CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATE

Information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak is rapidly changing and we are closely following the evolving advisories from the CDC, WHO, and NYC Department of Health.  

To ensure maximum safety for our patients and community, while providing the necessary care still needed, we are implementing several changes in our operations.  

Please be aware of the following:

1. We are reducing our in-office visits to those which are necessary for our pregnant patients and to GYN emergencies.  All walk-in labs except for certain pregnancy-related tests are temporarily suspended.   All currently scheduled patients from now at least through Friday, March 27th, will be notified and rescheduled accordingly. 


2. If you are experiencing cold or flu like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), please do not come to the office and seek appropriate medical care.  

3. Please do not bring guests or visitors to the office with you, including children.  

4. We are expanding our ability to provide you with services via telemedicine and will be able to accommodate your needs virtually in many cases.  We are here to support all our patients and encourage you to contact the office with additional questions.

Additionally, you can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by taking these actions:

•Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available


• Avoid close contact with sick people
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow


• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe.


• Obtain a flu shot if you have not had one for the 2019/2020 season
• Follow the current CDC and NYC Department of Health Advisories, links available here:
