Advanced COVID-19 Policy & Protocol

Updated May 18, 2021

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.

Patient Appointments & Information: 

  • Masks or face coverings are required before entering our office and for the duration of your appointment.

  • Please refrain from bringing visitors to our office. For medical exemptions, please call in advance of your scheduled appointment.

  • Temperature screening will be performed with a touchless thermometer at each visit. 

  • Please use hand sanitizers in our center.

  • Schedule availability has been adjusted to avoid patient-to-patient interaction. Please arrive 5 minutes in advance, but no earlier than 15 minutes prior, to your appointment.

  • Patients who exhibit any of the potential COVID-19 symptoms as defined by the CDC, regardless of vaccination status are asked to refrain from visiting our office.

Advanced Office Safety Procedures:

  • All staff are screened daily with temperature checks and equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment including gloves, face shields and masks.

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.

  • Medical grade air purifiers and Thermodynamic air sterilizers run 24/7 to capture and kill airborne microorganisms including viruses and bacteria as small as 0.1 microns.

  • Certified whole room UVC germicidal system is used for deep sanitization.

  • Schedule availability is limited to avoid patient-to-patient interactions.

  • Comprehensive consultations and evaluations are scheduled as telehealth visits.

  • Clear partitions are installed between front desk and reception areas.

  • All medical and linen supplies are single use.
