Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Dr. Rehnke and his practice greatly value the health and safety of our patients and staff. We are taking every precaution necessary in the prevention of the spread of illness as recommended by the CDC and Health Department. We use, as we always have, CDC and the Health Department required hospital-grade disinfectants to clean countertops, door handles, light switches and any regularly used surface areas. These areas are being disinfected more frequently than usual and we have provided hand sanitizer in every room for patient use.
Our staff has been instructed to follow CDC recommended prevention measures including increased frequency of handwashing with antimicrobial soap. Members of our staff have been instructed to stay home if they become ill. Likewise, to maintain a healthy environment, we ask that if a patient becomes sick (which includes a cold, a fever, the flu, etc.) or has the onset of symptoms of an illness, that you reschedule your appointment. If you arrive for your appointment with symptoms of an illness, you will be asked to reschedule for a later date. This is for your well-being as well as the health of our employees, nurse practitioners, and patients.
If you do need to cancel your appointment, please call us as soon as possible and we will reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling better and symptom-free for 2 weeks or have been tested and cleared by a doctor. We pray everyone remains healthy and safe!
