COVID-19 Update: Effective May 1, 2020, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and NCDHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen have allowed elective and non-urgent procedures and surgeries to be performed in our state. Certain guidelines have to be followed including: an assessment of the medical necessity of the procedure, maintaining protective personal equipment, protecting the exposure of patients and staff, and screening for COVID-19 related symptoms. Our physicians will be resuming surgery as recommended by state guidelines.
We will continue to take precautions in our office by screening our patients and staff for COVID-19 symptoms, limiting visitors accompanying patients, asking patients and staff to wear a face covering, practice social distancing when possible, and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. We are requiring all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering when in our office. We are also offering TELEMEDICINE for patients who do not wish to come in to the office.
COVID-19 symptoms include: fever, chills, shortness of breath, cough, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, sore throat, headache, new onset loss of taste or smell. Please notify your primary care physician if you are having any of these symptoms. Learn more at www.cdc.gov.
