COVID-19

OUR OFFICE IS OFFERING SAME DAY ANTIGEN COVID-19 TESTING! CONTACT THE OFFICE FOR DETAILS: 412-532-9720*

Per the new mask recommendations updated May 2021 the CDC still states that FULLY VACCINATED individuals should wear a mask when in a healthcare setting. Our office falls under the CDC’s definition of a healthcare facility. We respectfully ask that anyone that is at our office continues to wear a mask until the guidance changes.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. There are many types of human coronaviruses, including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans.  (faq.coronavirus.gov)

The health and safety of our patients and staff remains a primary concern.  While our facility has always followed rigorous sanitation and cleaning protocols and featured all private patient rooms with separate air filtration, we have implemented a number of additional measures:

  • UV-C Germicidal Surface and Air Sanitation Unit 
  • Hospital grade uniform and linen services. All staff change uniforms and shoes on site prior to and at the end of each shift
  • All patients, visitors and staff are required to wear face coverings
  • Dr. Bauer and the Surgical Staff wear a powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) during all surgical procedures (photo below)
  • Glass partitions at check in and check out
  • COVID-19 screening and temperature checks for all patients, visitors and staff

*Current COVID-19 in office testing fee is $50
