As the Coronavirus pandemic slows down and the Texas government begins to ease restrictions on businesses, we are working to get back to taking care of our patients. We are starting our clinics on 4/27/2020. There will be changes to continue protecting our patients, staff and the community and comply with social distancing.
Here it is what we are doing:
● We are asking our patients to reschedule their appointments if they have any respiratory symptoms, fever or have been in contact with somebody infected with covid19 in the last 14 days.
● We are asking our staff and any patient or visitor to the office to wear a mask while in the office.
● If possible, only patients are allowed to come into the office and family is being asked to wait in the car.
● Temperatures will be checked and patients will be rescheduled if temperature is more than 100.5
● Our staff is doing a thorough cleaning after each patient is seen.
● We are urging all employees to be vigilant about frequent hand
washing and sanitizing.
● Deep cleaning is being done to the entire office after hours with recommended sanitizing products.
● Staff members have been instructed to let administration know immediately if they have been exposed to the virus outside the practice or are having symptoms and if so will be asked to stay at home.
● We will be calling patients before the appointment to gather some of the information necessary for the visit to shorten the time of the visit.
● We have changed our schedule to maintain the minimum number of people in the waiting rooms and for the least amount of time.
● Our telemedicine portal is up and running to help patients that cannot come to the office.
● We will be stating surgical services next week. If your surgery has been cancelled, we will be calling you soon to schedule it again.
If you have an existing appointment, we look forward to seeing you and want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to promote a safe and secure environmental experience. Thank you for your support.
