What Do I Need to Do Before My Appointment?

Check your temperature before coming to our center. If you have a fever (temperature greater than 100°F or 38°C) or develop any cold or flu­like symptoms (cough, difficulty breathing, body aches, chills, or new loss of sense of taste or smell) call our office at 888.580.5900 before leaving your home and speak directly with one of our licensed practitioners.

For patients traveling from out of town, we require documentation of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering the office. This is required for the safety and health of our patient and staff community.

There are currently COVID-19 vaccines available. We encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as you are able, based on your oncologist’s or other physician’s guidance. It is important to understand that being vaccinated protects you from the COVID-19 virus and from developing serious symptoms. After getting vaccinated anyone can still be a carrier of the virus. Even after vaccination, kindly continue to adopt precautions like mask wearing and social distancing to help keep our community safe.

If you are not vaccinated, when you are around someone who is vaccinated, we urge our patient community to take all your usual precautions such as social distancing and wearing a mask.
