Georgia Urology has made monitoring and responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic a top priority. After taking a comprehensive approach with a phased reopening of our offices and surgery centers, all of our facilities are now open for in-person visits. Our physicians and staff will be adhering to the safety precautions outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American College of Surgeons. Some of the safety enhancements include:
- Many of our providers and staff have received the COVID-19 vaccine, with more scheduled to receive it in the upcoming weeks.
- All physicians, staff, and patients must wear a mask or cloth face covering. Patients are encouraged to bring their own masks to their appointments.
- We will be taking the temperature of everyone who comes to our facilities. We will not admit anyone with a fever.
- We are limiting the number of people who may accompany patients during visits. Adult patients are limited to one guest during their visit. Pediatric patients may have more than one guest accompany them if needed.
- Office and Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) patients will be scheduled to minimize the number of patients in the office or surgery center at one time.
- Where appropriate, we will continue to use telemedicine for many patients.
- Patients who are over 80 years old or who are immunocompromised should not come to the offices unless instructed by a physician.
As always, our mission is to provide the highest level of care in a safe environment. We remain committed to that mission.
