On June 11th, the state of Illinois will be lifting the current mask mandate in alignment with the CDC. Please be aware that The CDC guidelines don’t apply to health care settings, and we will be following guidelines set by the CDC in all locations.
As the majority of our patients are elderly and/or immunocompromised, we will still require masks to be worn when arriving at the office.
If you have been fully vaccinated on or before May 28, 2021 and would like to remove your mask while in the exam room, you are permitted to do so upon notifying a member of our staff and showing proof of vaccination (i.e. your CDC vaccination card).
If you have not been vaccinated, we thank you for your understanding as you continue wearing a mask and keep fellow patients safe.
We will be seeing patients in person for PROCEDURES ONLY, and for the foreseeable future ALL MEDICATION REFILLS AND FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS WILL CONTINUE TO BE TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS.
What to Expect the Day of your Appointment:On the day of your appointment, we ask that you wait in your vehicle and call us upon arrival. A member of our front desk team will let you know if the office is cleaned and ready for you to enter, or may ask you to please wait patiently in your car for a few more minutes. To maintain the highest standard of safety and sanitation, only the patient will be allowed into our practice during their appointment time. Our waiting room is still closed, we regretfully cannot allow anyone without an appointment into our office.
Our nurse will screen patients before their appointment time using a question list provided by Quest Diagnostics designed for staff to inquire via phone about patients’ potential COVID-19 symptoms or exposure ahead of entry to the office.
Masks are REQUIRED at all times. Patients should be wearing their own cloth face covering upon arrival to the facility. If you do not have a mask, we will kindly ask patients not in compliance to reschedule their appointments. If you arrive at our office without a face mask, please be aware you will be rescheduled and charged $80.00 for a late rescheduling fee.
When it is time for your appointment, please knock on our office door and wait to be invited in.
There will be no need to stop at the front desk, and no need to fill out any paperwork, all intake will be verbally collected by a member of our staff.
The Doctor will be in shortly after, and due to our need to properly sanitize the office in between each patient, we will need to discuss and treat the primary reason for visit only. If you have a new problem for Dr. Mikuzis or Dr. Georgelos or additional questions, we would be happy to discuss during your follow up Telehealth call.
Regretfully, we are unable to escort patients out of the office at this time. If you need assistance leaving the office, we ask you to make arrangements to meet you back at our office door 45 minutes after your appointment time.
