As a precautionary measure, we are minimizing foot traffic in the reception area by rooming patients as quickly as possible. New patients are encouraged to complete their registration online using the link that is emailed or texted to you in advance of your appointment. Please have your insurance card(s), driver’s license and medication list ready for the receptionist when you arrive. If we are unable to place you immediately into an exam room, you will be given the option to wait in your vehicle and we will notify you when a room is available.
We are requesting that additional visitors be limited to one friend or family member per patient. Please leave children at home if possible.
We will continue to monitor the situation and alter our plans accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time.
