Dear Patient of FOWH,

We have resumed normal office hours, 8:30 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. We are seeing all ob/gyn patients for routine well-woman exams, routine prenatal care and any ob/gyn problems where you need our help.

  1. No visitors inside the office (for exceptions, such as limited mobility, please let us know ahead of time). You may FaceTime or audio connect a guest during your medical exams as you wish.
  2. Prior to your appt., all patients should have received a text message requesting them to wait in their car after arrival. A second text will be sent when we are ready for you to come to the office.
  3. Once you come to the office, everyone must use our main entrance. This applies to all FOWH patients and Pasadena Pellet patients.
  4. Temp screening takes place. Anyone with temp above 37.8 or symptoms of possible COVID-19 will have to wait outside until a provider can assess the situation.
  5. All patients (and staff) must wear a mask at all times while in the office. Please bring your own, our supplies are limited.
  6. Hand sanitizer will be offered at the front door to all patients.
  7. The waiting room and Primex lab will be closed from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.
  8. Sneeze guards have been placed at the check-in and check-out desks. Please try to remain behind them as you talk to the staff.

Thank you for you understanding and cooperation.
FOWH Resumes Pap Smear Testing
To help limit the number of people in our waiting room, we have a new procedure using text messaging to communicate to you when we are ready for you to check-in for your appointment. Click here to read about our new Text Messaging Appointment Notification process or see below.
The day before your appt. you will receive this text message. When you arrive for your appt. and park, reply to the text with the word "ARRIVED".
For a Monday appt. this text message will be sent the Friday before. When you arrive for your appt. and park, reply to the text with the word "ARRIVED".
We will send you this final text which asks you to wait in your car (or nearby the office). When we send "READY", please make
your way to the office.
PLEASE REMAIN VIGILANT - the virus is still out there
As "society" starts to open up again, the chances for exposure to the virus will increase. Wearing masks when near others is still one of the most useful precautions you can take to help protect others in case you are an asymptomatic carrier of the virus, and also to protect you from exposure as well. Wash your hands often; avoid touching your face, nose or eyes; do not share food, cups or utensils; avoid hand-shaking; and get tested promptly if you develop any viral symptoms such as sore throat, fatigue, cough, or low-grade fever. Here is our article about testing for the virus.
