Spring 2021 Office News
To Our Valued Patients,
We hope this email finds you well and we wanted to update you on some exciting news at our office. With the number of new COVID cases in our area declining and more individuals being vaccinated (including the majority of our staff) we are excited to see more patients physically in the office. We have MISSED seeing you!!! Each doctor will still have a telemedicine option. We are also utilizing our socially distanced waiting room more with allergy shot patients.
We have also installed a negative pressure room so we are able to do Pulmonary Function Tests again. It must be ordered by a physician or NP/PA. If you are not fully COVID-19 vaccinated, a rapid COVID antigen test must be performed before you can blow into the machine. The results take 15 minutes so if you want to come earlier for your appointment, you can.
Starting on TUESDAY, March 23rd, we will be able to schedule allergy injections up to 1 week in advance and you will get a text message reminder of your appointment. You will still need to call at least 1 hour before you would like to come in for a SAME DAY injection. We will do our best to accommodate patients with empty exam rooms first for your wait time, but please understand there is no guarantee as we slowly make the transition to seeing more in-office appointments.
Unfortunately, we still have not been officially approved to distribute the COVID19 vaccine as of yet. We are still awaiting word from Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and will keep you updated if and when our status changes
