When you make an appointment, our representatives will ask you some questions to assess you for possible COVID-19 infection. If you have or have had a fever or chills, or a cough, shortness of breath, or other signs of respiratory illness, you will not be able to make an appointment at CEENTA. Prior to your appointment, you will receive a reminder call where you will be asked the same questions. If you are experiencing those symptoms, you will be told to call the front desk of the office where your appointment is scheduled to discuss if your appointment should be rescheduled.
In accordance with state mandates and in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, masks or other facial coverings – such as surgical, cloth, or dust masks – must be worn before entering our buildings. Facial coverings should not include valves, as they do not protect the individuals around you. Our physicians and staff are all wearing masks and other personal protective equipment to ensure your safety while you are in our offices.
Every one of our exam rooms is thoroughly cleaned using enhanced cleaning processes after each appointment. That way, you know your exam will be in a sterile, virus-free environment.
We are limiting the number of people who come to our offices in order to minimize the number of potential carriers and ensure we can maintain safe distances between people in our waiting rooms. If you have an appointment, please come alone unless physical assistance is needed. If you do need someone to drive you to your appointment, we ask they remain in their car during your appointment. We ask that only one parent accompany children to their appointments. Outside visitors, such as vendors, are also strictly limited.
In order to maintain safe distances between people, we ask patients to leave six feet of distance between each other whenever possible while in our waiting rooms. Chairs have been spaced six feet apart to ensure you can sit a safe distance from others while you wait. We also ask that you maintain six feet between you and others when in line at our front desks.
Any physician or staff member returning from
domestic or international travel must self-monitor for COVID symptoms for 14 days upon
return, continue practicing hand hygiene, and wear a face covering when social distancing is
I had a cochlear implant activated last year in my left ear. Dr. Stowell did the implant and my audiologist was Dr. Horning. That nerve had been dormant for about 40 years. I didn’t think they could fix my left ear because the nerve is dead, but they’ve been very good. I give them an A+.
