As our community continues to feel the increased impact of coronavirus, we feel it is important to let our patients know the measures we are taking to help keep our valued patients and staff safe and healthy. Please be assured that we are doing our part in taking care of the people we serve and are implementing certain protocols based on the recommendations of the CDC.
We have always held cleanliness and sanitation to a high standard within our clinic. As a precaution, we have implemented a more stringent process of cleaning and disinfecting in order to maintain a healthy environment.
We have removed magazines, reading materials, toys, and other objects that may be touched by others that cannot be easily disinfected. We have implemented a sanitizing station in the lobby for all patients and incoming personnel to disinfect their hands before heading back to the treatment area.
All of our staff are equipped with FDA regulated surgical masks, eye protection and gloves for both staff and patient protection. All of our instruments are sterilized to hospital-grade standards.
Birex wipes are used to disinfect the operation rooms after each patient’s appointment. Birex wipes can sanitize and disinfect surfaces in just 10 seconds and are used in every room of the practice. Our patient chairs have a removable plastic lining for easy cleaning and disinfecting.
Each operating room also has a cleaning station equipped with sink, anti-bacterial soap, Birex wipes, and hand sanitizer.
We will be adjusting the way we schedule appointments in order to minimize crowding in the waiting room. This will help limit your time to be around other people and avoid contact with other patients.
As a precaution, we ask that you avoid bringing additional guests who are not receiving treatment to your appointment. This will help decrease any risk and minimize contact.
If you are sick or simply not feeling well, please stay home. You can call our office and we will happily reschedule your appointment for a later date.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation. It is our top priority to maintain the highest level of care for our patients and keeping you safe. while maintaining our focus where it belongs: Our Valued Patients.
