COVID-19 Action Plan
Protecting Yourself and Those Around You at Your Appointment
Refrain from having extra guests with you unless medically necessary. All others should remain in their vehicle.
Bring a mask and wear it to your appointment. Prepare to have your temperature taken upon arrival.
Practice safe social distancing. Follow the "stand here" circles on the lobby floor by reception and space out seating in waiting area..
Pay with a credit or debit card. This is safer than cash or check, because you can swipe the card yourself.
What precautions are you taking to prevent the spread of illness?
- 10.13.20- Local hospital systems have asked our surgeons to identify cases that could safely be delayed up to 40 days. Your surgery may be reschedule, and our team will be in touch.

What can I do to help lessen the spread of illness for myself and other patients?
- Refrain from bringing additional guests to your appointment unless it is essential

- Reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing any sign of fever, cough or shortness of breath

Do you have Telehealth capabilities?
Yes! This is the safest way to have an appointment at this time. In order to lessen potential exposure for our patients, we have implemented a short term telemedicine solution using Facetime and Google Duo. (See more information in the “Telehealth” section below). Our staff will be contacting current patients individually and offering this option. The type of visit you will have will be determined by your technology capabilities.
We hope to have our longterm telehealth platform in place by the end of October 2020. Our goal is to make it faster and easier for our patients.
