Our office was designed with immunocompromised patients in mind. The safety and health of our patients and staff remain our top priority. For this reason, we continue to go above and beyond CDC and OSHA Infection Control policies and guidelines. Please review this information before visiting our office.

After each use, we disinfect office and treatment room furnishings including, but not limited to, door handles, light switches, counters, walls around treatment beds, treatment beds, desks, chairs, stools, floors, and other areas of patient contact.

  • Comprehensive consultations and evaluations are scheduled as telehealth visits.

  • Clear partitions are installed at reception and consultation desks.
