Caring For Your Health: COVID-19

We are closely monitoring Hawaii events regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and have taken steps to protect our patients and employees. Rest assured that our team will maintain a hygienic, germ-free office environment by sterilizing and disinfecting patient contact areas throughout the day. As part of our in-take procedures, we will be conducting non-contact digital infrared temperature screening prior to entering the office area and inquiring about recent contact with people who are currently ill as well as recent travel.If you are feeling sick or feeling ill (feeling colder or hotter than others around you, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, shortness of breath, weakness, dizziness, chest pain, etc.), we kindly ask that you reschedule your appointment for a later date (at no cost to you) and to go to your nearest urgent care center or emergency room.We appreciate your patience and cooperation in our community effort to contain and control the unnecessary spread of communicable illnesses like the common cold, the FLU and COVID-19. Your health an safety are our highest priority.
