If you have an upcoming appointment, please review our policies below:
· When you arrive, please come into the office to check in. We are enforcing social distancing by making sure available waiting room chairs are spaced 6 feet apart. If there are not enough open chairs in the waiting room, for your safety and the safety of others, we may ask you to go back to your car to wait and call you when we are ready for your appointment.
· All patients MUST wear a mask, per the statewide mask mandate, or you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.
· Only the patient is allowed in the office, except for obstetric ultrasounds. One partner ONLY may attend your initial visit ultrasound and 20 week anatomy ultrasound. We will have your partner return to their car after the ultrasound to wait while you have your exam with a provider. We apologize for this, but due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Franklin and Delaware Counties, we feel limiting the amount of people who come through the office is the safest and most cautious thing we can do to lower the risk of exposure to our especially high risk patients, those being pregnant patients and those over 60, as well as protecting our providers and staff so that they can be there for you.
· Telehealth Appointments: We will continue to offer Telehealth appointments for those who would prefer to stay at home. Also, patients over 60 or anyone with lung disease, heart failure, active cancers and diabetes, and have an appointment scheduled in the next month, please contact our office to decide if the appointment is essential or can be rescheduled as a Telehealth appointment.
If you are sick or exhibiting any symptoms that could be associated with the coronavirus we ask that you do not come to the office. Thank you all for being so patient and supportive of us through this ordeal. We are still in this together and brighter days are ahead!
