During this highly unusual and stressful time we want you to know we are here.
We are seeing patients on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and are keeping our waiting room available for one patient at a time with no overlap. Our staff is wearing N95 protective masks so that we cannot inadvertently infect you and vice versa. We are all currently healthy and symptom free. We do ask that you wear some sort of facial protective covering when you come in, such as a surgical mask of any kind or simply a scarf covering your nose and mouth.
We continue to provide wellness, preventive care as well as problem-oriented visits and all in-office procedures including laser treatments for both "vaginal rejuvenation" and for external issues including lichen sclerosus. The laser has been scientifically proven to treat both painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, recurrent urinary tract infections and lichen sclerosus. As essential providers we continue to perform these procedures in the office and there is no increased risk of infection or complication during this viral pandemic.
Please feel free to call us with any concerns.
Stay safe and healthy and do not neglect your own health during these extremely trying times. Please remember: adequate sleep, regular exercise, nutritional eating and relaxation methods including yoga and meditation are all ways to boost one's immune system to decrease the susceptibility to viral illness. This virus included. Social distancing of 6 feet or greater, 20 seconds of handwashing before eating, touching one's face and coming in from outside are all key to preventing infection.
In good health,
Dr. Eden & Staff
