How We're Keeping You Safe
We wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the precautions and policies our office will be following regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.
We are already held to very strict infection control procedures and we operate in a clean environment, but we are taking extra precautions at this time and continually reviewing the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) guidelines so we are doing our part to keep our patients and employees safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
You may see changes when it is time for your next appointment:
We will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions and you will be asked those same questions when you arrive for your appointment.
We will be taking your temperature when you arrive at the office.
We are staggering appointment times to allow for social distancing in the waiting room and common areas and regularly disinfecting common areas such as the front desk and reception area and all exam rooms in between patients.
We ask that you wear a mask or facial covering to your appointment. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you upon your arrival. We are also asking that you refrain from bringing guests or companions with you to your appointment unless you require special assistance.
Please know that we are closely following the situation and please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns at 615-321-8881
