Like so many of you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world. For us, that means understanding how it affects our employees, patients, and communities, and then making the necessary adjustments to keep all of us healthy and safe. Here is what this means for you.
For all patients:
Every office has access to telemedicine visits. These are available for new patient consultations, as well as follow-up visits for existing patients.
If you have a fever, or you are otherwise feeling sick, please contact us to reschedule by calling your clinic location. You can find all phone numbers on our Locations page.
We will continue to do all trials, implants, and implantable therapy procedures.
Follow-up visits are available both in-office and over the phone.
Follow-up visits after procedures will all be over the phone.
For patients age 60 and over:
New patients will first have a telephone interview, and we will order the necessary imaging for an in-person visit.
All follow-up visits will either be done by telephone or rescheduled as necessary.
To keep you safe, we are rescheduling all procedures for our patients who are age 60 and over.
For patients age 59 and under:
You will have a rigorous screening done in the hallway before coming into the office.
We are continuing to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines and recommendations. We have shared specific instructions with our employees, and we have canceled all meetings and large gatherings for our staff. We are taking these steps to do what we can to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 illness.
Thank you for your understanding and for your trust as we all work together through these trying times. We encourage you to take some time to read the information available from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the Texas Department of Safety and Human Services. As we all work together to stop the spread of this infection, we are updating our Facebook page frequently. Please Like and Follow us to stay up to date.
