We care about you. That’s why we are putting your health and safety first. These are unprecedented times and we are updating our practices on a daily basis as new information becomes available about the Covid-19 pandemic.
What does this mean for our patients? Social distancing doesn’t mean we have closed our doors. We are utilizing telemedicine and teletherapy (counseling) for all new and returning patient consults. We are doing our best to keep your fertility journey moving forward. However, as Covid-19 can be easily spread even in asymptomatic patients, we are limiting our operating hours. Our Warren office phone lines are open Monday & Wednesday, 8-4 and Friday 8-2, and our Bloomfield office is open Tuesday & Thursday, 7:30 -3:30.
Current national guidelines from the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, our governing body, has advised us not to start new treatment cycles. We know that infertility treatment is not an elective procedure; that most of you have waited months, or even years to start a family. Some of you may have started medicine in anticipation of an embryo transfer, paid for treatment that was expected to start. Please know that we take our responsibility to you seriously. Not only to help you achieve your dreams of parenthood, but to follow the oath we took when we became doctors: First, do no harm. Staying healthy in the current situation is foremost. Emergency rooms are full of acutely ill, infectious patients. Health care workers are stretched. Personal, protective equipment is limited. We are doing our part to limit our use of precious medical resources like gloves and gowns and masks for those who depend on these to keep them safe. The healthcare staff that you rely on to treat you when you are ill need these items. With the current healthcare situation, we also want to keep our patients out of emergency rooms where they may be exposed to Covid-19, face long delays in treatment for pregnancy related conditions. Pregnancy is an immunocompromised state and while we wish every one of you to be pregnant, we wish you a safe and uncomplicated pregnancy.
We are committed to providing the best care for you, now and in the future. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Be well, stay well.
Together, we will make your family dreams come true. ♥
