The health and well-being of our patients and staff is our top priority. We always take measures to sanitize all patient contact surfaces and encourage hand washing and hand sanitizer, especially during cold and flu season. The new coronavirus currently spreading across the country is yet another reminder of the importance of these steps. We ask that if you or anyone planning to accompany you to your exam has any signs of illness, including a cough, fever, sinus drainage, sneezing or breathing difficulties, that you please call to reschedule. We see patients of every age and with varying levels of general health, so what might be a minor illness to you could be serious for someone else.
