Regarding COVID-19

We ask the following of patients:

  • Allow 48 hours for medication refills to be processed after your appointment. Call the clinic if your current appointment does not meet this criteria.

  • Read and observe Health Mandates from DHSS and the Governor’s Office. Click here.

  • Know your category of risk for COVID-19 and take action accordingly. Click here.

  • Please minimize travel companions and ask them to wait in the car. Only patients will be allowed into the clinic. If this poses a transportation issue, language barrier, or other communication issue, please contact the clinic prior to your appointment.

  • Children, unless patients themselves, will not be admitted to the clinic; children are susceptible to COVID-19 but tend to show mild/no symptoms and it is difficult for active healthy children to refrain from exploring and touching surfaces in a stimulating environment.

  • Please note that patients will be screened at the entrance of the clinic for symptoms consistent with COVID-19, for contact with known cases of COVID-19, and for relevant travel history.

  • Patients should follow the recommendation to wear a mask in public, and will be required to don a mask before entering the clinic.

We advise the following:

  • Patients with an intrathecal pain pump should avoid air travel at this time due to the difficulty of refilling pump medication if a patient is stranded without logistical support.

  • Patients will be contacted by telephone prior to their appointment. If possible, visits will be moved to virtual space (Telemedicine or Telehealth) or rescheduled if any of the following apply:

    • If the patient falls into a high risk category for COVID-19 due to age or underlying medical condition

    • If the patient or anyone in their household feels ill with symptoms consistent with COVID-19

    • If the patient or anyone in their household has had contact with anyone known or suspected to have COVID-19

Please note that we do not have COVID-19 test kits.
