To promote wellness and safety, we are resuming our normal business hours and routine care on May 20, 2020 with the following implemented new policies for both staff and patients at our office.
Patients and physicians are required to wash their hands before and after an exam.
Staff will sanitize every staff and patient contact area before and after each patient. This includes, but is not limited to: applicable chairs, door handles, pens, clipboards, desk surfaces, faucet handles, eyeglass frames, credit card scanners, screening tools and exam testing equipment.
To avoid contamination of other items, any item touched by a patient should be immediately given to a staff member for sanitization when finished with use.
We ask that you come to your appointment wearing a mask. All staff and patients 3 years old and up will be required to wear masks in the office to reduce droplet emission in the office. If you do not have a mask, our office has some available for purchase for $3.00.
Despite the temporary discomfort, we encourage the use of masks to protect everyone.
Our staff, patients and their families appreciate your thoughtfulness and cooperation.
Only one patient will be allowed in a single office area at a time, with the exception of a single accompanying parent or guardian for minors or a necessary caregiver. Our attention is solely for you.
Whenever possible, patients and staff will be reminded to keep a distance of 6 feet between one another. Friendly waves, smiles and warmth that reaches our eyes and transcends a distance of 6 feet are highly encouraged.
Our office is dedicated to screening both our staff and patients for COVID-19 related risk factors to maximize health and safety in our service to you. If any of the following apply to staff or patient, they will be asking to kindly reschedule their time at the office to a later date:
- Had known exposure to COVID-19
- Has coughing, shortness of breath or other COVID-19 related symptoms
If you are unsure if any of the above apply to you, or you are unsure on how to proceed, our staff will be happy to provide you with recommended next steps, timetables for rescheduling and resources.
