Appointment Guidelines

Your health and safety, and that of our staff, is our highest priority. We are continually monitoring COVID-19 and responding with plans and procedures based on national and local guidelines. This includes elevating our already high standards of sanitation, cleaning, and employee hygiene.

To help us protect you and our staff, please see the updated appointment guidelines.

Masks/Face Coverings Still Required In Building

To ensure the continued safety of our patients and team, we will continue to require masks or face coverings to be worn in our office regardless of the state-wide mask mandate change to advisory.

Many of our team, including our providers, have received the COVID-19 vaccine and will continue to take the necessary precautions and preventative measures to keep everyone safe. Even if you have had your vaccine, all patients and team members are required to wear a mask or face covering in the building. We truly appreciate your willingness to protect yourself and others.
