It is important that if you’re currently experiencing any of the following symptoms (Fevers, shortness of breath, flu like symptoms), that you call ahead of your visit to the office and communicate any travel history or coming in contact with anyone who may have tested positive for COVID-19 and symptoms prior to arriving. This will enable the provider to determine which setting is best for you to receive care in. We are working diligently and finding different ways to ensure that we are taking all the proper precaution during this time.
