Health Safety Notification

Due to COVID-19 and per CDC guidelines, we are seeing patients on a modified schedule. Patients are required to wear a mask or face covering while in clinic. Unfortunately due to the PPE shortage, EANW cannot provide masks to patients. Upon arrival to the clinic, you will be asked if you have experienced a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and/or sudden loss of taste or smell within the past 14 days. We will also take your temperature. All visitors will be asked to wait in the car, unless they are needed for the appointment (caregiver, interpreter, etc.).
