Resumption of Surgery and Office Visits
I want to thank my many patients who reached out to me over the last few months – it was profoundly moving and reminded me of how strong a bond I have been lucky to form with so many wonderful people many of whom just happen to also be my patients.
I am pleased to announce that we have resumed our full surgery schedule as of June 8 and our full schedule of regular office visits will resume as of June 22. We have made substantial changes to our practice including steps to minimize the risk of Covid exposure to patients and also will continue to offer telehealth visits in the future.
