COVID-19 Update

We’re back in the office seeing patients but on a slightly modified basis.

Please call for an appointment—we cannot accommodate walk-ins as we are staggering appointments and procedures.

Changes to Keep You Safe

Some of the changes around the office due to COVID 19:

  • We are seeing fewer patients at a time to respect social distancing.
  • We are screening all our patients, taking temperatures, and requiring hand sanitizer before each appointment.
  • We are limiting the number of family members in the office.
  • We are scheduling specific appointments at special times to minimize the risk of transmission.
  • We are using more Personal Protective Equipment - so we'll look different!
  • We have N95 masks and disposable gowns along with goggles and face shields. In addition to the surgical masks and gloves that we've always worn.
  • We are using different cleaning wipes that are proven effective against COVID 19 but take a little longer to work - so turnover between patients is a little slower.
  • We have disposable barriers to protect surfaces that are hard to wipe down.
  • We are using UV lights and a HEPA filter to clean parts of the office and our equipment.
  • We've removed all the "touchable" things - magazines, stickers, LEGOs. 

If you have any questions about our policies regarding safety and COVID 19, please let us know. We're working hard to keep everyone safe and healthy!
