We provide the information below to help our patients (parents and guardians) understand what to expect when making plans to visit our office

You know the drill! To facilitate social distancing between patients, we have modified work flow at our office, including when and how patients enter and exit our office, and allowing extra time between patients.
All visitors must wash their hands in our private restroom upon entering our office
All adults and children should wear masks while visiting the office, as appropriate.
