We reopened our practice to patient care on May 11, 2020 and just finished our first full week. While we quickly felt comfortable getting back to fulfilling our goal of improving lives by improving vision, it was not without differences and challenges. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our patients in an environment that we have maximized for safety under the current circumstances. The key differences in our practice are:
- Patients are asked to check in to their appointment the day before with online forms
- The reception area is your vehicle, once you call us we can greet you at the door
- All patients are asked to wear a mask, if possible
- The team will be wearing masks, but we are still smiling behind them!
- You will be asked to use our hand sanitizer or wash your hands once inside
- There are plexiglass dividers at the reception desk and on our contact lens training table
- There are breath guards on all microscopes and phoropters (the unit used to measure focusing at far and near distances
- Each room is closed for disinfecting at the completion of an examination/evaluation
- Our scheduling capacity has been intentionally reduced by approximately 60% to allow for appropriate patient flow in the practice
- Dr. Press needs a haircut
While things may appear to be a bit different one thing will always be the same, our mission to deliver compassionate expert care in a comfortable environment. We appreciate your support now more than ever!
