We want you to know that your health and well-being is our primary concern.
From recommendations provided by the CDC, our leadership team has implemented new protocols in order to protect the health of our patients and team members. Please know that we will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure that you are in a safe and healthy environment.
For any emergency, a member of our staff can be reached at 678-878-4555
Please be advised for any emergency visit, the following protocols will be in effect until further notice:
- Prior to Your Appointment:
A member of our customer care team will be calling to confirm and conduct a pre-screening questionnaire to assess any risk factors such as recent travel or contact with anyone with symptoms or a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. We ask that you please leave any unnecessary bags in your car or at home and wear a face mask as advised by the CDC.
- Upon Arriving:
- You will receive a temperature check by a nurse. Persons with a low-grade fever above 99 degrees and/or showing upper respiratory symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath will not be allowed to enter and will kindly be asked to call and reschedule for a later date.
- We are limiting the number of guests within our facilities. Unless absolutely necessary, we will ask that any guest accompanying you please wait in the car. For patients within the clinic, we are enforcing social distancing at check-in with tape to indicate a safe, six-feet distance between you and other individuals.
- Our physicians and team members will be wearing masks and gloves while seeing patients to help decrease any risk of exposure.
- Each patient will be assigned one exam room after being worked up with a technician where they will wait and then see their doctor. Each exam room will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each use. This includes all equipment and surfaces that any individual comes in contact with.
- We have also created shields from various materials to create a barrier and provide an extra layer of protection for our patients and providers when coming in close contact with the face and eyes.
Again, this is an evolving situation, and we will be closely monitoring it and providing patients and team members with updates. We are doing everything we can to keep our patients and team members healthy. Thank you for your cooperation and support during this time, we can all get through this by working together!
Stay safe and well,
The Physician and Team at Atlanta Vascular and Vein Center
