We are now about 9 months into the COVID-19 pandemic. As we continue learning how to live with our present “normal,” please be mindful of the following:
- Telehealth services are available, as appropriate depending upon the services that you need. Psychological testing cannot typically be completed via telehealth. If you would like telehealth, you do need to have a reliable internet connection. Most insurances cover telehealth, but it is best for you to check whether yours does prior to making an appointment.
- In-person appointments do carry increased risk of exposure to COVID-19. Only you can decide if the benefits of having an in-person appointment outweigh the risks for you.
- All individuals coming into the office for services are required to wear masks. If there are reasons why an individual cannot wear a mask, please contact the office to inquire about telehealth services. No services will be conducted in-person with individuals who are not wearing masks or not properly covering the nose and mouth.
- Only the patient may attend the appointment. If the patient is a minor child, one parent/guardian can attend with the child.
- If the patient has been in close contact with anyone who has had COVID-19, they may not attend an in-person appointment until they have quarantined for 14 days after the last contact with the individual who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
- If the patient has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has had any COVID-19 symptoms, they may not have an in-person appointment until 14 days after the symptoms/diagnosis.
- If you have been recently quarantined related to COVID-19, please contact the office to see if it will be necessary to reschedule or if telehealth services are needed.
During this time, we are counting on you to be cautious and mindful of safety needs for yourself and for others. We are all in the same storm and we rely on each other to stay safe and healthy.
If you have any questions, please call the office at 731-439-4301.
