Letter to our Patients Concerning COVID-19 Virus

Dear Patient,

We know you’re concerned about the Coronavirus.

We want to reassure you we are taking aggressive steps to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus in our clinic. Our staff is following our usual infection control measures we always ramp up during flu season. We are doing extra sanitizing of all surfaces and especially the work spaces, exam rooms, bathrooms and waiting areas.

For the safety of our patients, providers and staff, we ask if you are ill or may have been exposed to a person with either proven or suspected influenza or COVID-19 virus, please do not visit our clinic without calling first.

 

If you have fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath and body aches:

  1. Call our office 608-227-7007
  2. We’ll determine if you need flu and or COVID-19 testing or treatment
  3. Don’t panic as cases of Coronavirus illness spike in the next few weeks due to increased testing. This is expected.

 

For now, the best we can do is treat these times like a bad flu season.

Remember to 

 

Thanks for your help in helping limit the impact of this virus within our clinical care setting and community.

Sincerely,

The providers and staff at

Physicians for Women, The Madison Midwives and Phases for Women
