*** CLINIC POLICY CHANGES DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK ***
FOR SAFETY OF PATIENTS AND OUR STAFF, WE ARE USING CONSULTATION CALLS or TELEHEALTH VIDEO-CONFERENCING: Patients need to book an appointment online or by calling the clinic during office hours. We are only booking for consultation calls or telehealth visits. Please do not come to the clinic. For urgent procedures and cases that need physical examinations, patients still need to book an appointment and if the doctor confirms that the patient needs to be seen at the office, our office assistant will call the patient to make arrangements for an in-person visit.
