Preparing for your appointment

Preparing and arriving for your in-office visit

  • Symptoms: Call our office immediately if you develop any of the following symptoms prior to your visit: fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, sore throat, runny nose, muscle pain/aches, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell.
  • Masks: Due to the ongoing public health emergency, all patients visiting our practices are required to wear a cloth face mask. Masks with valves, bandanas, and neck gaiters are not permitted
  • Visitors: In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and other seasonal viruses, we would ask that patients refrain from bringing visitors to their appointments. Should you require a support person, they should remain in their vehicle for the duration of your visit. If you feel that it's essential to have a support person accompany you to your appointment, please call your provider's office to make those arrangements in advance.
  • Screening: When you arrive to the office, you will be greeted by a member of our team, who will ask you a few questions and take your temperature. Once in the practice, please be mindful of social distancing and directional signage.
