COVID-19 and Your Medical Care

Our Responsibilities

We, the physicians and staff of All for Women Healthcare, are mindful of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Your health and well-being are our highest priority. 

We are taking all precautions and following protocols recommended by the CDC and health officials, to provide a safe and healthy environment for all our patients and staff. Every exam room is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between patients. All areas of human contact, including the waiting room, lab, and patient restroom are likewise cleaned and sanitize throughout the day. Doctors and staff also maintain the highest standards for their own personal hygiene, as well as take suitable precautions (including gloves and mask as necessary) for the safety of patients and themselves.

Patient Responsibilities

We kindly ask that every patient take a serious self-appraisal of their personal health before deciding to come in to our office. If you are suffering from any kind of cough, flu, fever, cold, or other respiratory illness; have come in contact with anyone with a known COVID-19 infection; or if you or someone you have come in contact with, recently traveled to and returned from any of the high risk countries, we kindly ask that you refrain from making an appointment. Also, if you are elderly or have a compromised immune system, we advise you to stay home to minimize outside exposure, unless you have an urgent medical need and must see us.

Please be aware, if you do come to the office and present to us with a cold or cough, you may be turned away for the health and safety of the other patients and medical staff. If you have an appointment, but become ill before the appointment, please call the office immediately to cancel your appointment. For time being, during this health crisis, we will be suspending our Missed Appointment Policy, but we do ask that patients please call as far ahead of time as possible to cancel their appointment so that other patients can use that appointment time. 

Your Health and Safety Take Top Priority 

It is our sincere hope that this crisis eventually comes to an end with minimal impact on all of us. Until then, we must all do our best to stay healthy and respect the health and welfare of others as well.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Stay healthy. Stay safe.
