Dear Patients:

Our office continues to actively monitor the COVID-19 situation in conjunction with local, state and federal health authorities. We have always followed very strict protocols of heat sterilization and disinfection in this office. Protection of our patients as well as ourselves has always been our top priority. Please rest assured that we will continue to take all precautionary measures to make sure this is a safe place for you and your family when it comes to your health.

We are aware of the World Health Organization’s designation of COVID-19 as a pandemic and are continuing to review all elements in addition to regular communication with the McLennan County Public Health Department and the Texas Department of State Health Services, to better support our shared efforts to ensure the health and safety of our community. As we continue to address this rapidly evolving situation, we want to encourage you to remain informed through credible sources like the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Center for Disease Control.

You can reduce your risk of infection if you:

1. Clean hands frequently with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
2. Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with flexed elbow or a tissue and dispose of it.
3. Avoid close contact (3 feet) with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
