What is Bios Comprehensive Medicine doing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
Bios Comprehensive Medicine (BCM) stays up to date with the recommendations from the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) for guidelines on how to safely operate during the COVID-19 pandemic. BCM has been staggering patient visits to reduce the number of patients in the waiting room and we limit the number of people in the building to ten or less. The waiting room and offices are all cleaned and disinfected twice a day and the treatment rooms are cleaned and disinfected between every patient.
All patients who schedule in-person visits are screened to see if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 before their visit. If you are having symptoms of COVID-19, you will be asked to make a Telemedicine (video conferencing) appointment. When you arrive for your visit, your temperature will be taken. Per the CDC recommendations, you are required to wear a mask to your appointment. If you do not have a mask, one can be provided for you. In order to adhere to social distancing recommendations, patients who are following-up for routine care or patients who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste and or smell, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, or muscle aches) are encouraged to schedule Telemedicine visits.
