We apologize for any inconvenience, but in light of the increase in COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases in Kansas, we are implementing restrictions to limit both you and our staff to exposure.
Existing Patients & Scheduled Appointments
Please feel free to call our office to reschedule your appointment to a later date if you are unable to comply with the restrictions below, or if you would simply like to limit your potential exposure. We will maintain regular office hours from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Please call 785-539-8700 to reschedule.
Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment. This includes spouses, significant others, children and other family members. If you must bring someone, please limit this to ONE adult over the age of 15. Anyone who accompanies you must also meet all the restrictions below.
Please DO NOT ENTER OUR BUILDING if you or anyone you have been in contact with over the last 14 days has had any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, chills, runny nose and/or congestion.
Please DO NOT ENTER OUR BUILDING If you or anyone you have been in contact with in the past 14 days has traveled via airplane or cruise ship to or from or had an (airline) layover in the following high-risk areas in the last 14 days: China, Japan, Italy, Iran, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Vietnam, or most of Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Greece).
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience, but we are taking this matter very seriously and want to not only protect ourselves, but you and your family as well. We understand these restrictions will not be welcomed by all, but we ask that you kindly respect this very difficult decision.
Local COVID-19 Resources
If you suspect coronavirus or are experiencing fever of more than 100.4, respiratory symptoms or shortness of breath, please call the Riley County screening hotline at 785-323-6400.
This will reduce potential exposure to additional people and especially those with pre-existing and chronic conditions who may be more susceptible.
The best way to prevent the spread of illness is through:
Good hand hygiene
Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who are sick (and if you are sick, stay home)
Cover your cough
Clean surfaces with disinfectant
