We take the safety of our patients and our staff very seriously. We want to remain as available as possible to our patients, while we strive to maintain the highest standards of safety and care. It is with this in mind that we have decided that we will remain open and available until further notice, with the following protocols in place:
-As always, we will utilize universal safety precautions with all patients.
-We will avoid any physical contact that is not necessary to deliver care.
-We will facilitate space between patient groups by moving all patients immediately into individual rooms upon arrival.
-We will disinfect all surfaces such as door knobs, computers and tablets, etc. every two hours throughout the day, as well as between every patient.
-All patients will be screened upon arrival for symptoms, and elective surgeries will be postponed for anyone with worrisome symptoms. If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, please call to reschedule your appointment.
-Patients will be allowed in the office with a maximum of ONE additional person when necessary. If others are present, we will require that they wait in the car in order to avoid unnecessary exposure to others. This will include children.
Also, we will soon be instituting telemedicine virtual visits for consultations and post-ops, so please stay tuned for news on that!
Stay safe out there! We will keep you updated on any and all protocol changes via our website and social media as new challenges arise.
