Weekly Update 3/30/2020
As we enter into our second week of routine care closure we want to assure our patients that our office will remain open for patient communication and emergency care. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us by phone, text or email if you have any questions, concerns or just wish to connect with a friendly voice.
We understand how isolating the current situation may feel, especially for the seniors in our community that may live alone and are taking extra precautions to stay at home.
This week, my wife Lisa and I will be reaching out to our patients age 65 and older to say a friendly hello and see how you are managing.
We encourage all of our patients, both young and old, to likewise reach out to those in our community that may need a kind word or special assistance with food or supplies. By staying connected and looking out for each other we can better get through this period of time.
