Keeping you healthy with safety in mind!
Our latest update delivered to your mailbox.
We have always prioritized the safety of our patients, and in these uncertain times, this is no different. That’s why we are practicing and enforcing best practices for social distancing and safety in the midst of COVID-19.

As you know, safety recommendations — including those for our patients and staff — has been changing in accordance to the CDC and our state recommendations. You can count on us to keep up-to-date with the latest recommendations by the state and federal government. We will share this information with you on our website, social media and thru emails.

What to expect from us

  • All staff and patients will have their temperature taken when entering the building
  • Face masks are required for entering the facility
  • Daily sanitizing and disinfection of shared services frequently 

For all of our safety we require our patients to wear masks or facial coverings, wash/sanitize your hands before coming to the facility, and — most importantly — stay at home if you are feeling sick.

We are carefully monitoring the COVID statistics and recommendations in our area on a daily basis. The most important thing is to make sure we practice in a safe environment. If you have specific questions not addressed here or on our website, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Our patients have always been the heart of our practice. We’re grateful to you, your ongoing support, and that you’re doing your part to keep us all safe.
