A Message To Our Patients Regarding COVID-19
Our patient’s care is our utmost concern and we will continue to monitor CDC and local Public Health sites recommendations closely. We always follow universal precautions in all areas of our practice, and we are taking additional infection control measures to ensure the safety of our staff and patients as we navigate this national health crisis.
Additional measures we are taking include the following:
- monitoring all team members and patients’ temperatures when they come to the practice
- wiping down all surfaces that receive patient contact continually throughout the day
- restricting traffic in our offices by limiting patients to one escort per patient
We ask that you notify our practice to reschedule your appointments or surgery as soon as possible.
Thank you for your consideration and helping us do our part to avoid the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Important Information Regarding COVID-19

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
