Reopening with Precautionary Measures

We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. Indeed, our community has been through a lot over the last few months and many things have changed. However, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety as well as my staff’s.

As of June 1st, 2020, we will be taking in-office appointments but with a limited schedule to be extra-cautious. We will start from patients who need procedures in the office and urgent, trauma patients. We will be limiting our daily appointments so we can accommodate one patient at a time and will have more time for cleaning between. 

We will continue to offer Telehealth for those who do not feel comfortable to come in or do not need to be seen in person. We will start slowly to ensure everyone’s safety in the month of June.

Before your appointment, we will be sending more detailed protocols: Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. We are requesting all patients to wear a face mask or any face covering to come into our office building.  We will measure your temperature with a non-contact thermometer, ask you to clean your hands with alcohol sanitizer, and clean your shoes before entering our office.  You will be immediately escorted into a well-ventilated exam room. Until further notice, we kindly ask you to avoid bringing any companion except a minor patient. I know it is not easy to get used to this new ‘normal’ but I expect my kindest patients I know will be able to cooperate to protect each other. And let’s help reduce the risk of our hospital healthcare workers and their families.

Thank you so much for your patience and I look forward to welcoming you back gradually.
