COVID 19 update
As we near Memorial Day, let us remember those who faced certain death to defend our freedoms.
This virus will likely be with us for a long time, and we will have to learn to live our normal lives despite it, to care for the ill, to use common sense and to move past fear and reclaim our way of life.
We know a lot more than we did last January. The hospitals were not overwhelmed and testing is more available. This appears to be milder on children than influenza, many people who are infected are asymptomatic, and some will have a respiratory syndrome that does not require hospitalization. The tip of the pyramid may be very ill, especially if elderly, frail, or with underlying conditions. The health of all my patients is important, and we are back to usual health screening visits and care.
We are following CDC guidelines and ask that you educate yourselves at
Office hours are returning to normal, although with fewer spots to allow for distancing and sanitizing. Telemedicine visits are also available. Office phones are on Monday thru Thursday for you, and the answering service is on after hours.
Dr. Smith is always available by calling the office or the answering service.
Prior to your office visit:
We ask that, on the day of the visit, patients coming to the office check their own temperature and empty bladder at home just prior to leaving for office. Please bring forms, ID, insurance card, and payment with you.
Phone pre screening will occur. In the interval before your visit, if you develop fever, new respiratory symptoms such as cough, diarrhea, sore throat, muscle aches, new loss of sense of taste/smell, or have unprotected close exposure to a known positive COVID 19 person in last 14 days, please contact the office by phone BEFORE entering the office.
Patients are asked to come alone, we can Facetime in your significant others to participate in visits remotely if you wish.
Please wear a mask or face covering.
Upon arrival in the parking lot, please phone the office so that we can invite you in directly to an exam room and practice distancing. We are spacing visits and taking every precaution for patient and staff safety.
