SEE BELOW FOR CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONS:
In an effort to ensure the health and safety of our patients, we are taking the following precautions:
SCREENING ALL EMPLOYEES
All OFMC Employees are being screened and temperature checked upon arrival every day. If an employee is exhibiting any symptom(s) of the Coronavirus, they will not be permitted into the building.
OFFICE CLEANING PROTOCOLS
All areas are being wiped down and sanitized continuously throughout the day, chairs in all areas have been spaced out according to the recommended guidelines and we have instituted more robust infectious disease protocols in all patient areas.
PATIENT SCREENING & OPTION TO WAIT IN YOUR CAR
Upon arriving at the office, all patients will be screened outside the office and have their temperature checked. We are offering patients the option to wait in your vehicle until it is time for your appointment. You will be called when your Provider is ready to see you.
MANDATORY MASKING POLICY
To maintain the highest level of safety for our patients and staff we are requiring all patients to wear a mask while in any of our offices. Masks must be worn properly for the entire duration of your time in our facility. Neck Gaiters are not sufficient masks.
If you have been tested for COVID-19 and are coming into the office for an appointment, please bring your test results with you.
We need to have the results prior to you being seen by your Provider.

We are in this and will get through this TOGETHER!
