An important message from your medical practitioner about COVID-19.
As your caregivers, your health and safety is our top priority. Please rest assured that our staff and and medical practitioners are taking every additional precaution we can to ensure that our office is a clean and safe space for ALL of our patients to continue to receive medical care during this time.
For your health, it is very important that you keep your scheduled appointments with your medical practitioner.
We understand you may have some concerns regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and for that reason we would like to share with you some of the extra measures we are taking during this time to keep you and your loved ones safe in our office.
We are proactively screening all patients to determine who may be at risk of having or may have been exposed to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). If a patient calls or visits our office and is found to be at high risk, we have protocols in place to help those patients get the testing and treatment they need
outside of our office without putting you or our staff at risk for exposure.
Palmetto Primary Care Physicians is
not testing for the Coronavirus (molecular testing) at any of our offices. We are directing those patients to the appropriate hospital testing facilities.
Sanitization and Disinfecting
We have removed magazines and toys from our lobby and are sanitizing and disinfecting our common areas more frequently.
Rooming Our Patients Faster
Our staff is decreasing the amount of time a patient spends in the lobby while waiting for their appointment by moving them into a patient room as soon as one is available.
It is our hope that these extra measures will be the reassurance you need to keep your appointment and to continue to call us should you need to be seen by a medical practitioner during this time. Our office will continue to be a safe and clean place for you to receive the medical care you need.
If you are still uncomfortable waiting for your scheduled visit in our office, or if you are having respiratory symptoms - you can call us from your car and our staff will let you know when your medical practitioners is ready to see you!
Thank you, as always, for entrusting us with your care.
In Good Health,
