In light of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking extra precautions to
ensure that our patients remain safe and healthy during visits to our office. We also want to
keep our staff and providers healthy, so that we can continue to care for our patients.
If you or a household member (spouse, child, live-in relative, etc) is experiencing fever, or other
cold/flu-like symptoms, if you have been exposed to someone with these symptoms, please do NOT come to the office. Instead, please call us and we can guide you through recommendations and rescheduling.
***With the slight lifting of restrictions on businesses starting on April 27th, we have made additional changes in our practice. We are by no means back to normal, but we are starting to slowly allow more patients back into the offices. We are beginning to see well-woman exams again; however, if you do not want to come in at this time, please call us and let us know so that we can reschedule your appointment for a later date. We will continue to have telehealth as an option for appointments if you have medical questions/concerns that need to be addressed, but prefer to avoid coming into the office.***
Please note, we should still continue to see all of our obstetrical patients for their routine,
For those patients who will be coming into the office, please read the following:
Please wear a mask when you come in for any appointment, especially ultrasound appointments. We do not have enough to give out, so please wear one from home.
We are not allowing any visitors to your appointments at this time. This does, unfortunately, include spouses or significant others and during all ultrasound appointments. This restriction is subject to change in the future, but for now, we must implement this procedure.
We are limiting our waiting room to 8-10 people. If we see that the waiting room is getting too full, then we will ask you to wait in your car or outside the office and we will call you up when room is available for you.
We are checking temperatures on all patients that come into the office and if yours is elevated, we will ask you to reschedule.
We ask that you call to set up any future appointments after you are seen in the office.
For those patients that will be going to the hospitals for surgery, labor and delivery, or
postpartum care, know that ALL the hospitals are enacting mitigation techniques to reduce the
spread of this virus.
There will be only one or two entry sites at all hospitals, usually the main entrance and the Emergency Room.
Everyone will be screened upon entering the hospital for symptoms of the virus
Patients are only allowed to have one visitor, they will be screened upon entry into the
hospital as well.
