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, with the exception our ultrasound department. One guest will be allowed to attend an obstetric ultrasound with the patient. If a guest does attend the ultrasound, please ask them to wait outside the clinic during the appointment with the physician. Please do not bring CHILDREN in the clinic.
• FaceTime, Skype or audio by phone will be allowed only if your spouse/partner is not able to attend your ultrasound.
• 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, we are here for you! If you are uncomfortable coming to the clinic, call us, we are still scheduling Telehealth visits with a Doctor if it is appropriate.
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.
