Rochester Coronavirus and Our Plan
Well it’s here. Rochester has its first cases of Covid-19, and it is time to make our plans. Anyone who has been to the grocery stores knows that this is turning into a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be alarming.
We’ve thought long and hard about what our response should be, if any. We already work hard to ensure any surfaces a patient touches are sanitized in-between visits, but we will be taking extra precautions to keep our office disinfected. We never overbook, to prevent any mistakes and to give everyone time to be safe and comfortable, and now with the virus here we’re going to be extra cautious.
All that said, we think what’s right for our patients is to stay open during this time. We can’t help anyone if we go hide at home, if you schedule an appointment we will be here for you. But please, if you are not comfortable with coming in let us know, and we’ll be accommodating to whatever your needs are.
To that effect we are adding a new appointment type to our online scheduling system that ensures that you have the full hour so that you may avoid crossing paths with others. Just Select “CORONAVIRUS PREVENTION – 1 Hour“.
As always, we are happy to welcome your children into our office. With schools closing things are going to become more stressful. Please don’t sacrifice your well being because you’re worried your kids will run around and be kids. We love them, please bring them!
