Dear Patients, Visitors, Family & Friends,
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated healthcare professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and HyperHEPA filtration technology throughout our office. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We are asking all patients enter the office with a mask, you will be able to remove the mask once you are in the designated patient room. Patients requiring sedation may have one escort with them to drive them home after surgery. This person may wait in their car during the procedure. We will call their cell phone once the patient is ready for discharge. In the case of minors or elderly, one parent, guardian or family member may come into the consult room with the patient. We have very limited seating in our waiting room and will allow patients and one family member to use this seating if available. Please wear a mask at all times while in the waiting room.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you. 501-623-4485
