As always, we are using universal infection control procedures, but you will notice a few additions which will enable us to keep you and our staff safe. When you arrive, your temperature will be taken. We will also do an oxygen saturation check with a finger pulse oximeter as well as a health screening. We want to avoid having anyone with symptoms in the office, so if you have any suspicious symptoms, we will reschedule your appointment. Our staff does these checks on arrival each day as well to ensure their health. Be sure to use good etiquette if you have to cough or sneeze and wash your hands.
At this time, please wear a mask into our office. We have increased the frequency with which we clean surfaces in the restrooms, treatment rooms, etc. We also sterilize our blood pressure cuffs with UV light. This is an area that is often overlooked in other professional offices. We use Ozonated water in all our systems, which kills viruses and bacteria in the water sprays. We are ever-mindful of the safety of our patients and staff.
If you need to bring someone with you to your appointment, they will follow the same protocols to ensure no one who is ill comes into the office. If you would feel more comfortable, they may wait in your car. When you arrive, you may call and let us know you are here, and you can wait in your vehicle until we are ready to see you.

If you choose, you can wait in our reception room. It is large enough for proper social distancing, and we will not schedule so as to have too many people in the office at one time.
