Dear Patients,

Our office is closely monitoring the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. We intend to take all precautionary measures necessary to reduce the spread of illness. We are strictly following the guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and the Alabama department of Public Health.

The measures we are taking to reduce the spread of illness in our practice include, but not limited to:

  • Frequent hand washing.
  • Making hand sanitizer available to patients and visitors.
  • Sanitizing frequently touched surfaces such as (chairs, doorknobs, etc.).
  • Cleaning exam rooms immediately prior to admitting patients.
  • Screening all incoming patients and visitors for signs of respiratory illness.
  • Closely monitoring our staff for any signs of respiratory illness.
  • Politely rescheduling appointments for any patients experiencing any respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, cough, fever, difficulty breathing, or runny nose.

We ask that you our valued patients do everything you can to protect yourselves, your fellow patients and our staff.

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms such as sneezing, cough, fever or trouble breathing. If you come to your appointment and appear ill or exhibit any of the above symptoms, we will ask you to go home and to reschedule your appointment.
