Coronavirus Response

Posted: March 16, 2020

YES, WE ARE OPEN TO SERVE YOU.

We continue to care for new and established patients with venous and lymphatic disorders in our specialized clinic.  With few exceptions, we do our work-up and treatment entirely within our 7,000 square foot office with our skilled and specialized staff dedicated to our select patients.

WE WORK HARD TO KEEP OUR FACILITY SAFE FOR YOU.  We closely monitor the multiple daily recommendations from medical societies and local, state, and federal government agencies.

In addition to the daily cleaning of the entire office and our usual selective cleaning during the day of work spaces and patient care areas, we have increased the frequency of cleaning and antiseptic treatment of surfaces which might become contaminated by touch, clothing, or personal secretions.  The air in our office circulates continuously and is sterilized by ultraviolet light and then passes through HEPA (high efficiency particulate) filters.  Our staff wash their hands and utilize alcohol hand gel frequently. 

We recognize that it is difficult to know for sure when a cough or a sneeze is due to allergies or other non-infectious causes.  However, we have instituted policies for patients and visitors to our facility FOR THE PROTECTION OF PATIENTS AND STAFF. 

These policies are intended to reduce the spread of colds, flu, and other respiratory illnesses during a period of higher risk due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) which is sweeping the globe.

  1.  We ask patients to stay home if they believe that they might have a respiratory illness such as a common cold, flu, or COVID-19 or if your physicians have diagnosed you with an immunocompromised condition.  If you have an urgent problem, please call us at 931-551-8991 to help make decisions about whether we can help you by telephone, whether you need to see us soon, or whether to wait until you have recovered from your respiratory illness.
  2. If you are observed by our staff to have a cough, sneeze, or an apparent respiratory illness, we may require you to wear a face mask and to wash your hands with warm water and soap for the protection of others.  We suggest that you continue wearing the face mask at least until you return home.
  3. Please use the provided alcohol gel upon arriving to our waiting room and wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds once you arrive in our exam room.  We require our staff to observe you washing your hands.
  4. Please do not bring others with you to our office unless necessary.  We ask you not to bring more than one person with you.
  5. If you must cough or sneeze, cough into your elbow.
  6. Avoid touching any part of your body above your shoulders without washing your hands first.
