COVID-19 (aka: Coronavirus) UPDATE
Please note that we will continue to offer scheduled same-day appointments for acute problems, including sick visits and COVID-19 testing when appropriate. Please call us at 254-2444 for an appointment.
Many insurers have relaxed telehealth requirements during the pandemic. We are offering phone and televisits to patients who meet the criteria.
Masking Optional (Effective 3/27/2023)
In accordance with CDC guidelines, masking is currently optional in the healthcare setting and here at CFP.
Masking has been a valuable tool to prevent community spread of respiratory illness, and we continue to support and encourage our patients and staff that choose to continue masking. Patients reserve the right to ask their care team to wear a mask during their visit.
e-Check In remains available for patients that prefer to wait in their cars until their appointment and to be taken directly into the exam room.
(From today’s text message appointment reminder, click “Begin Check In.” After updating your information, scroll down and click the GREEN “I have arrived” button.)
***As community levels of COVID-19 increase, masking may become required again in efforts to slow the spread and keep our patients, staff, and communities safe.***
Masks are still required for anyone experiencing respiratory symptoms or that have been exposed to a contagious respiratory illness. These appointments may be seen at our respiratory care clinic, located at the back of the building. In the last two weeks, if you or anyone with you today has experienced the following symptoms, please wear a mask and call the office at 828-254-2444 to check-in. Symptoms include: Fever, cough, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, difficulty breathing, vomiting, muscle aches, headache, diarrhea, fatigue, and/or new loss of taste/smell.
