Dear Valued Patients,

In light of the recent health concerns, we want to assure you that our #1 priority is the safety and well-being of all our patients and employees.

We recognize and understand that there are legitimate concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus). Therefore, we want to update you on what we are doing to provide a continued safe environment for you, your family, and our employees.

First, we are constantly monitoring and taking actions to secure your health and safety while you are in our office. We have enhanced our already stringent hygiene protocols on all patient and employee touchpoints; additionally, we are providing anti-bacterial soap in all hand-washing stations for all patients and employees.

Secondly, we are reinforcing proper hygiene practices for our employees and patients by ensuring they: 1) Thoroughly and vigorously wash hands, 2) Discourage touching nose, eyes, and mouth, 3) Cover sneezes and coughs, and 4) If sustaining a temperature of 100.4°F (37.8°C) or higher (per the CDC), to please stay home and rest.

Thirdly, we ask that any patient with a temperature of 100.4°F (37.8°C) or higher to reschedule their appointment until they have been fever-free for more than 24 hours. The same rules apply to our employees so that we can ensure a safe environment.

For additional information about COVID-19 (coronavirus), your first resource for coronavirus updates should be the Houston Health Department at www.houstontx.gov/health.

Thank you for your trust in us. We look forward to seeing you during your visit to our office.
