ALL CLINICS

If you have an upcoming appointment and have not received instructions from your clinics or via your appointment reminder, call your clinic before coming for an appointment.

 

For the safety of our patients and staff:

● We are screening temperatures of everyone before they enter our clinics. You may be asked additional questions about your travel history and potential exposure to COVID-19.

● We have limited entrance to our building to a single entrance, this is the main door of each clinic building.

● We are limiting visitors accompanying patients to one, unless the patient is a minor or requires special assistance.

● Many of our appointments are transitioning to a virtual visit in order for us to continue to provide care without requiring a visit to a physical location. Your clinic will assess your upcoming appointment and contact you if your appointment will change.
