Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we are open to care for our patients and remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by practicing social distancing, mandatory mask use, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Toward that end, when it is appropriate, several of our physicians are offering patients the option of Telemedicine visits that are simple to carry out from the safety of your own home. Please contact our appointment scheduler if this is an option that you would like to pursue. We are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated through this website as conditions evolve.
For those who have scheduled or are contemplating scheduling surgical procedures at Oklahoma Surgical Hospital (OSH), OSH has implemented new guidelines due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to www.oklahomasurgicalhospital.com for the most up to date guidelines.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
