Please read this important announcement from Dr. Bruce Morrison:
Letter to our Patients: An Update on COVID-19
At Morrison Family Medical, we appreciate the trust you place in us and want to inform you about how we are addressing the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Read below to learn more.
As a valued member of Morrison Family Medical patient community, we appreciate the trust you place in us and want to inform you about how we are addressing the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
We are closely monitoring events in our local community and continuously updating our policies and protocols as directed by the Center for Disease Control.
Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene, infection control and medical professional team health. We feel confident in our ability to continue seeing patients and providing the care and attention that our patients have come to expect.
Our highest priority is to keep all of our patients and staff as safe as possible.
Therefore, at the recommendation of CDC, we will be taking patients’ temperatures and asking these screening questions prior to allowing them to enter the reception area. Notably, all patients need to consider these questions prior to going to the physician office:
Have you traveled to a COVID-19 affected geographic area within 14 days of symptom onset? (China, Iran, S. Korea, Europe, cruise ship or any high risk sites in U.S.)
Have you had close contact with a person who traveled to high risk sites or has COVID-19?
Do you have fever and respiratory symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, please call our office first, at 215-947-9131 so that we can discuss with Dr. Morrison how best to take care of you.
Should you arrive at the office and meet these criteria, you will be asked to return to your vehicle and to call our office for a telephone assessment or a telemedicine visit so that we do not expose other patients and staff.
This effort will help determine whether you should be seen in a treatment setting that is better equipped for this situation.
Thank you for your continued trust and loyalty as we work together to fight this virus.
Dr. Bruce Morrison
