COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Notice to patients as of March 2021:
Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery (OPS) is dedicated to improvement of the health of its patients and the greater community. The current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis requires action on the parts of medical providers and understanding by patients. Our physicians and staff welcome the opportunity to serve you! We continue to evaluate patients, conduct surgeries and are glad to serve you in the safest manner possible.
1. With that said, OPS will not evaluate at any of its locations any patient with known COVID infection, recent exposure to someone with a known COVID infection (within last 14 days), recent international travel (within last 1 month), or recent cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, chills or loss of taste or smell. If you respond positive to one of these screening questions and feel you have an issue for which rescheduling is not appropriate, please contact the office.
2. We require that the patient not bring visitors to the appointment unless a visitor's presence is absolutely necessary during the actual clinic visit. The visitor will be asked to remain in the lobby or their vehicle for the duration of the appointment. Pediatric patients will also be allowed only one visitor (a parent or legal guardian) in the exam room.
3. We require that patients and guests bring their own mask or facial covering and wear it all times during their visit.
4. These protocols are subject to change as needed and are solely designed to help protect you, our staff, other patients and guests during your visit and to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
5. Our practice has implemented additional safety and disinfecting processes to help ensure the safety of all involved.
OPS is willing to communicate in an unprecedented fashion for questions that might be handled by phone/email to minimize office visits and positively impact this evolving public health issue.
