Important Information Regarding COVID-19
At the Facial Surgery Center, we have re-opened our facility to all patients as of Friday May 1st. When you arrive at our facility, you will notice that things are running a little differently now, out of an abundance of caution for you.
We have always maintained the highest standards of infection control, disease control, and patient safety, going beyond the required and recommended guidelines of OSHA and the CDC. We’ve continued that practice by instituting guidelines recommended by the CDC, AAOMS, and HHS specific to this virus. We’ve also implemented safety checks based on the most current scientific reports of virologists concerning SARS-COV2/COVID-19.
Before you arrive at our facility for your appointment, we’ll review with you how your appointment will proceed and what to expect. As this pandemic remains a very fluid situation, we will continue to update and change our protocols as the need arises.
We look forward to seeing you!
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Please don’t hesitate to give us a call with any questions!
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
