If rescheduling isn’t possible, our specialists are equipped to prioritize safety:
- Team members frequently change examination gloves to avoid contamination

- Use an outdoor trash can so that PPE can be safely disposed of following the visit.
- Encourage patients to wear a facemask or other PPE if available.
- Maintain well-ventilated areas of the clinic.
- Keep visits as short as possible without sacrificing quality of care.
