  • Virtual check-in and check-out
  • Pre-screening of patients for Covid-19 risk prior to entering our offices
  • Temperature screening of everyone before entering our offices
  • Mandatory face masking of patients and staff
  • Enhanced social distancing limiting the number of patients allowed in the office at any one time
