COVID-19 Update

To better protect our patients and staff, our office is screening every patient that presents to the office for their appointment. We are asking only the patient enter the office and anyone who accompanies them please wait in their vehicle.

We are only allowing one patient at a time to enter the lobby and once they have been through the screening process we will let the next patient waiting to enter. Our screening process includes answering a few questions, having their temperature taken and given hand sanitizer to use.

We are also locking our front door throughout the day during our normal hours. If you come by the office and the door is locked please knock. If we do not answer the door please give the office a call at 850-771-2001. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we take these precautions to better ensure the health and safety of everyone.
