Robert Scott, M.D. COVID-19 UPDATE REOPENING
Thank you for your patience with our office during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are, as of May 18, 2020 open to visiting and telemedicine patients. The County of San Diego and the State of California have lifted many of the previous restrictions and have provided some guidance regarding the operation of medical practices. For new patient and follow up visits, we are encouraging the use of telemedicine, when these are sufficient. We are recommending office visits when a face to face examination is necessary and for hands-on treatments. We are typically performing telemedicine visits with Zoom or FaceTime prior to many of the face to face visits.
Patient and employee safety issues are paramount. We are typically seeing one office patient at time, meaning that you will be alone in the waiting room or office during your visit. We are completing documentation and taking payments and copays over the phone. We will phone you or text you when your appointment is ready, while you wait in your car. We are cleaning the rooms between each patient. The doctor and all staff are wearing masks. We prefer that patients wear masks as well. We are allowing on companion in the waiting room, but not in the examining room, unless absolutely necessary.
Per guidelines, all employees and patients will need to be screened with a COVID 19 questionnaire prior to visiting the office. If you have fever, chills, or any respiratory symptoms, including a cough, then please do not enter, return home directly, and contact your primary care provider. The same recommendation applies if you have been exposed to someone who is ill or is COVID- 19 positive. If you are concerned that you have COVID-19 or that you have been exposed to the virus, then we can assist you on finding a COVID testing site.
Please phone our office at 858 277 7123 and we will answer your questions regarding appointments, COVID 19 precautions, and your injuries.
Please stay safe and healthy.
