Artemis Colorado – Vein and Cosmetic Center is happy to announce that we will (tentatively) re-open and begin seeing patients again on May 11th! In order to protect the health of our patients and our staff, we are implementing special precautions based on the guidance of the CDPHE (Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment). Here’s what to expect:
Telehealth Consultations Available
Even before Covid-19, we always welcomed patients to call us to discuss symptoms like pain, swelling, aching and tenderness in the legs. Now getting in touch by phone is even more important, and a starting point for treatment. We want to assess whether coming by for an in-person appointment would benefit you, or if a virtual consultation would be the best next step. To set up a FREE telehealth appointment, call us at 303-955-8314 or email us.
Minimal Interaction & 6 Feet Apart
We will ask patients who come for in-person appointments to wait in their vehicle until called – no one will be sitting in the waiting room at any point. Only two patients will be admitted in the office at a time, and we will maintain distance between patients of at least six feet.
Double Checking Symptoms & Pre-Screening by Phone
No patients with symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough or fever will be admitted. We will screen all patients by calling them before their appointment. Before entering the facility, Lisa, our medical assistant, will check each patient’s temperature and ask whether or not they have been experiencing symptoms associated with Covid-19.
Disinfecting is Key!
After each patient visit, staff will disinfect all areas of contact including beds, chairs, couches, countertops, light switches, door knobs, and the front desk.
PPE, Gloves & Masks Mandatory
All providers will wear face shields, safety glasses, masks & gloves and if possible gowns throughout the day when seeing patients. All staff will wear face masks and we highly encourage patients to wear a mask while in the office. Even when we are not seeing patients, our staff is still taking precautions. We are maintaining a six foot distance from each other (to the extent possible), and wearing personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks at all times.
We care very much about everyone’s health and think these steps are important. The staff at Artemis hopes that soon these measures won’t be necessary, but we ask for your patience as we work with them for now. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your symptoms or make an appointment – we miss all of our patients and look forward to seeing you very soon!
