will be taken to keep staff and patients in our office safe:
1) We have revamped our patient care schedule to limit the amount of patients in the office at one time. This includes only having 2 doctors seeing patients and extending out exam time slots..
2) Please limit family to only members that are essential to the appointments..
3) All doctors and staff members will be wearing protective face
coverings during patient care.
4) During the confirmation of appointments a screening questionnaire
related to COVID 19 will be given and if any related symptoms, we will
need to reschedule. Furthermore, if any symptoms are shown in office by
the patient or family member, we will also need to reschedule.
5) At check-in, every patient will need to use hand sanitizer.
6) Every patient will be assigned a specific chair in the reception area
by the front desk, so that immediately following the patient being taken
back for pre-testing, the staff will sterilize and rotate the waiting
7) All patients will be expected to wash their hands before any
preliminary-testing begins. Afterwards, their temperature will be taken
via a new non-contact infrared thermometer. If higher than normal, we
will need to reschedule.
8) In addition, the temperature of each staff member and doctor will be taken at the beginning of each day and if higher than normal, that staff member or doctor will need to go home.
** We have also purchased multiple
UV sterilizers. One for each exam room to further sterilize at the end
of the day. We also have one in the optical, where we sanitize every
frame a patient tries on. Furthermore, we sterilize all of our masks at
the end of the day..
Please know that as always we are here to help you!
If you need special assistance or have questions about your specific situation please feel free to call us. We
are doing everything possible to help our patients with any and all needs!
