This is an unprecedented time, bringing uncertainty and unease – especially when it comes to visiting a healthcare provider’s office. You may be asking yourself, “Is it safe to visit my doctor’s office and what precautions are they taking?”
Here’s what we are doing
Updated visitor and companion policies. To limit the overall traffic in the practice, we are limiting patients to one (1) essential visitor if absolutely necessary.
Infection prevention precautions. We thoroughly clean and sanitize all patient waiting rooms, exam rooms, and other care areas according to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Screening. We are screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, or fever prior to entering the waiting area.
Mask precautions. All staff are asked to wear a mask, and we will mask patients or their visitor if they show any symptoms of respiratory infection, have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19-positive individual, or have traveled to a geographic endemic hot spot.
Personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE is in use at levels recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Social distancing. All staff, patients, and visitors will adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Providing more options to stay in touch with your provider.
- In-person appointments are available and we look forward to seeing you in person.
- Telehealth visits. You may now “visit” your provider from wherever you may be, simply by using your existing mobile device or computer.
- Our Patient portal remains the best way to send secure messages, receive testing results, and share information privately between you and your provider.
