COVID-19 Guidelines

Protecting our patients and health care personnel is crucial to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to maintain our services to provide much-needed treatment for patients during and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here to read more of our COVID-19 Updates

Staff:

  • All staff will undergo daily temperature and contacts screens and will not have direct patient care if symptomatic or had known recent exposure.
  • Staff will wear facemasks at all times in the clinic and follow CDC guidelines for handwashing and disinfecting.
  • All equipment and examination rooms will go through a thorough disinfecting process between patients and, as usual, universal precautions will be maintained.

Patients

  • Patients will be contacted in advance to screen for exposure and symptoms.
  • All patients are required to wear a facemask at all times in the clinic according to CDC recommendations. We will supply one, if unavailable.
  • All patients will have non-contact temperature prior to entering the treatment area.
  • Companions will be restricted whenever possible (unless medically necessary) and will need to wear a facemask and undergo screening as well, if present.

Guidelines

  • Appointments will be spaced out to minimize patient-to-patient contact and number of people in the office at a given time.
  • Physical separation of waiting room chairs and markings to promote social distance within the clinic to maintain a 6-foot separation between individuals whenever possible.
  • We will utilize telemedicine to the greatest extent possible.
  • All visits will be rescheduled for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19, until at least 10 days have passed since onset of symptoms and at least 72 hours (3 days) have passed since recovery (no fever without use of fever-reducing medications).
