Our office is open and we continue to care for patients while adhering to the guidelines from the CDC, IDPH and other authorities regarding COVID–19 in this fluid and ever-changing environment. Our office, like all other medical practices, is considered an essential operation, and we will continue to make sure our patients pain management needs are a priority.

  • Our office remains open nearly every day of the week and we continue to respond to all patient phone calls, appointments and procedure needs in our office setting
  • We are waiving all cancellation and rescheduling fees. We ask that you notify us in the greatest amount of time possible so we can accurately plan and utilize limited resources.
  • We are closely monitoring staff health and taking temperatures daily.
  • To protect everyone… if you or an immediate contact is sick with cold, flu-like symptoms coughing, fever or have been exposed to COVID–19 please call to allow us to coordinate your care. Do not come to the office.

We will always:

  • Continue to use CDC recommended personal protective equipment including masks and gloves, and eye protection during procedures.
  • Wash our hands with soap and water and/or alcohol before and after each patient.

  • You have recently traveled or have exposure to somebody who has traveled
  • If you are not at-risk group with susceptible complications to COVID–19 or are immunocompromised
  • If your present pain level is well controlled with medications
