Slowly Resuming In-Office Appointments
Starting the week of May 4, we will be slowly resuming seeing preventative healthcare visits and non-urgent problem visits in addition to all obstetrical and urgent visits.In order to continue to protect our patients, staff, and physicians, we will continue our recent safety measures. This includes temperature screening upon arrival and a limited schedule to allow for adequate social distancing and reduced wait times.
All staff and physicians will be wearing face masks at all times in the office, and we ask that our patients wear masks in our office as well.
We will continue to restrict visitors accompanying patients until we feel it safe to resume normal operations.
We plan to continue to offer telemedicine visits to all of our OBGYN patients during this time as appropriate.
Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility during this difficult time.
