Covid-19 Patient information

This message is for all of our patients, we hope all are staying safe, healthy, and following all the necessary guidelines presented by both the state and Federal Government. Due to recent reports concerning the Coronavirus, we are monitoring the CDC and NYDOH websites and taking necessary precautions. If you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath and have recently traveled to China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Italy, or Iran, or you have been exposed to someone potentially infected with the Coronavirus, please contact the NYS Department of Health at 1-888-364-3065 instead of scheduling an appointment at our office if you are exhibiting signs and symptoms of an upper respiratory illness (cold or flu-like symptoms).

Any patients complaining of any recent loss of smell or taste, could potentially be at risk for COVID-19 and should seriously consider being tested.
