As part of our response to COVID-19, we’re taking additional proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of anyone visiting our office so you can feel confident you and your loved ones are protected while at our office.
Here are several common questions and answers addressing our increased safety measures.
Here’s what our team is doing to keep you safe:
- We routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as waiting room furniture, countertops, pens, desks and keyboards, door handles, phones, light switches, faucets, etc.
- After each patient encounter, we are disinfecting exam rooms: exam tables and chairs, etc.
- We wash our hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol.
- All employees are wearing a mask at all times while at work.
- We ask that patients wear a mask or face covering at the time of your visit, for your safety as well as for the safety of fellow-patients and our staff.
- All employees and patients observe the 6-foot “social distancing”.
- If accompanying a patient into the appointment is necessary, we ask this be limited to one designated person who also is wearing a mask or face covering.
- Non-essential family members and visitors are asked to remain in their vehicles during the patient’s appointment.
- All employees and patients/visitors are screened upon initial entry into the office. This includes a temperature check and screening questionnaire.
- All employees and patients with respiratory symptoms must remain home.
- We meet to continually evaluate workflow, protocols and best practices.
- We continue to monitor guidelines from the CDC and adjust protocols as needed.
Our goal is to provide you with the same quality care you’ve always been able to receive with us while following all recommended federal, state and local COVID-19 guidelines.
- Loss of taste or smell
- Shortness of breath
- Sore throat
- Muscle pain
The health and safety of our team, our patients and our community is our top priority. If you believe you are experiencing symptoms of the virus, please contact our office and reschedule your appointment as soon as you can.
