We are closely monitoring events in our local community and will continue to update our policies and procedures as a result of any new information.

Please know our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities. We feel confident in our ability to continue seeing patients and providing the quality care you have come to expect and deserve.

Our highest priority is keeping all of our patients and employees safe.

We have implemented the following safety measures:

  • If you are experiencing ANY symptoms of COVID-19 please call (239) 334-7000 and reschedule your appointment. Symptoms include but are not limited to fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting.
  • To comply with CDC recommendation with social distancing, we ask that only the patient enter the building unless a caregiver is required. Seating is limited.

*Please Note: If a caregiver attends the appointment without a valid condition requiring them to attend, they may be asked to wait in the vehicle until the appointment is completed.

Our employees are diligent about washing their hands and sanitizing between patients. We are making every effort to keep patients separated in our waiting rooms. Most importantly we are asking patients if they are sick, have been around anyone who has had respiratory issues, fever, sore throat to contact our office to reschedule their appointment. We are also asking our employees to stay home if they, or someone they have been in direct contact with, is having these symptoms.
