We are continuing to see patients as usual. Please call first if you are sick with a fever or cough, have congestion or are experiencing shortness of breath, and we will decide with you over the phone what you will need to do.
Gynecology patients who are sick should see their primary doctor, while obstetrics patients can come to us or go to their primary doctor. If you are sick and need to be seen, you will be asked to wait in your car, not the waiting room. You will we instructed to use the back entrance and you will be seen in the room next to the entrance to prevent the spread of infection.
Keep in mind we are still in the flu season and the vaccine for the flu is highly recommended, if you have not done so yet. Continue to use preventive measures like hand-washing with soap and water for 20 seconds and coughing into a tissue or elbow. Use hand sanitizer if you are not able to your wash hands. We are also being diligent in our office to keep our area as clean as possible. We are cleaning all surfaces in the exam rooms between patients for their protection.
Finally, we are asking our staff to stay home if they are sick. So if we are short-staffed, or visits have to be rescheduled, please be understanding.
