Update Regarding COVID-19

Your Health and Wellness Has Always Been Our Top Priority. We will be opening our office for elective procedures beginning April 26th, 2020.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) have been closely monitoring and responding to the ongoing outbreak of COVID19 caused by the novel coronavirus. Based on guidelines set by the CDC and the DPH, the following protocols will be implemented in our office effective immediately.

Patients who believe they are showing signs of infection, or who live with someone with symptoms, will be asked to reschedule their appointments and stay home. This is especially true if you have fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing, sudden loss of taste or smell. Call your physician's office before going in for an appointment to minimize exposure risk to those in your community.

Help us prevent the spread of viruses through good hand hygiene, avoid touching your face and placing fingers in your mouths and please understand our team will refrain from handshakes.

Hand sanitizer (or antibacterial soap with water), as well as food-grade Hydrogen Peroxide rinse, will be offered to all patients at the beginning and end of your appointment and is available throughout the office.

Please inform us if you have traveled to an area with a high infection rate recently (within the past 14 days), and reschedule your appointment to ensure you are symptom free. We will continue to practice strict universal infection control protocols in our office, as we always have, for your safety. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our team, are our primary concern and we thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

For the latest information on our practice relative to the COVID-19 outbreak, please check our Facebook page or our website. For details on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit www.cdc.gov.

Thank you for trusting us to be part of your healthcare team!

Sincerely,
Dr. Gary Bartholomew, Dr. Alex Bartholomew & Team
