Our patients and staff's health and safety are our top priority. We ask any patients that are symptomatic or not feeling well to not show up to the clinic, please call and our staff will happily reschedule you. We have implemented screening measures at the front door to ensure everyone's safety. If you have a temperature of 100 degrees or more you will not be permitted into the clinic.

We are also requesting that you do not bring family members or friends with you to your appointment at this time. We are required to follow strict CDC guidelines and we cannot have crowded waiting rooms or exam rooms. Exceptions will only be made for minors, interpreters or if you require assistance walking. Everyone entering the clinic will be subject to screening and non-patients will be asked to wait in their cars.

We will be following strict CDC guidelines for patients considered "high risk" and making the appropriate decisions to ensure their safety is priority if they are considering surgery. Lastly, we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe by ramping up our already thorough cleaning process daily.

We understand this a stressful time of uncertainty, so we appreciate you allowing us to make every possible attempt to keep you and our staff healthy.


Bottom Line: If you're sick please stay home. Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment unless absolutely necessary. If you have questions or concerns for us we will happily address them via phone. We're all in this together and we will get through it together. We thank you for entrusting us with your care.
