Masks are required for all Mass General patients and a single visitor is allowed. How it works is - During check in patients and a visitor will be given a clean surgical mask provided by our office. Make sure your mask covers your nose and mouth. Please keep the mask on until you are outside of the building.
In accordance with the CDC, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Mass General Brigham guidelines, our center has taken the necessary precautions to keep our patients and staff safe during this time. Some of these measures include:
- Pre-visit patient screening with a COVID questionnaire
- Upon arrival for your visit, you will be asked to maintain adequate distancing, wear a mask that we provide, and to sanitize your hands.
- We adhere to strict protocol for sanitizing offices, treatment rooms, and equipment.
- Patient should expect to wear the surgical mask for the duration of the appointment and should only be removed at the specific direction of the physician or nurse.
- Staff wears personal protective equipment and supports social distancing.
