COVID-19 UPDATE

Last Update 3/20/2020

As we navigate the challenges posed by the spread of COVID-19, we remain committed to supporting our patients to the best of our ability while prioritizing the health and safety of all patients and staff.


We encourage you to continue caring for your physical and mental health during this time while following the recommendations of public health officials, which includes refraining from non-essential activities outside of the home.


We are requiring all of our patients to engage in services by video or phone appointments, unless there is an essential reason the doctor would like to see you in person (For example, for a physical exam).  

We understand that Telehealth may not be ideal for all patients, and may allow in-person visits on a case-by-case basis.  If you'll visit our offices in person, we ask you to comply with the following:

  • If you are not feeling well, stay home and reschedule your appointment, or request a Telehealth session. Defer in-person appointments until you are symptom-free for 14 days.

  • If someone you live with, or someone you've had close contact with, is not feeling well, defer in-person visits for 14 days.

  • If you are awaiting results of COVID19 testing, or anticipate being tested, refrain from in-person visits until you receive a negative test result.

  • If you've recently travelled outside of the country or to an area with high infection rates within the last 30 days, defer your in-person appointment for 30 days.

  • If you've been informed that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or you've tested positive for COVID-19, after visiting our offices within the last 30 days, please inform us so that we may take the appropriate precautions.

  • Practice social distancing.  Do not engage in non-essential social gatherings.  Do not shake hands and when possible, avoid close contact with others.  Keep a minimum of 6 feet between yourself and others when possible.

  • Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds, preferably in the restrooms immediately before entering our offices.

  • Use the hand sanitizer available in our offices as needed.

  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow, and not your hands.

We appreciate your cooperation.  Please contact us if you have concerns or questions.  We are also happy to check your insurance eligibility for Telehealth appointments for you.
