In an effort to continue providing care to our patients and keep them out of hospitals and emergency departments, our doctors are utilizing telemedicine visits, in addition to our regular in-office visits during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are interested, please call our office to arrange your visit. We continue to take steps to protect patients and our staff from exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes sanitizing examination rooms and surfaces throughout the offices as well as spacing our visits in order to comply with "social distancing". If you are experiencing an acute respiratory illness (fever over 100.4 degrees, cough, and shortness of breath) or have tested positive for coronavirus within the last 3 weeks, please call our office to reschedule your appointment after your symptoms subside. We are also asking that you come to your appointment alone, unless you require assistance.
