Dear Patients, Families, and Friends:
We are happy to be back at work! Please take a moment to read this update, as we need to share some information about your next visit.
Please fill out a AAOIC Supplemental Informed Consent form before your next visit. This online form only needs to be completed once for every patient.
There are a few procedural changes that you will note at your next visit. None of them will require any extraneous effort on your part, but we want to be aware of these before your next appointment.
Our prior standards for sterilization and cleanliness were already beyond that which have just been set forth by the CDC and ADA, but we are taking it up another level. We have added HEPA air filtration and are adding glass extensions to the existing partition walls in our clinics. Please don’t be alarmed by this added vigilance — we are simply being proactive.
If you have any more questions please ask when we call you in the coming week. We are grateful for your support and cooperation as we adjust to the “new normal.” We are so, so excited to have you back in the office, and we hope you’ll be just as excited to see us!
