As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff.

Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Please inform our office if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or exposed to someone who has been, to ensure we follow the accepted protocols outlined by the Centers for Disease Control.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
