Our entire facility and rooms are being cleaned frequently throughout the day, to help prevent the spread of germs. We are now checking temperatures before patients enter in the waiting area and if they have a fever, patients are being assigned a mask to wear and immediately moved to a room to wait for the physician so that other people are not exposed in the waiting area.
If you come to our clinic right now, you will see these signs on the doors;
