We understand that you may be concerned about coming into the clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want you to know what steps we are taking to keep our patients and staff safe.
Only patients with appointments may enter the office. No one else may accompany the patient inside unless they are a necessary assistant to a disabled patient, accompanying a patient who is a minor or an infant with a nursing mother.
Upon arrival to your appointment, please call us from the parking lot to let us know that you are waiting in your vehicle. Please wait patiently until we call you to come up to the clinic.
Before entering the building, all patients (and accompanying guest) must wear a mask or face covering. Upon entering the office, you will be asked to use the hand sanitizer, will be asked several questions about your general health, have your temperature checked by non-contact thermometer, and asked about the reasons for your visit.
