As our patient, your wellbeing is our highest priority. We have been closely monitoring the respiratory illness caused by a new Coronavirus (COVID-19), and we would like to provide resources to help you take care of your health and protect others. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website for the most up to date information regarding this evolving situation, how to reduce the risk of spreading illness, travel health notices, and more.

If you are experiencing mild cold or flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, runny nose, and cough, please remain home and consider calling our office to either schedule a virtual visit with one of our providers or speak to one of our staff to evaluate your symptoms and discuss next steps, including scheduling an office visit if it is deemed necessary.
If you are experiencing more severe flu-like symptoms such as high fever (>101 degrees) in addition to symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath), and/or have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread, please call our office to either set up a virtual visit or speak to a member of our staff to discuss next steps.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 testing is not currently available in an outpatient setting. Therefore, we are not equipped at this time to test for COVID-19 in our office, however, we have resources in the community which we can direct you to if testing is needed.
To protect yourself and others, please continue to use best hygiene practices including regular and thorough handwashing, covering your face when you cough and sneeze, and staying home if you are feeling ill.
We will continue to update our website as information and protocols change. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.
Best of health,
