Patient and Staff Safety
All of our decisions are led by considering the safety of our patients and staff first.
We are taking extra precautions, including:
- Rigorously cleaning and disinfecting after each patient, in accordance with infection control guidelines.
- Requiring masks or surgical masks for all staff, patients and visitors (accompanying visitors will only allowed when a patient needs assistance, and will also be screened as detailed below)
- Restricting access to waiting rooms and patient care areas so that they are only occupied when absolutely necessary.
- Initiating new processes such as arrival check-in by phone, “outside the offices” pre-appointment health screening per CDC guidelines, and having patients wait in their vehicles until they are called to enter after they’ve cleared screening. (Click here for details on the procedures you must follow when you arrive for an appointment)
We will continue to update our procedures as deemed appropriate – and any changes will be detailed on this page when they occur.
In-Person Office Visits & Surgery Center Appointments

- In most cases, you will not be allowed to bring anyone else into the building with you to your appointment. If you need assistance, you may bring someone with you, but they need a face mask or surgical mask too – and they will be screened in the same manner that you will be.
