Important Information Regarding COVID-19
WE WANT TO ASSURE YOU, AT DR. THOMPSON’S OFFICE WE ARE FOLLOWING ALL CURRENT CDC GUIDELINES TO PROVIDE OUR PATIENTS WITH A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR CARE. We are taking every precaution over and above the strict hygiene measures that we have always followed, including proper sterilization, cleaning and disinfection. As always, our staff is wearing the proper PPE in keeping with the most up to date standards of care and current CDC recommendations. We have added antiviral UV light to our HVAC and HEPA air filtration, just to be ultra careful and cautious. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time. We will be scheduling patients with sufficient time to allow for continued social distancing in our office. If you are sick or have reason to believe that you have been exposed to the Corona Virus, please stay home!
We are open our regular office hours Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
At this point, based on recommendations from the government, CDC, and other authorities, we are seeing urgent care patients and elective surgery cases including implant surgeries. If you have an actual emergency, please call 911 or go to the Emergency Room.
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.
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.
