Keeping Our Patients Safe During COVID-19
As our patient, your health is our top priority. We have taken several measures to keep you, our doctors, our staff and our community safe during these challenging times. The following will give you an idea of the safety measures we have implemented and what you can expect when you come in for your visit.
What to Expect at Your Visit
Prior to your appointment, our staff will call and ask you a series of questions to determine whether your appointment can proceed as planned.
To ensure that social distancing is possible in our waiting rooms when you arrive for your appointment, simply call our office from your car and our staff will check you in. A staff member will call you when we are ready for you to come inside.
Please come inside alone unless a support person is necessary for mobility or communication purposes. Every patient must have their temperature checked, oxygen levels recorded and wear an approved face covering.
We are also requiring the Optomap on all patients over 10 years of age. This $40 test will help the Doctor view the retina (back of the eye) while reducing the extremely close and vulnerable
face to face time during the exam.
For everyone’s health and safety, all of our staff are wearing protective equipment, including masks and gloves, washing their hands frequently and having their temperature checked.
To lower the risk of infection spreading in our community, we have intensified our cleaning procedures and are disinfecting exam rooms and equipment between patients and cleaning all other areas frequently throughout each day.
If you have any questions before your visit, please call our office and a member of our staff will be happy to speak with you.
