Your health is our top priority. During these times, please make sure to:
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Limit close contact with people who are sick
  • Get tested if you are feeling any symptoms associated with COVID-19.


Please note that we will continue to see patients on a limited scale. Our staff is continuing to thoroughly disinfect all patient areas, and we are also pre-screening patients with appointments during confirmation calls.

If you think you may not be feeling well, please call our office to cancel or reschedule your appointment, and notify your primary care doctor of your symptoms.

We will be in touch with any further updates as necessary.
