If you have (or someone close to you has) traveled internationally,  or if you have come in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, are experiencing a fever, or have had cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days, please do not visit our office and follow public health guidelines. We will reschedule your exam.
