COVID-19

To our Valued Patients,

As COVID-19 impacts all of us, please know that our office staff and providers are taking extra steps to help deter any spread of the coronavirus and are closely following CDC guidelines and recommendations. We have added important measures to our routine protocols; to help avoid exposure to our patients, their family, our staff members and healthcare providers, we are pre-screening everyone prior to entering the office. All patients, including those accompanying you, will have his/her vitals taken by a Medical Assistant in front of the building before entering the office.  Those accompanying you will only be allowed to enter the building if it’s crucial and their presence is needed during your appointment.

Per the CDC recommendations if you think you have been infected with this virus and are short of breath, have a fever, or cough you should stay home and self-isolate.  We recommend that if your symptoms are mild you stay home, rest, hydrate, use decongestant and fever reducers.  If symptoms worsen, and/or you have other medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension, lung disease,  we recommend that you are evaluated at your local emergency room.

Many medical questions can be answered by having a telehealth appointment where you leave a message and one of our physicians will call you back.  Please note that this is a billable service and some insurance companies do not cover it.  Many health plans also have on call nurses that can answer many of your questions.  Make sure to check your insurance company’s portal.
