Pre Appointment Instructions for Patients

We are pleased to provide you with appointments during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our team has been working hard to educate ourselves on new infection control guidelines as mandated by the CDC. We have put an enormous amount of consideration into implementation of our new protocols while, as always, maintaining strict adherence to previous infection control measures.

Under the new protocols, patients play an active role in infection prevention. The following information will help you understand what to expect when you arrive at our office and also to outline what actions we need you to take to make our environment safe for yourselves, our team and the community at large.

In-Office Visits

  • All clinical staff will be wearing masks at all times.

  • Upon your arrival, you will see a nurse by the door. Please let her know you have arrived.

  • The nurse will ask you covid screening questionnaire to ensure precautions are being taken based on your answers.
