This pandemic is something new to all of us, and the only way to get through it is to work together. While we are doing all that we can to make the office safe for all, there are a few small things you, the patient, can do to help us out.
If you are feeling feverish or experiencing any flu-like symptoms, we ask that you refrain from coming into the office. Instead, give us a call ahead of time and we will be more than happy to reschedule your appointment a few weeks out. Additionally, if you have traveled or been in contact with anyone who has traveled, please wait at least two weeks before coming into the office to make sure that you are not exhibiting any signs of COVID infection.
All California residents are recommended to wear masks when leaving the house regardless, and we would encourage the same when coming into the office. Now of course, we cannot work on you with the mask on, but you can at least wear it while checking in and when heading out. We also ask that after checking in, you wait in your car of outside until we call you to let you know we are ready for you.
Finally, please refrain from bringing too many family members with you too your appointment if they do not have an appointment themselves. We would like to reduce crowding in the office as much as possible to avoid patient-patient interaction.
As long as we all do our part and remain aware of our surroundings and effect on it, we will be able to continue slowing the spread of COVID-19 and hopefully return to life as normal!
