In the clinic

We require everyone in the office to properly wear a face mask (covering nose and mouth) at all times.

Please do not come into the office if you are infectious or probably infectious, especially with COVID or monkeypox.

If you are ill, please let us know at the time you schedule your appointment. We have a separate protocol to see you if you are sick.

We are also conducting televisits at this time. Please sign and return these forms: About Telemedicine. Consent for telemedicine..

Things everyone should do

  • Wear a mask. This is the #1 most effective way to prevent transmission. 

    • n95 grade or better is recommended.

    • Do not touch the outside of your mask. It is considered contaminated. There are many videos on proper mask wearing.

    • With mask wearing, most people forget to hydrate. Please remember to drink adequate amounts of fluids

  • Social distance.

  • Stay in well-ventilated environments. Invest in a HEPA air filter, which can help filter viral (and bacterial) particles.

  • Clean your hands and environment.

    • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer is ok to use if your hands are not soiled. Hand sanitizer should have >60% alcohol content to be effective. (Keep in mind that hand sanitizer is not adequate for norovirus).

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands.

    • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces (ie. doorknobs, computer keyboard, phone).

    • Put the lid on the toilet before you flush to prevent aerosolization of toilet bowl contents.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.  

  • Get plenty of rest.

  • Do not ignore any health concerns. Please call the office as you would normally for any problems that may arise.

  • Get a pulse oximeter for your home. Pulse oximeters measure your heart rate and oxygen saturation.
