COVID-19 Update


We are here for you with safe, compassionate care.


Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, their families, and our employees. We have made changes to our office procedures. Here are the specific measures we have implemented at our office to keep you safe:

  • Requiring face coverings for all patients and staff
  • Screening all patients and staff for signs of COVID-19 symptoms, before entering the facility
  • Adapting our waiting rooms to keep patients at least 6 feet apart
  • Staggering appointments to limit interactions and the number of people in the building
  • Cleaning and sanitizing all common areas and patient rooms multiple times per day and in between patients


Because of the changes we have implemented, we ask that you arrive early to your appointment to allow time for parking, screening, and check-in. Additionally, if you do not have your own face-covering please let us know before entering the building. We have a limited number of face coverings to give to those who do not have one. Please bring your own if you can.


Our office does not provide testing for COVID.
In order to help us protect you, our staff, and other patients, any person meeting the following criteria will be asked to reschedule or change your appointment to a telehealth visit:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • New-onset loss of taste or smell
  • A positive COVID-19 test
