As part of our COVID-19 measures, we are practicing social distancing, wearing masks, continuously wiping down surfaces with disinfectants, and taking the temperature of everyone—including staff—before they enter the building. For the protection of our patients and staff, we have installed a medical shed to isolate patients showing any COVID-19 or upper respiratory infection symptoms. In addition, we are providing telehealth services via Skype, FaceTime, Google Duo, and phone (no video) for anyone who does not require an in-person examination. We can also take vital signs, provide prescriptions, and conduct simple examinations in the parking lot while patients remain in their cars. We are covered by most health insurance providers at this time.
