COVID-19 Updates

Appointments

To provide options for our patients during these uncertain times, we are offering both in-office visits for new and established patients, and TeleHealth visits for our established patients.  To schedule an office visit or a TeleHealth visit, please call 619-299-8500, option 2.

Patient/Visitor Guideline Update

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID transmission, provide a safer environment and promote social distancing, we are asking that patients avoid bringing visitors to their appointment. We are only allowing the patient into the waiting room and exam rooms. Additionally, we are respectfully asking that children not accompany any adult patient unless there is a medical necessity.

We are also requiring that any patient or visitor wear a face covering before entering our facility. Thank you for understanding and for helping us keep you and your greater community healthy.

Ensuring Your Safety

The safety of our patients and staff are top priority.  We are following strict disinfection protocols and continuously monitoring CDC guidelines and updates. We perform daily temperature checks on all staff and visitors, and require that staff members showing any symptoms stay at home to get well. We continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and alter our operations accordingly. 

As always, we appreciate our patients and thank you for your patience during this difficult time. We wish you and your families good health, now and always.
