Covid-19 Update - January 2022
Our physicians and staff have all been fully vaccinated - and boosted! In accordance with current CDC and Virginia Department of Health guidelines, all patients, visitors and staff members must continue to wear a mask while visiting any type of healthcare facility. This policy ensures that we can continue to protect both our unvaccinated and immunocompromised patients. Due to the wide spread of the Omicron variant in our area, we highly recommend use of a medical grade surgical, N-95 or KN-95 mask at this time.
Our office has resumed normal business hours
Mondays – Thursdays 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
The following the changes and protocols remain in place:
Patient appointments will be spaced out to reduce the number of individuals in the office at one time and allow for more thorough cleaning and disinfection of the treatment areas between patients.
If you arrive early for your appointment, we ask that you wait in your vehicle until your scheduled appointment time and/ or call the front desk (434.979.0728) to see if we can safely accommodate you earlier.
We ask that all adult patients over the age 18 please present to the visit unaccompanied to reduce the number of visitors seated in the waiting area. Visitors - including spouses, nursing aides, family members - will not be allowed in the treatment area at this time.
Patients under the age of 18 will be allowed one adult companion in the treatment area. Siblings will not be allowed to wait in the office.
We respectfully request that any patient exhibiting any cold or flu symptoms (i.e. cough, nasal congestion, sneezing, muscle aches, fever, nausea, etc.) call our office to reschedule your visit.
Thank you for your cooperation and your continued committment in helping us to keep our community safe as we continue to progress through this pandemic.
