In response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have taken measures for the safety of our patients and staff.
- We are now offering telemedicine appointments and ask that you consider scheduling a telemedicine visit with one of our providers unless a visit to our office is absolutely necessary for your care.
- We ask that if you come to our office for an appointment that you bring an additional visitor with you only when an adult caregiver is necessary for support or a parent or legal guardian is required for a minor.

We would like you to reschedule your in-office appointment if:

  1. You develop symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever)
  2. You have returned from a country under a level 3 Health Notice within the last 14 days.
  3. You have been exposed to someone suspected to have or confirmed to have an infection with COVID-19 virus.
If you have an urgent medical issue and you are in one of the above categories, please contact our office to discuss your issue prior to coming to the office.
We are dedicated to our patients and will continue to make any necessary changes to our policies and procedures to continue offering the highest level of care.
