COVID-19

Limit your exposure. Call your doctor.

The doctor’s office is a place where you might encounter many sick people. While we will be doing our best to clean surfaces and limit exposure to patients, the best thing you can do for your own health is to not come in. Call your doctor and see about switching your appointment to a phone visit. If they need a sample or physical exam to help you, they can sort out a safe time for you to come in.
