kindly be asking patients to reschedule appointments to a later time. We will asking additional screening questions prior to patient’s and visitor’s entering our facility.
We respect everyone’s concerns regarding the transmission of COVID-19 and if you wish to reschedule during this time, please feel free to contact our office. We will continue to monitor this situation and do all we can to protect our patient family.
