Policy with respect to Covid-19
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by Florida Department of Health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff:
Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
When you arrive so that a staff member will be able to greet you at the door and take a temperature prior to entering the office.
You MUST enter the office alone unless a minor or an individual that needs mobile assistance.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call/ text our office at 407- 780-2645 or email us at
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Before your appointment, you will need to sign our Patient Covid acknowledgment form. You can conveniently print the documents and bring the completed document to the to the office. Another option is to download the document and email, fax the documents to the office. Forms are available in PDF format. If neither is compatible with your operation system, please email us your format preference. We can also provide a physical copy at our office.
If answered yes to any of the above questions or refuse to sign this consent and acknowledgement from, we respectfully ask that you reschedule your appointment time for a later date. We feel it is important to protect the safety of our patients and employees and appreciate your cooperation in doing so.
