CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

June 1, 2020

Dear Patients:

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!

Sincerely,

Peninsula Gastrointestinal Specialists, Inc.

To our Patients:

Like all of you, we at Peninsula Gastrointestinal Specialists are very concerned about what we can do to protect ourselves, our families, and our community from the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic We are closely monitoring guidelines and would like to inform you about the actions we are taking to prevent spread of the virus.

The building has implemented enhanced routine environmental cleaning procedures throughout the property. This includes enhanced anti- bacterial cleaning solutions.

We remain available for in-person office visits for urgent issues only. Non-urgent office visits are expected to resume in mid-April.

Any team member experiencing symptoms is instructed to stay home. In cases of a patient needing in-office appointment, we are scheduling only one patient at a time to minimize contact.

We have completed an extensive computer upgrade to Windows 10 Pro recommended by Epic to assure that your Electronic Health Records are secure.

Telehealth Appointments are now available. You may call our office for instructions, or go to our website (https://www.mygidoctors.com/new-patients).

We would like to inform you that as more cases of COVID-19 are confirmed in the Bay Area, we are doing our best to keep abreast of the rapidly changing guidelines and taking action to prevent potential exposure to the virus.

1. The building has implemented enhanced routine environmental cleaning procedures throughout the property. This includes enhanced anti-bacterial cleaning solutions.

2. We are encouraging greetings other than hand-shaking, constant & diligent hand washing for at least 20 seconds, not touching our faces, and training our employees to do the same.

3. We encourage everyone to practice social distances (stay at least 6 feet away from others) and are promoting this by staggering appointment times to avoid crowding in the waiting room.

4. Patients who have non-urgent appointments have been encouraged to stay home. Obviously, we also ask for your help that if you are ill or show any signs such as fever or cough, that you remain home and consult with your physician.

We will remain open for our patients to help with their digestive needs. We hope that with everyone's help we will be able to weather this storm together. For more information, please visit San Mateo County Health Website, and Centers for Disease Control, and Goggle's Project Baseline Website.
