Are you wondering if it's safe to schedule that GYN exam you've been putting off? During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, many people have concerns about visiting healthcare facilities. You can safely visit your doctor during the pandemic by simply following CDC guidelines. Here are the COVID-19 safety measures that we have implemented in our office for your protection. Be assured that your safety is our top priority.
FOR YOUR SAFETY WE REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING:
Wear a mask. Every patient & guest visiting our office is required to bring their own mask or face-covering and wear it for the duration for the visit.
Show up on time. Arrive at our office at your appointment time. If you arrive early, wait in your vehicle. We need to stay on schedule in order to adhere to social distancing. You do not have to call us when you arrive. We simply ask that you enter the office at your appointment time. You will not be seen if you arrive late.
Come alone to your appointment. We are limiting the number of people in our office at any given time. Family members/guests will not be allowed to wait in our reception area. Patients under the age of 18 may be accompanied by one parent/guardian.
Sanitize your hands. Please clean your hands upon entering our office. Use your own hand sanitizer or use our supply which is located at the check-in window.
Do not wear gloves in our office Wearing the same set of gloves all over town does nothing but spread germs everywhere you go. You are not protecting yourself, you are instead potentially spreading viral particles.
Reschedule your appointment if you are sick. Cancel your appointment if you are experiencing fever, chills, runny nose, sore throat, body aches or shortness of breath. Reschedule your appointment if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or traveled to a high risk area in the two weeks prior to your appointment.
Dispose of all food & beverages before entering our office. Your visit with us is unlikely to exceed thirty minutes. Foods & snacks should be left in your vehicle.
If you are sick or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, please stay home. If you still wish to be seen, your visit can be done via Telemedicine or rescheduled to a later date.
