Dear Patients,

As our mission reads, we are committed to providing comprehensive pelvic and bladder care through education, research, advocacy, and management. Patient safety and well-being is our primary concern. In light of the current novel coronavirus/COVID-19, concerns affecting us here in the US and abroad, we wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the precautions we are and have always taken at our clinic to ensure your health, safety, and well-being.

Please know we always have and continue to employ the most up-to-date infection control procedures at our office. Be reassured that the infection control and standard precautions that we always employ are excellent deterrents to COVID-19 and every other virus. In addition to the routine steps we take, we are being extra vigilant with cleaning in all areas of the clinic. Surfaces and chairs in the reception area, exam rooms chairs and desk tops, light switches, door handles, and restrooms, which would normally be cleaned and disinfected daily, are now being disinfected multiple times throughout the day. Hand sanitizer is readily available in all areas of the clinic for your use.

We also ask for your help in keeping everyone safe. If you have traveled to China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran, or any other region affected by the coronavirus, please call our office prior to coming in for your appointment. Washing your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is of utmost importance.

If you have not been feeling well, have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please contact your primary care provider and call our office to reschedule any upcoming appointment. Our team (who are also being diligent about their own health) will be available to answer any questions or concerns.

For the latest information and guidance, please refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 situation webpage or the Department of Public Health website. Stay safe and healthy, we look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Sincerely,

The Team at Pelican Health
