Additional Clinic Safety Measures
Along with the screening at our front desks, we have also “remodeled” our lobby areas to promote social distancing. You will notice the number of chairs has been reduced and, in most cases, you may be brought back to an exam room immediately.
For adult patient visits: Individuals ages 18 and older may bring one adult to accompany them to their appointment. We ask that no minors and/or additional guests are invited to follow proper social distancing protocols in our clinic areas.
For pediatric patient visits: For appointments involving children (under 18 years of age), the pediatric patient may be accompanied by two parents/guardians. No siblings are permitted. We ask for your patience and understanding while we continue to monitor statewide COVID-19 cases. Our mission is to protect patients, employees, and visitors while providing a high level of care during this public health crisis.
