All patients entering the facility must be able to answer No to all of the following questions each time you come. **
- Have you returned from a visit to China, Japan, Iran, South Korea, or Italy – or traveled to New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Illinois, Michigan, California, or Washington State after Jan 1, 2020?
- Have you been in contact with a person who has tested positive to COVID-19 or has returned from one of the above countries or states in the past 14 days who also exhibits respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing)?
- In the past 14 days have you had a fever of 100 F or higher, cough, shortness of breath and/or a new loss of sense of taste or smell, headaches, body aches, chills, sore throat?
- Have you been exposed (in prolonged close proximity without personal protective equipment) to anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms in the past 14 days?
**At this time, if you answer yes to any of the above questions I require that you stay at home and contact me through the Portal so that we can discuss your answers further and see if there is anything I can do to help. (I will never charge a late cancellation fee for an appointment missed due to a “yes” answer to one of these questions.)
Please remember, these measures are in place for everyone’s protection. In order for me to provide treatment at this time I must do everything in my power to ensure that the clinical space is a safe, infection free zone. I am unable to care for those with active respiratory infections of any kind at the clinic. If you have answered Yes to any of the above questions and you want to schedule a Telehealth visit I can work with you virtually to come up with treatment options and a plan of care. If you are acutely ill and are concerned for yourself please contact your PCP to determine the best course of action.
I want to help you stay well for the remainder of this spring and into the summer and beyond. If you are struggling with your physical and/or emotional well-being during this time I am here to be of service and help keep you away from the hospitals while they manage the front lines of this illness.
