Covid-19 Operating Procedures

In accordance with recommendations from the Kentucky Department of Health, we are open with limited waiting room seating and increased cleaning/disinfecting procedures. All providers will be wearing masks and we ask our patients to do the same.

To protect our patients, we are happy to offer telehealth visits via computer or telephone as an alternative to in person visits.  Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have – we are here to help!

We encourage you to continue to use discretion with your visits out of the home as there may be a resurgence of Covid-19 cases with more social interaction. Please wear your mask when you are out of the home.
