Due to the recent rise in coronavirus outbreaks, you will find that we have made changes in our office in order to provide a safe environment for our patients, doctors and staff.  Some of these changes include, but not limited to, having all patients and staff wearing face masks. Per CDC guidelines, masks should be worn by both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals while indoors. We kindly ask for your cooperation as we all work through these required changes and look forward to seeing you soon!
