In light of recent developments with coronavirus (COVID-19) and our concern for the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have developed an alternative to in-person office visits. We remain dedicated to providing care for our patients during this time of unprecedented health concern for our community.

For patients coming to our office, we strongly recommend not to bring a companion in the room unless medically necessary and to wear a mask at all times. Only 4 to 5 people will be allowed in waiting room. You will be required to wait outside if needed. If possible, print and bring all new patient paper work ready and filled out.
