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.
Before any patient, family member, or CEENTA employee is allowed into one of our buildings, someone will take their temperature. Anyone with a fever will be sent home with the recommendation that they make an appointment with their primary care provider.
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 keratotomy 20 or 25 years ago, and for 20 years I did well. Then my corneas started to droop and glasses wouldn’t help my vision. I went to see several cornea specialists, and they said there was nothing I could do. Then I went to see Dr. Hammonds, and he said they could fix me right up. He sent me to Dr. Fox, and she fitted me with scleral lenses.
