Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

If you have an appointment scheduled with us, you must speak with one of our team members to be screened before coming in for your appointment or entering our office.  We call all of our patients prior to their appointments to conduct screening.  Please be honest in your responses to our screening questions.

If you have any of the following:

  1. A fever, cough or difficulty breathing
  2. Fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache
  3. A sudden loss of taste or smell
  4. Sore throat, congestion or runny nose
  5. Nausea or vomiting or diarrhea
  6. Returned from travel outside of the area or to a coronavirus hot spot
  7. Contact with someone who has OR is under investigation for COVID-19
  8. Have been tested for COVID-19 and are waiting for a result
  9. Been in a large group without social distancing

you will likely be asked to reschedule your appointment. 

In line with CDC and CMS Recommendations and the Public Health Advisory issued by the Florida Surgeon General, we ask that anyone entering our office wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth during their appointment with us and for the entire time they are in our office.  If you do not have a face covering, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment.
