Important Information Regarding COVID-19

As of June 8th, we have returned to full operation with adjusted entry and sterilization standards.

1. URGENT CARE: The doctor on call can be reached at (857) 318-9244. We are here for you, to help you, whether you are new to our office or a regular patient. 

2. COVID ADJUSTED PATIENT ENTRY PROTOCOL:   Please delay your appointment  if, within the last 14 days, you have traveled overseas or from any of the USA “hotspots”, currently California, Texas and Arizona. Also, within the last 14 days, if you have had any cough/cold/fever symptoms, or exposure to someone with these symptoms,  please delay your appointment. 

Upon entering, a forehead thermometer will read a patient’s  temperature. If immediate seating is not possible, the patient will wait in their car.  Treatment takes place in a filter controlled operatory which is fogged between patients. We add 15 minutes to each and every appointment for proper between-patient sterilization. 

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.

We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at (617) 924-7301.
