June COVID-19 Update
posted: Jun 12, 2020.
We at Peninsula Gastrointestinal Specialists have been closely monitoring the latest news and regulations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We have supported these efforts through the use of telehealth visits and by adopting social distancing and other CDC guidelines for those that needed in-person care.
The seven Bay Area counties have eased the shelter-in-place restrictions for healthcare operations. All patients can now be seen in our clinic. You can book an appointment online at https://www.mygidoctors.com/appointment or by calling us at 650-342-7432. Telehealth appointments will continue to be offered.
CDC Guidelines: We make every effort to meet or exceed all CDC standards for cleaning and minimizing exposure risk. We have implemented No-contact digital check-in procedures. Exam rooms are cleaned after each visit.
Patient and Employee Screening: We screen patients and employees for symptoms including temperature checks, and those with symptoms are asked to return home.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): The clinicians and staff all wear masks and use other PPE as needed. Patients also are required to wear masks at all times and are given a mask if they do not have one.
Social Distancing: Only the patient being treated enters the clinic to limit unnecessary interaction. The patient is escorted directly to exam rooms to minimize time in the waiting room. Appointments are spaced out for ample disinfection for each new patient.
Helping our patients stay healthy and safe is our top priority. Rest assured that our team is here for you. We look forward to seeing you to care for your digestive health!
