COVID-19 (Coronavirus) CLIENT INFORMATION
Even though restrictions may be lifted, we are going to continue to only offer “curb-side” service at this time until further notice and are not allowing clients into the building to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our clients and employees so that we may remain open to care for your pet. We are also not going to put our staff at risk to police clients who do not want to wear a mask. We will examine your pet inside the building while you wait in your vehicle and Dr Ramsey will consult with you personally during the exam. We certainly respect your decision to cancel or postpone your pet’s appointment at this time if you do not wish to have your pet examined in this manner.
We are scheduling new patient appointments, however, due to an extremely high volume of appointment requests, we are booking into December at this time. Please understand that we have to implement a daily appointment limit as we only have one ophthalmologist on staff. If your pet has an urgent issue, we will do our best to get you in sooner, however we we may have to recommend you call around to other ophthalmologists to try to get your sooner care for your pet if we are at maximum capacity.
Current appointment/medication pick-up procedure is as follows:
- We are choosing to offer “curb-side” service ONLY for all appointments until further notice and are not allowing clients into the building. We have decided that this is the safest decision for our clients and staff members. Our staff will be wearing masks when we approach your vehicle. We would appreciate if clients would wear a mask as well. We will bring your pet inside for the exam while you wait in your vehicle.
- You may access the restroom at any time while waiting for your pet’s appointment by following the sidewalk to the left of the front door and enter thru the side door. Please wear a mask into the building and practice social distancing and hand washing.
- All pet’s must be on a leash or in a carrier to prevent contact. For canine patients, we will come out to your vehicle with our own leash. For feline patients, please sterilize your pet’s carrier before the appointment.
- TEXT or CALL: 517-655-2777 that you have arrived and what vehicle you are in.
- We are removing the New Client Form link at this time. We are trying to eliminate clients bringing paperwork to our clinic to reduce contact. Please reply to your email or create a new one at: email@example.com with your pet’s history/current medications, concerns, etc.
- We will provide a phone consultation with Dr Ramsey and a written discharge summary once the appointment has been completed.
- A staff member will be in contact for a credit card number over the phone.
- FOR MEDICATION PICK-UPS: PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org OR CALL 517-655-2777 AND WE WILL RESPOND ASAP WHEN YOUR MEDICATION IS READY. WE WILL REQUIRE A CREDIT CARD NUMBER and then please email or call when you are in the parking lot and we will bring it out to your car. As always, we can mail medications if preferred but mail service has been very unpredictable (can take 2-14 days) so please order medications at least two weeks before you will need them.
WE CAN’T THANK OUR WONDERFUL CLIENTELE ENOUGH FOR YOUR PATIENCE AT THIS TIME WHILE WE WORK TO CARE FOR YOU PET’S!!
ATTENTION: If you are sick in anyway, or are displaying symptoms of Coronavirus, or if you have been exposed to another person that is infected, PLEASE CANCEL YOUR PET’s APPOINTMENT.
