At this time, ENT of Athens is operating on a normal schedule and continuing to care for patients in our community. Therefore, it is safe and appropriate for patients, especially new patients and those with critical needs, to keep their appointments for office visits and surgery as long as they have not:
- Had a fever, cough or cold/flu like symptoms, or symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough or shortness of breath)
- Been exposed to someone that has been diagnosed with coronavirus or someone that has had contact with anyone under quarantine for the virus
- Recently traveled outside of the United States or been exposed to anyone returning from outside of the United States
Please note, for the health and safety of our patients, their family members and our staff, we are encouraging our established patients to utilize our expanded telemedicine services if/when possible, in lieu of on-site treatment at this time. To request to have your in-office appointment changed to a telemedicine appointment, please contact us at (706) 546-7908 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be regularly checking voicemail and email to accommodate these requests as quickly as possible.
We will continue to update our website with any changes to these policies. We appreciate your patience during this time.
