Firstly, we want to say we sincerely hope you, your friends and family are healthy during these potentially stressful times.
We understand the growing concern surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the communities we serve. The health and safety of our patients, physicians, and staff is our top priority. Family Vision Care of Ponca City has been actively preparing our office, physicians, and employees to identify possible patients with the COVID-19 virus and to prevent transmission to themselves, other patients, and visitors. We are following recommendations of the CDC, WHO, state and local health departments.
Based on current guidance and our own standards and practices, we remain open and ready to provide excellent patient care experiences.
Patients with Upcoming Appointments
We are currently permitting only one caregiver to accompany patients to our office. If you have traveled internationally, traveled on any cruise ship, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, we MUST reschedule your appointment for a future date.
A Note to Our Higher Risk Patients
As the virus continues to spread, we want to protect and safeguard our most vulnerable patients – the elderly, people with serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease. This includes patients with cancer, organ transplant, immune deficiency, and those on some medications that suppress their immune system.
Elderly and higher-risk patients should consider changing any routine, non-urgent visits to a later date.
Potential Disruptions to Our Regular Schedule
Depending on community trends with COVID-19, offices may reduce patient load or close with short notice.
We will notify you if it is necessary to temporarily close an office.
