CORONAVIRUS UPDATES: While telehealth appointments are still available, we are also open for in-person visits. Our practice is taking steps to make certain you are safe when visiting our offices:
  • All providers, staff, patients and visitors are required to wear masks and will have their temperature taken when entering the office.
  • We are making every effort to minimize your contact with other patients.
  • Waiting rooms will be configured to keep people apart and will limit the number of people waiting.
  • Offices will have plenty of PPE for everyone.
  • You will not need to wait in an environment crowded with people – you may wait in your car if you so choose.
  • You will be quickly escorted to an exam room upon your arrival to minimize contact with others.
