In an effort to protect our patients and staff, we are conducting routine screenings of patients for illnesses. The screenings will occur during scheduling, pre-registration and upon entering the building. In addition, we are asking any patient with a fever to reschedule their appointment until they have been without fever for 24 hours (without the use of fever-controlling medications).
No visitors are allowed. One caregiver, age 16 or older, is allowed if patients need physical or cognitive assistance. If you have any questions, please call your nurse.
