IT'S FLU SEASON!!
We are now administering the Flu shot for 6 months and above at all three sites. We are awaiting the delivery for the flu vaccine specifically for patients aged 65+ years. We will keep you updated once we receive them.
Please contact the practice to book your flu shot.
UPDATED OFFICE PROTOCOL
In line with the Department of Health’s increase of COVID restrictions, we have heightened our screening protocols for appointments at our 3 practices.
Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
For patients who have had their COVID vaccines, please bring your vaccination card to your appointment.
For patients who are not vaccinated or patients who are symptomatic (vaccinated or not) we will administer a COVID test prior to being seen by our Providers. Or the appointment can be changed to a Telemedicine appointment with our Providers.
COVID tests for appointments are covered by insurance companies (except Medicare) or there is a $50 charge for the test. We will accept a negative COVID test within 72 hours of a scheduled appointment providing a patient does not have any symptoms.
We wish to protect our patients and staff to allow us to continue caring for our community. We thank you for your support and cooperation.
