COVID-19 Updates

UPDATED NEW OFFICE PROTOCOL: IN EFFECT NOW

MANDATORY COMPLIANCE FOR PATIENT AND STAFF SAFETY:  We are requesting that ALL patients comply with the following guidelines that has been outlined by the CDC in order to ensure that all patients and staff are SAFE during this time of the coronavirus pandemic.  

We will be reminding all scheduled patients to review theses steps BEFORE their appointment and no patient will be allowed entry to the office without confirming guideline review.  THANK YOU AS WE ALL STAY SAFE!

CHECK- IN:
PLEASE CALL OFFICE ON ARRIVAL 949 - 767 - 7444 or 714 - 973 - 9197 WHEN YOU ARE AT OFFICE DOOR AS WILL BE LOCKED.

NO VISITORS / FRIENDS / FAMILY MAY ACCOMPANY YOU BUT YOU MAY HAVE ANY SIGNIFICANT OTHER ON YOUR CELL SPEAKER PHONE DURING A CONSULTATION OR YOU MAY REQUEST DR. AFIFI TO CALL AT END OF DAY IF ANY QUESTIONS.

ALL MUST WEAR MASK AND WE RECOMMEND GLOVES (SO CAN DISINFECT OR REMOVE AFTER YOU LEAVE):  YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN OFFICE WITHOUT MASK

PLEASE BRING:

     ID, form of payment and own pen with stylus top  (DO NOT BRING PURSE / BAG or anything else or use crossbody small purse or put wallet in pocket) -

                       we can provide pen with stylus top but then you would have to sanitize this after

     YOUR OWN HAND SANITIZER (AS WE NEED TO UTILIZE OURS FOR STAFF), own gloves

PLEASE BE PATIENT AS PACE WILL BE SLOWER IN ORDER TO DISINFECT EACH ROOM AND FOLLOW CDC GUIDELINES: 

YOU CAN CHECK IN BY CALLING AND WAITING OUTSIDE OFFICE AS WELL AFTER WE KNOW YOU ARE HERE (NO SITTING IN WAITING ROOM):  

MUST HAVE 6-7 FEET IN BETWEEN 

THERE WILL BE NO WAITING IN THE WAITING ROOM - patients will check in via call and then be called to come in from their car - alternatively, you can wait outside in the Courtyard, spaced 7 feet apart and you will be called in when room ready.

EXAM ROOM: 

Office is disinfected daily and each examining ROOM after each use.

We will greet you with virtual affection – this is no contact office (Dr. A WILL BE WEARING FACESHIELD IN ADDITION TO N95 MASK AND GLOVES)

Please maintain 6-7 feet between – you will be led to SPECIFIC EXAM ROOM.

Dr. Afifi's one staff member will be writing notes and giving her necessary material.  Dr. Afifi will be the only one otherwise interacting with you in the room.

PLEASE FORGIVE US BUT DUE TO THE MUCH REDUCED FLOW, THE DR WILL BE UNABLE TO CONVERSE WITH YOU AS USUAL IN ORDER TO TREAT PATIENTS AND HAVE TIME ENOUGH TO DISINFECT THE ROOM BETWEEN PATIENTS.  She will shower you with virtual affection - no contact other than actual treatment if needed.  Dr. A will be dispensing a lot of virual hugs though :)

  

UPON CHECK OUT:

There will be a screen between you and check out staff - 

For credit cards, you will be given opportunity to show staff your card (behind plexiglass screen) and sign with stylus.

Cash payments:  money will be allowed to be placed in plastic container, no contact needed.

Appointments for follow up will be made and we encourage you to obtain them immediately as schedule will be slowed with longer wait times though this can be avoided if you make appt at office rather than calling back later.

WE RECOMMEND GENERALLY DISCARDING GLOVES UPON ARRIVAL TO CAR FROM ANY DESTINATION (groceries / doctors office / gas station) TO AVOID CONTAMINATION:

THUS YOU MUST WEAR NEW GLOVES BEFORE COMING TO OFFICE (office will be disinfected anyways but we are being super cautious)
