Enhanced Safety Measures

What to expect when you come in for your appointment! There is a lot of information here but please take the time to review each point.

We look forward to seeing our patients again, but we also understand that the threat from COVID-19 is not over. We remain deeply committed to keeping our facility safe for you and for our staff. To that end, we have a number of new protocols that you will encounter when you come in for your appointment:

Face Masks/Coverings

Face Masks/Coverings

A face mask or covering that covers both mouth and nose must be worn for the duration of the visit. The current CDC recommendation is for anyone over age 2 (maturity and health conditions permitting) to wear a face covering in all public spaces.

Please click here for more information about how to properly wear a face cover or mask.

You will see our Doctor and staff wearing face masks as well; they may also wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, goggles, and/or face shields.

Virtual Intake

Virtual Intake

You will receive online forms via text and/or email. You will be able to complete all of the required paperwork using your computer or mobile device.

We ask that you complete all forms prior to your scheduled appointment.

Virtual Check-In

Virtual Check-In

Please call us at from your vehicle when you arrive and wait in your car. A staff member will meet your at your car and escort you into the office.

The door to the office will remain locked even during business hours – this is to reduce “walk in” traffic and ensure we keep the number of people in the office at a minimum.

Number of Guests

Number of Guests

In order keep the number of people in the office at once to a minimum, we request:

Any minor only be accompanied by one parent/guardian; no additional family members.

Any adult who may have a friend/spouse/etc. along for their appointment ask them to wait outside, unless needed for mobility or translation.

Health Screening

Health Screening

Every person entering the office will receive a COVID-19 screening questionnaire and a touchless temperature check.

Anyone who has tested positive or been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and not been cleared by their health care provider may not enter the office.

Gloves

Gloves

We kindly request that you do not wear gloves in to the office. If you would like a pair to wear during your visit, we can provide them for you.

We will also have hand sanitizer and hand washing stations available for you to use as often as you like.

Social Distancing

Social Distancing

Please try to maintain a 6 foot distance between yourself and other people in the office.

Eyeglasses

Eyeglasses

All glasses and sunglasses are cleaned and UV sterilized before they are returned to the display.

If you wish to come in to browse glasses or to have your glasses repaired or adjusted, please schedule an appointment. When your glasses are ready for pickup, we will call you to schedule an appointment and will deliver them to you curbside.

Cleaning Protocols

Cleaning Protocols

“High touch” surfaces (door knobs, counters, etc.) will be cleaned hourly.

Each room will be cleaned and sanitized before each patient encounter.
