Keeping Our Patients Safe
Keeping you safe while you're getting care is our highest priority.
Our team is taking extra measures to provide COVID-safe care for the health and wellness of our patients and caregivers.
What is COVID-safe care?
Numerous precautions are in place for your protection
Appointments are limited so fewer people are in the office at any time.
Patients are screened for symptoms and risk factors during appointment confirmation calls.
Everyone who comes is screened for symptoms before being allowed to enter the office.
Facemasks are worn by everyone inside – patients and employees –
and our caregivers are washing hands before and after caring for every patient.
Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the office and every exam room.
Exam rooms are cleaned and disinfected between every patient.
Entry areas and frequently touched surfaces are disinfected regularly throughout the day.
Furniture in waiting areas has been rearranged for appropriate social distancing.
Televisits can be used for some appointments so you can talk with your provider from the comfort and safety of your home.
When You Come to an Appointment
We ask that you wear a facemask when you arrive.
Before coming in the office, you'll call registration and answer a few screening questions.
Please come into your appointment alone.
Exceptions can be made for parents of pediatric patients or
individuals who need assistance with communications or mobility, but overall,
we are limiting the number of people in the office.
If you have symptoms, please call the office before coming in to receive special instructions.
With telehealth, many doctor's visits can be managed on your telephone, smartphone,
tablet or computer. You can talk with your provider just like you would in the office, but from the comfort of your home.
Appointments are available for new and existing patients. More information about telehealth is available.
Maintain Your Health
Living a healthy lifestyle and managing chronic medical conditions is particularly critical in this time of COVID-19.
Underlying health issues can make you more vulnerable to the virus and add challenges to recovery if you become infected.
Our providers can help you maintain your best possible health through annual wellness check-ups and follow-up visits.
Safety precautions are in place in our physician offices to encourage you to seek care when needed and not to delay or postpone appointments.
If You Get Sick and Suspect It Is COVID-19
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises:
mildly ill patients should be encouraged to stay
home and contact their healthcare provider by phone or the patient portal for guidance.
Patients who have severe symptoms, such as trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face should seek emergency care immediately.
Older patients and individuals who have underlying medical conditions or are immunocompromised should contact their physician early in the course of even mild illness
Protect Yourself And Others From COVID-19
The best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19
is to limit close proximity to other people and to follow infection prevention recommendations.
Keep a distance of at least six feet between yourself and other people .
Frequently wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap
and warm water or use hand sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol.
Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth.
Wear a facemask to cover your nose and mouth when you are in public
places where you may come into contact with other people.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a bent elbow or tissue and immediately dispose of the tissue.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
