COVID-19

We would like to thank all of our patients for being so amenable to our office's changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


A few things you should know during this time:


  • The office hours remain Monday-Friday, 8:00a-5:00p.
  • We have resumed seeing a limited number of patients.
  • If you have an appointment and are ill or become ill before your appointment do not enter the building. Call the office to cancel.
  • If you have an appointment and you or have come in contact with anyone that has recently traveled to an area or country that has been highly-impacted by COVID-19 do not enter the building. Call the office to cancel.
  • If you appear ill at check-in your appointment will be cancelled.


We have always maintained a high standard of cleanliness and sanitation throughout our office. In addition, we have implemented the following measures to help fight against any further and unnecessary spread/exposure of/to this virus:


  • We are allowing only the patient and those providing medical or mobility assistance into the waiting room and exam rooms. All others will be asked to wait in their cars or return when the appointment is complete.
  • We have drastically limited our reception area and sub-waiting area seating - so you may be asked to wait in your car until you are ready to be seen.
  • We are asking patients to bring their own thermometer to their appointment. Temperatures will be checked upon arrival/check-in - this includes the patient and anyone that is accompanying the patient for medical or mobility assistance. If your temperature is above 99.5° we will NOT see you for your appointment and we will ask you to seek medical care with your PCP or urgent care.
  • We are requiring patients to wear a face mask or covering when they are in our office for an appointment. Please note: we do not have a sufficient supply to provide these for all patients.
  • Our staff is also required to wear face masks while in the office.
  • We have made hand sanitizer available at our check-in desk, reception area, exam rooms, and treatment areas.
  • We are increasing the cleaning frequency of counters, chairs, medical equipment, or other frequently touched surfaces.


We are staying appraised of any developing changes to adhere to local, state, and federal guidelines.
