We are all in this together.

Patient Appointments:

  • Please come alone to your appointment, unless special needs require a person to accompany you into the clinic.  If someone is needed to drive you, we kindly ask them to stay outside of the clinic and remain in the car.
  • Someone will meet you at the door and check your temperature.  All patients need to arrive wearing a face covering, including masks or bandanas to enter the clinic.
  • We are happy to see you at your appointed times.  If you are concerned about coming in, please contact us and we will discuss options with you.  Post-op surgical care is important, and we want to ensure you are healing adequately.

More Information on COVID-19

The Coronavirus virus is named “SARS-CoV-2”. The disease is named “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19).

The virus spreads mainly from person-to-person contact between people who are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet). It spreads through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Fever, Cough, and Shortness of Breath may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

The following are steps you can take to minimize your exposure to the virus.

Prevention:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If no tissue, cough or sneeze in your arm/sleeve.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDCʼs recommendation for using a face mask.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • When you use a public bathroom, use a tissue or wipe to open and close doors, pump soap, and turn the faucet on and off.

Treatment:

  • There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19.
  • People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to support vital organ functions.
  • People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

For general questions about COVID-19, please reach out to your primary care provider or visit the CDC website.

Patients with symptoms can call the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s coronavirus hotline at 877-215- 8336.

Please protect yourself as best possible and use best mitigation practices. Thank you for your cooperation and support during this time. We can all get through this by working together!
