Below are updates to our Coronavirus policy and procedure:
April 18th, 2020
To accommodate current guidelines, we have cut back the number of patients we are seeing in a day to promote social distancing within the office. We continue to aggressively clean and sanitize our office, as protecting our patients and staff is our primary concern. All staff members are required to wear gloves as well as masks. If you are uncomfortable waiting to be seen in our waiting room, you may call the office to notify us that you have arrived and we will call you when it is time for you to be seen by the doctor.
Please don't hesitate to contact office staff if you have any questions or concerns regarding anything related to COVID-19. We will do our best to assist you in any way during these difficult times!

In light of the extraordinary circumstances due to the Coronavirus outbreak in our region, we want to address any fears or concerns that you may have. It is most important to note that we are employing proactive measures to contain and/or prevent transmissions of COVID-19 by aggressively disinfecting all surfaces in the office as well as practicing safe hygiene.
If you are sick or have been sick, have a fever over 100 degrees, or if you have recently travelled outside of the United States, we ask that you please contact the office to reschedule your appointment to a later date. This is the best way to protect our patients and staff. Symptoms for COVID-19 include fever, cough and shortness of breath, and may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
We recommend that everyone follow safe hygiene practices to stay healthy and prevent illness. These steps include but are not limited to: frequent hand washing; refraining from touching the eyes, nose and mouth; coughing and sneezing into the elbow or tissues; and staying home if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick.
If you have questions regarding COVID19, the Center for Disease Control and Mass.gov both have in-depth information on their websites and are updated frequently.
