Patients and Families,

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we work
through Covid-19 containment efforts. We practice knowing how crucial it is
to respect with the upmost importance the health and safety of our patients,
staff and all families. Because of the intimate nature of our work, we are
constantly taking the proper aseptic precautions and performing frequent
cleanings to protect everyone and to reduce the risk of any type of
infection, including those that are viral. However, in times like these,
everyone becomes more aware of proper hygiene and infection control
procedures and we understand the importance of addressing this issue.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are reviewing the
CDC and Virginia Department of Health recommendations daily to make
any additional changes to our procedures. We are confident we are currently able to continue see all our incredible patients and families. We will be continuing our normal office hours at all locations.

If you have been around or cared for anyone with flu-like symptoms, we
kindly ask that you reschedule your appointment or inquire about a
telehealth visit.

Per the CDC, symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough and
shortness of breath. This time of the year, allergies begin showing up. This
can result in cough and/or shortness of breath. While you might feel fine
and be certain you only have allergies, please understand how this might
appear to other people. If you or anyone in your family does come into the
office with these symptoms, we will kindly ask you to reschedule your
appointment for the safety of everyone or inquire about a telehealth visit if
you need medications refilled.

To provide social distancing please do not bring any family members with
you to the waiting room. If absolutely needed One family member may
accompany you.
