Coronavirus precautions

virus spreading acroos the globe

Update: We continue to see patients in our office, Monday–Thursday 8:30am–5pm, Friday 8:30am-2pm. Please call ahead to make an in-office appointment.

FOR CURRENT PATIENTS ONLY: We now offer Telemedicine. Questions can be asked through our Patient Portal or you can call the office to request a phone appointment.

As healthcare providers we put the well-being of our patients and our staff first. We know you are concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), especially with the closure of schools, public meeting locations, and event cancellations. Our office is open (during our regular hours) and we are seeing patients.

We want to take some time to share our efforts to reduce the potential for exposure at our office and help keep our patients, staff and community healthy.

What Are We Doing?

We are following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and are taking extra precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus:

  • We are asking patients who have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath or if they’ve been traveling outside the US within the last few weeks to reschedule their appointment.
  • We have increased our cleaning measures and are frequently disinfecting exam rooms, workstations and high-touch surfaces and objects within our office.
  • We are offering hand sanitizer and face masks to our patients.
  • Employees are instructed to practice good hygiene and etiquette by washing hands frequently, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and avoiding unnecessary physical contact.
  • All sick employees are asked to stay home.

What Can You Do?

  • If you feel sick, cancel your appointment. Appointments will be rescheduled and there will be no penalties for late cancellations.
  • Don’t bring family and friends to your appointment unless necessary.
  • Keep social distancing in mind when in the waiting room – sit a few feet away from other people.
  • Stay home if you are sick or have flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath).
  • Wash your hands frequently.

We will continue to keep you informed as the situation evolves. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Dr. Lynn LeBlanc and Dr. Gabriel Gambardella
