COVID-19

Apollo

To all our cherished patients,

As a preventative measure, we have been temporarily closed as of March 15, 2020 for elective office visits and hope to reopen soon.

We recognize the trust you place in us when visiting us and want to share with you the proactive actions we are taking to keep everyone safe with the current threat of COVID-19.

We are continuing to monitor the latest developments.

As a medical practice, we always adhere to strict hygiene protocols as part of our daily practice. With the pandemic, we and the building have also implemented enhanced cleaning measures to ensure we’re taking the appropriate precautions to safely see you in the office.

Office Visits

Safety is a priority and we continue to monitor best practices during the pandemic. Once we are able to open the office for elective visits:

  • Limiting patient appointments to avoid overlapping space occupancy.
  • Only one person allowed in elevator at a time.
  • Only patient allowed into office. Friends and family should remain outside the office.
  • All individuals must wear face masks.
  • All individuals must clean hands upon entry to office and when leaving office.
  • Increasing frequency of cleaning during office hours.
  • Strictly avoiding handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs.
  • Any person who is feeling sick or recently been sick cannot enter office. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sore throat, nasal congestion, sneeze, sweats, nasal discharge, and/or body aches.
  • Any person who has travelled internationally or been exposed to a sick person cannot enter office for a minimum of two weeks.

Virtual Visits

As always, we continue to offer virtual visits with new and existing patients. Our offices continues to respond to phone calls and web inquiries, and Dr. Chaboki continues video consults for patient considering surgery. Telehealth and telemedicine services are available too.

 

Please contact us with any questions. We remain focused on providing you the best service and care.

Stay safe! We’ll get through this!

Warm regards,

Dr. Chaboki and team

 

Control Measures

We will continue control measures to avoid infection spread. We all must slow the rate of spread to “flatten the curve”, reduce secondary spikes of infection, and give healthcare teams time to find treatments.

Control measures include:

  1. Wash your hands frequently. Scrub for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water not available.
  2. Stay home and practice Social Distancing.
  3. Wear face mask.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  7. Get your annual flu shot to protect against the flu.
