Due to COVID spacing requirements all able-bodied adult patients should come to the office ALONE. Parents cannot accompany their Adult Children unless the child has developmental delay. Spouses cannot accompany able-bodied patients. Family MUST wait in the car or outside the hospital. If a family member wants to hear the conversation or help translate, bring 2 cellphones and we can use your speakerphone once the exam starts. If your family member does not speak English, complete the new registration form for them before you come to the office.
If we are running behind schedule and you can walk easily, please give the office manager your cell phone and return to your car. The hospital has closed the former K-wing entrance indefinitely. We understand it is a long walk. Thank you for following the hospital rules during these trying times.
