Opening for Certain Necessary Elective Procedures

We recently heard the good news regarding elective surgery from Governor DeWine and Dr. Acton, and, while the details are still emerging, we wanted to let our patients know what this newest development means for you.

Firstly, we want to say how excited we are to get back in the operating room and to see all of our patients again. We have missed you and can’t wait to help you continue along your journeys. Secondly, we would like to tell you that in an effort to provide the clearest information for you, our guidelines for reopening will be announced early next week as details surrounding the lifted restrictions become more clear.

Based on what we know, certain procedures have been given the green light based on their necessity. These are surgeries that are necessary because they are affecting a patients quality of life. We predict that Governor DeWine and Dr. Acton will use a phase-in approach, staggering procedures based on necessity. We are actively gaining new information every few hours, and plan to communicate directly with patients who fall within these guidelines.

As for in-person consultations and appointments, we currently don’t have enough information to say with certainty whether we will be back in the office beginning May 4th. Nonetheless, we are working diligently toward being able to safely see patients again as soon as possible! This includes booking in-office appointments, scheduling procedures, and establishing coronavirus protocols for our office. In order to safely serve our patients, we are adopting new measures of protection against the coronavirus. More updates on these protocols will be announced with the details of our reopening.

We can’t thank you enough for your loyalty and support as we navigate this unprecedented time together. We are encouraged by this recent news, and are constantly monitoring the situation in order to communicate any further changes to our plans. We hope you are well and we look forward to seeing you in our office again soon!
