Thank you for your continued trust in our practice. As with the transmission of any communicable disease like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, at any time or in any place. Be assured that we continue to follow state and federal regulation as well as recommended universal personal protective equipment (PPE) and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases in our office.
Despite our careful attention to sterilization, disinfection and the use of personal barriers, there is still a chance that you could be exposed to an illness in our office, just as you might be exposed at your gym, grocery store or favorite restaurant. Nationwide social distancing has reduced the transmission of the coronavirus. Although we have taken measures to enable social distancing in our practice, due to the nature of the procedures we provide, it is not possible to maintain social distancing between the patient, healthcare team members and sometimes other patients at all times.
Policies in place in this office request that patients wear a mask until entering the treatment room. As always before treatment, wash your hands in the bathroom with soap and water. If you have had contact with an infected person, travelled outside of the US or domestically by plane, train or bus or presented with any symptoms of coronavirus including shortness of breath, fever, dry cough, sore throat, or loss of sense of smell or taste within the past 14 days please let your provider know so they they can help assist you in scheduling your appointment appropriately.
