At Capital Otolaryngology, the health and wellness of our patients is of utmost importance. In order to protect your well-being, our practice has continued to modify and advance its standard procedures in response to COVID-19. We have equipped our clinic with advanced stage HEPA filters to continually filter and remove harmful airborne viruses and bacteria. All patients are expected to wear face and mask coverings during their visits. We have also taken our clinic sanitation to a new level of cleanliness. Before any patient enters a clinic exam room, all instruments and surfaces have been thoroughly sanitized with CDC-approved chemical and heat-based methods.
With the implementation of our new, standard sanitation protocols we have been able to continue to offer our patients minimally invasive, office-based surgeries in a safe and compliant manner. All patients undergoing such procedures are screened preoperatively utilizing molecular analysis which helps us identify any potential COVID-19 carries with greater than 95% accuracy. All office procedures including balloon sinuplasty, turbinate reduction, and septoplasty can be safely performed.
Lastly, we ask individuals with any of the symptoms listed below to notify our clinical team. Your appointment may be rescheduled at your physician’s discretion.
- Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
- Muscle aches
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Change in smell or taste
Capital Otolaryngology will continue in its pursuit of Excellency when it comes to treating our patients.
