COVID-19 Safety Protocol:

Updated December 23rd, 2022

Office Visits 

While virtual visits are helpful, there are many limitations to care and issues that can be missed without an in-person consult. Email consults are still available for general advice. Please see my services page for more info. 

Please contact me to discuss whether an in-person consult is right for you. 


Client Requirements:

***All adults and children over the age of 3 must wear a mask during the entirety consultation (this is non-negotiable at the current time, even if fully vaccinated).*** 

Until the CDC states that masking is not required in any situation, masks will be required in my practice.  I have patients who are or who live with immunocompromised persons that are unable to be vaccinated, patients that have not been vaccinated yet due to advice from their OB during pregnancy, and every single infant that I work with cannot be vaccinated.  


-Please monitor for symptoms of illness before on the day of our visit and let me know immediately if you or anyone in your house exhibits symptoms of illness.  (I will find you a consultant that will do a virtual visit and transfer your deposit to them.)

-Symptoms to watch for include: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, headache, muscle pain, chills, loss of taste or smell. 

Notify me immediately if you have been exposed to COVID19 even if you are vaccinated or currently asymptomatic.


My commitment to you:

-I will monitor symptoms in myself and each member of my family and ensure we are symptom free. 

– I will cancel appointments if any of us are symptomatic or have a  fever above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit



During our visit, I will:

-Wear a well-fitting KN95 or N95 mask

-Use gloves for exams (as per usual)

-Maintain social distancing during note taking, discussion and education, though I will have to be close, of course, for exams and position adjustments.  I will also end up holding your baby for a physical assessment.
