Office Policy

At the practice of Dr. Scafuri & Associates, we are commitment to providing patients with excellent care. Whenever you need us, we are there for you seven days a week!

We are currently offering in office appointments for our patients.  However, if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or are COVID-19 positive, you will be treated by a Tele-doc appointment with one of our practitioners.

We know that it’s natural to feel anxious visiting our office in person at this time. However, we are here to reassure you that we are taking precautions to minimize any potential risk of virus transmission.

 All patients are screened by being asked a series of questions regarding COVID-19 by telephone before they are permitted to enter the office.

 “No-touch” registration option via email and telephone are in place.

 Our waiting rooms are kept to a small amount of patients at a time. Patients are asked to wait in their car and will be called for their appointment to minimize the amount of people in the office.

 Patients experiencing COVID-related symptoms are not permitted into the office. They will be treated by telemedicine.

 Care staff will wear PPE (personal protective equipment) and are screened for symptoms of COVID-19 daily.

  Patients are required to wear masks at all times.

  Medical assistants will meet patients in the waiting room or the front door, take their temperature, and then escort them directly to the exam room.  Hand sanitizer is available in both waiting rooms.

 Office procedures limit the number of staff members and other patients that those entering the building will interact with.

 Careful cleaning and disinfecting protocols between patients for all equipment that is used are enforced.

 Office visits are limited to the patient whenever possible. Notably, if a companion is necessary, such as for an elderly or special needs patient, they must submit to the same procedure explained above as the patient does.

While your visit to our office may look slightly different, know that we are committed to offering you the same excellent care you’ve come to know and trust from our practice. We thank you for your patience, support and cooperation as we work together to continue our care for your health and well-being, and for the health of our community.

We look forward to seeing you in our office soon!
