Update March 30, 2020:
As a scientist and doctor I rely on studies, facts, observations and good old common sense. This pandemic is real and deadly. Many of you are experiencing the stress and real consequences of this disease. The best medicine right now is to stay at home for both mental and physical health. This danger will take some time to leave our lives, so in the meantime the best we can do is take the humane step necessary to keep ourselves and loved ones safe. We are sorry that we cannot be open to serve you, this is our livelihood and all our hard work from the past 10 years may be lost, but we believe that the only safe and responsible thing to do is continue to stay closed until such time that science, facts, observations and good old common sense prevail.
We are allowed to correspond with you through texting for some medical needs. Please don't hesitate to text with your questions.
Please be aware that we also are unable to secure the medical equipment needed to run a safe practice for the doctor, our staff and our patients.
We thank the medical staff and other essential businesses for staying open. We encourage you to stay home with your family and loved ones, check in on your neighbor, and remember we are all in this together.
If you have a concern, you can text our clinic number at 618-548-6755 and we will get back with you as soon as possible.
