Like many of you, we have been monitoring the recent news and spread of the novel coronavirus. As members of the healthcare community, we are dedicated to maintaining the health and safety of our patients and staff. We strictly adhere to and exceed standards for infection control: we wear personal protective gear, such as gloves, masks, and gowns; we use hospital-grade disinfectants; we practice up-to-date sterilization protocols; we utilize single-use disposable materials. All of these measures help facilitate the safety of our patients, our staff, and our practice.
Coronavirus is a virus that presents with cold and flu-like symptoms of varying severity. To ensure a healthy recovery, and to keep our staff and other patients safe, we ask that if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms, please reschedule your upcoming appointment. Additionally, we ask that if you have traveled to any countries that are at high risk for contracting the disease in the past 2 weeks to call our office prior to your appointment and reschedule.
We must all do our part to ensure the health and safety of our patients, staff, friends, and loved ones. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
