What to expect during the COVID-19 Pandemic:
We are a health care provider. The health of you, our patients, our communities, and our staff is our primary concern.
Health Screening for Patients and Staff
- Front door is locked at all times to discourage walk-ins and unauthorized entry.
- Patients and staff are required to fill out a COVID-19 Screening Form. If you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to our office at this time. Those who are flagged by screening will be asked to reschedule. Staff are also told to not come to work if they do not pass the COVID-19 screening form or to leave work if symptoms arise during the day.
- Hand Washing Station or Hand Sanitizer will be used upon entry by patients and staff. We will also take a non-contact temperature and a pulse oximeter to check oxygen levels.
