COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our policies and restrictions are being updated frequently.

We are once again offering all services on a limited schedule basis in office. We will continue to offer telehealth visits to established patients and have extended availability in our Holly Springs location. As always, our patients' health and safety is a top priority, especially during this challenging time. Our office is taking several steps to ensure all Federal, State, and Local safety measures are taken. We will continue to screen all patients at the door and ask that you bring/wear a mask if you have one.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms or you are concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, call the UNC helpline at 1-888-850-2684 before visiting our office, an urgent care location, hospital, or emergency room.

Please reschedule your appointment if you have COVID-19 symptoms or are concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19. This can be done through your patient portal or by calling our office at 919-788-4444.

As a courtesy to our patients and staff in order to reduce risk of exposure, we are DISCOURAGING VISITORS at this time. We REQUIRE that PATIENTS attend appointments ALONE.

With some schools being released, we ask that you PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT to arrange childcare to reduce exposure. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment to accommodate this request.
