Current Office Procedures as of February 2021
We are working diligently to provide a safe environment for all of our patients during the COVID 19 Pandemic
All patients may come in for live office visits provided they meet typcial screening criteria for COVID infection and exposure
We will still offer telehealth visits to any patients who are ill, exposed, or at risk.
In order to keep our waiting room clear, we will still be booking at less than capacity. We still ask that you call us prior to entering our office so that we may limit the number of persons in the room. Also please come alone unless you require assistance from a companion
For those patients who will be scheduled for in-ofice vists we will have new procedures in effect designed to create the safest environment possible, including:
- All patients and staff will be REQUIRED to wear a mask
- Patients will be booked one at a time and go into the exam room immediately with no time in the waiting room
- All information and any copay will be taken over the phone prior to the time of the visit
- further details will be expalined by staff when you call to make the appointment
Mon through Fri 9 am to 12 noon there will be someone receiving routine calls to assist you with future appointments and related questions. This staff person will be in touch with the doctors so that any clinical questions can be answered. Our answering service continues to field after hours emergency calls.
We are doing telehealth virtual visits several days per week to accomodate those in need. Virtual visits are covered by and billed to insurance during this crisis. To schedule a virtual visit you may do so by calling the office during the day or by emailing us your request at [email protected] Please indicate your name, date of birth and cell phone number in this email. We may ask for updated insurance information as well. The office will set up a mutually convenient time with you.
