We will continue to use up to date CDC guidelines to run our clinics in the safest way possible. These guidelines have helped develop the following procedures to best safeguard our patients and staff in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have an appointment and develop respiratory infection symptoms, we ask that you reschedule your appointment. Symptoms include:
- shortness of breath
- Loss of smell or taste
When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car and check-in over the phone at (616)954-2020. After check-in, we are asking you to wait in your car. When you are called to come in, please wait inside at the door so we may check your temperature, then you will be taken straight to an exam room.
We are attempting to lower the amount of people in the waiting room and exam rooms, therefore, we are also asking that you come inside by yourself with some exceptions:
- Patient is a child
- Developmentally delayed patients
- New patients who may have trouble understanding their diagnosis and treatment plan
During your appointment, we ask that you practice proper hand hygiene and cough etiquette, and limit contact with other people within the office as much as possible.
Please contact your Primary Care Physician for further instructions if you are experiencing symptoms. See this website from Spectrum Health or call (833) 559-0659 for more information on COVID19 screening.
