COVID-19 Update | Wolfe Eye Clinic
At Wolfe Eye Clinic, we continue to work diligently with our board of directors, physicians and staff to stay abreast of the most recent guidelines provided by the CDC and any potential impacts of COVID-19 for our patients, teams and facilities.
On April 24th, 2020 the state of Iowa determined it would reopen for elective surgeries and essential appointments as long as certain precautions can be taken to provide safety measures for patients and healthcare locations. At Wolfe Eye Clinic, our top priority is the health and safety of our patients and our staff. You can trust us to enforce the following measures in our clinics:
Reinforcement of our regular sanitation processes before, during and after each patient
Close attention to overall patient volume, with a goal of limiting the patient’s time in waiting areas, if any
Monitoring of all entrances to screen patients and staff, including testing temperatures
Asking all accompanying drivers or visitors to wait in the car, unless medically necessary
All patients, staff and physicians will be required to wear a face mask
Mitigate the length of all patient visits by attempting to obtain health history and current medication information over the phone prior to their appointment
Consideration of rescheduling any backlogged testing that can be safely performed prior or following the patient appointment
As we join together to work through this unprecedented global health crisis, we thank you for your patience and apologize in advance for any inconvenience it may cause.
Our scheduling teams have been contacting patients with previously postponed appointments or surgeries to provide details on rescheduling. If you have not been contacted, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at (833) 474-5850. In addition, if you have an upcoming appointment, you may be contacted for a time or date change as we instill social distancing measures and have a need to space out appointments.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (833) 474-5850.
