Important Information Regarding COVID-19

Dear Valued Patient,

We hope that you and your family are well and staying safe during these uncertain times. Your patronage is greatly appreciated. We value and respect you and our team members. Please be certain that we are carefully monitoring the latest developments and recommendations regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). Therefore, we have decided to cancel all future appointments starting Friday, March 20, 2020.  The office will open on Monday, March 23, 2020 for emergency treatment only.

The decision to close the office to non-emergent, elective treatment was not taken lightly but was necessary considering the medical state of our country. Moving forward, all future scheduled appointments have been cancelled until further notice. Patients will be contacted to reschedule when the office reopens. Please contact the office at 910.497.3200 or the after-hours line at 910.489.0402 if you have a need to be seen. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Respectfully,
Dr. Angela Carr-Finch
Director of Operations


In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. 

We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
