We take the infectious risks seriously that have become so prominent in light of the spreading COVID-19 virus. The office setting provides a smaller, more controlled environment in which patients can receive care as compared to a larger hospital facility. We feel strongly that we can continue to help the

community and our hospital systems by staying open and available at this time. To limit the risk of exposure to our staff and patients we have taken the following precautions:

1. Hard surface wipe down 3 times daily (counter tops, door handles, common surfaces, etc)

2. All staff wear masks and gloves when interacting with patients

3. Abundant availability of hand sanitizer

4. All patients are screened upon entry to the office (see questions above)

5. Limiting unnecessary traffic by asking patients to limit their number of guests to 1 additional person

6. Frequent hand washing by all staff and providers

7. In certain cases, patients prefer to wait outside until they are ready to be brought back to the exam room

8. We offer a telemedicine option

9. We have waived any penalty for missed or rescheduled appointments
