Our Response to the Outbreak of COVID-19

We are taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously and we want you to as well.
Below you will find our office plan:

Our Current Office Plan as of 9/20/2021:

WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT WALK IN APPOINTMENTS OR ANY NEW PATIENTS AT THIS TIME.  

Office Hours:

This has been a difficult and scary past year for everyone.  There will be many changes, but they are necessary for the health of all.

• We are scheduling patients for routine and well visits. You will be screened before your appointment to ensure you are not ill. We will continue with telemedicine as well. 
• It is imperative to keep social distancing! To do this in our office we, will need to have you wait in your car and call  our office phone when you arrive. When entering the office you will be required to wear a Facial Mask.   Only the patient is allowed in the room with the provider if possible. There will be circumstances when someone needs help and we will do our best to accommodate those situations. When another person has come with the patient, we ask that person wait in their vehicle. We need to restrict the amount of people in our waiting room to ensure social distancing guidelines.
• We encourage hand washing as much as possible.
• The front desk will look different as we have installed a glass barrier to help protect the spread of germs to you and our employees. All staff having direct contact with you will be wearing protective face masks, shields, gloves and or gowns if necessary.
As the weeks and months proceed, we will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 statistics and guidelines put forth by our Governor and the Health Department. We will be evaluating our workflow on a weekly basis and make changes as needed. Our hopes are to begin to see more and more patients in our office, but this will be a slow process to ensure we do not see a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Please have patience with us as we move forward with all the changes.
Thank you,
The Staff of Shaftsbury Medical Associates
