At Women’s Health Associates, we are taking steps to reduce the number of medical appointments and traffic within our walls. We are making sure the office is clean, disinfected and safe for our patients and staff. We are kindly asking our patients to assist us in reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure so we may maximize the safety of our patients, staff and community by following these guidelines:
• We must limit the amount of people in our clinic. Only patients are allowed in the clinic. Please NO Guests or CHILDREN in the clinic
• FaceTime, Skype or audio by phone will be allowed so that your spouse/partner will be able to take part.
• Exceptions are for a parent of a minor or someone accompanying an individual who cannot be left alone.
• ALL patients will be screened before they are allowed into the waiting room. We will ask a few questions and do a quick temperature scan. If your temperature is 100 degrees or over, you will have to wait outside the office until a provider can evaluate the situation.
• Our staff is being screened daily, the same as our patients.
• Call us if you need an appointment and we will assess if it can be converted to a scheduled Telehealth visit with a Doctor or if visiting the office is appropriate.
• You may see a different OB/GYN physician than you regular one at times. Our physicians are staggering their shifts for safety purposes.
We at Women’s Health Associates are being as proactive and protective as possible for the greater public well-being. For current information, please visit the CDC and World Health Organization website.
We sincerely thank you for your patience and cooperation. Updates regarding our clinic and patient management will be posted as needed. Our physicians are staying up to date and ready to support our patients through this challenging time.
