Covid-19 Information

I am seeing patients in my office for consultations on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

My staff and I are vaccinated against Covid-19, including boosters, to protect you and all of us. 
We continue with all measures to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, including mask use.

Follow-up visits are being conducted either in-person or via telemedicine (video), as appropriate.

I recommend that all persons receive a Covid vaccine booster shot to protect against getting (or unwittingly spreading) Covid-19.

Information for Patients, Prior To Your Appointment

Please review this updated information, especially in light of the different symptoms associated with the Delta variant of Covid-19.

  • If you are a new patient, and you have received vaccination(s) for Covid-19, please email us with the type and exact date(s) of your shots.
  • If you are a returning patient, please email us with any updated information on your vaccination status, including booster shots.

When you are in our office you will be required to wear a cloth or paper face mask that covers your mouth and nose at all times, even if you are vaccinated.  Masks with an exhalation valve are not acceptable, as they do not protect others from Covid-19.  We will provide you with a paper mask, if you so request.

We are still screening all patients for Covid-19, even if you have been vaccinated, as "breakthrough" cases are a concern.    
Prior to your visit to our office, please answer these 4 questions:

  1. Do you have a fever?  If you are not sure, take your temperature with a thermometer before you leave for your appointment.  You have a fever if your temperature is higher than 99.5 F. 
  2. Do you have any of these symptoms of the Delta variant: headache, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, persistent cough?
  3. Do you have any of these symptoms of classic Covid-19: shortness of breath, fever, chills, shaking chills, muscle pain, new onset of loss of taste or smell? 
  4. In the last 10 days, has anyone in your household (or any person who you have been in close contact with) tested positive for Covid-19, or developed symptoms of Covid-19?

If the answer to ANY question is “yes” then you should not come in for your appointment.  
In such case, please contact us.
