COVID-19 Important Information



Telemedicine via WebEx

In response to COVID-19, all our offices we will continue to remain open and follow our normal hours of operation for as long as it is safely feasible. Changes to our regular hours will be reflected on this page.

For the convenience and safety of our patients, we are implementing Telemedicine using WebEx. If you are unable to visit, or are uncomfortable visiting in person, please call any of our offices to schedule a Telemedicine session with one of our providers.

The health and safety of both our patients and team members is paramount during these challenging times and we will continue to closely monitor national guidelines from organizations such as the CDC and WHO.

We have also increased the frequency of our common area sanitizing and cleaning procedures to hourly (e.g. counter tops, door handles, lights switches, computer equipment, phones etc.)
