COVID-19 (coronavirus) Important Update

Dear Valued Patients, 
We are so relieved that the wait is over and that we can see our lovely patients for your appointment needs!
To ensure your safety and wellbeing, we have redesigned and implemented a number of new operational procedures: 
  • Prioritizing Cleanliness: All rooms and high touch areas will be disinfected frequently. Disinfectants, hand sanitizer, and related supplies will be available to staff and patients at all times.Staff will open doors for all patients, and wash hands between each patient interaction.
  • No ‘waiting rooms’: Patients will be asked to arrive when it is time for their appointment to avoid waiting.
    Staggered Appointments: We will be staggering the appointments to ensure adequate time to wipe down spaces in order to maintain a safe and clean environment.
  • Screenings: We will be screening patients over the phone and at the time of their appointment to ensure they are healthy
    Reduced & Healthy Staff: Any of our staff who can work virtually will be working outside of the office, and all staff will be screened daily to ensure they are healthy
  • Protective Equipment: Our staff and patients with appointments will wear a mask and gloves at all times. We ask that all patients come to their appointment with a mask!
