Covid-19 Protocols

To protect our patients and our team from unnecessary potential exposure to COVID-19, we have implemented some new office protocols.

What We Are Doing:

  • We have reorganized our office and waiting area to maximize social distancing. 
  • We are scheduling patients to limit the number of people in our office. 
  • We have removed all magazines and closed water coolers from our waiting area to reduce
                    the risk of community transmission.
  • We are sanitizing all tablets after each patient use. 
  • Patients will be asked screening questions and their temperature checked via forehead scanner
                    upon arrival to the office.
  • We have increased our vigilance and frequency of disinfecting surfaces and rooms.
  • All VVI staff will undergo screening questions and temperature checks daily. 
  • All VVI staff will wear masks as well as other appropriate personal protective equipment.
  • Telemedicine appointments remain available for patients who prefer to be seen virtually. 

What We Ask Our Patients To Do:

  • All patients MUST wear a mask at all times while in the office.
                   *You will not be permitted into the office without one*
  • We are restricting the number of visitors allowed to accompany a patient into the office.                                       One adult may accompany a patient for adults who require a caretaker or interpreter. No children at                 this time.
  • Some patients may be asked to wait in their car until an exam room is ready.
                     We will call or text when we are  ready for you. 
  • Patients who are sick MUST call to reschedule their appointment.
  • Patients who have had exposure to COVID-19 are asked to call the office prior to their appointment
                     to determine the next appropriate step according to CDC guidelines.
