COVID–19 Update

Our office is following national and state guidelines for handling medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will remain open for urgent visits and surgeries that cannot be postponed. All non-urgent surgeries will need to postponed and will be rescheduled as soon as the restrictions are lifted. If you have an immediate need, we can arrange for a telemedicine visit with Dr. Thornton.

New office protocol is in place to protect us all during the pandemic. If you will be coming into the office for an urgent procedure, please note the following:

Please call to reschedule if you

  1. have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or signs of upper respiratory illness,
  2. have been around anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID or has symptoms of COVID
  3. have a family member or close contact who is sick with an upper respiratory illness or any symptoms listed above
  4. have traveled outside of Ohio in the last 14 days

If you bring anyone with you to the appointment, we ask that they wait in the car for you if possible.

We feel privileged to have the opportunity to provide excellent medical care for you. We continue to be dedicated to providing you the highest quality of care in the safest environment. We will get through this together!
