COVID-19 UPDATE: Effective Monday, May 11, 2020 – Millgrove Medical Center will open to serve our patients. We will be taking extra precautions in line with government and CDC social distancing guidelines to provide the safest environment possible for our patients and staff through the duration of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
If you have a COVID test pending or have symptoms suspicious for COVID infection (e.g., cough, fever or loss of smell), please inform our office prior to scheduling an in-office appointment.
If you have tested positive for COVID in the past 14 days, please call our office directly for alternative arrangements.

How is Millgrove Medical Center preparing for COVID-19?
We continue to monitor new information about COVID-19, and we are adapting our care practices to reflect the latest recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”), Department of Health (“DOH”), and other overseeing regulatory bodies.
Have additional safety measures been implemented?
We’ve implemented a COVID-19 specific protocol. This protocol includes rearranged waiting rooms to allow for greater social distancing as well as thorough surface cleaning and exam room sanitizing between patients. Only patients visiting the doctor will be allowed into the building, except in the instance of a parent accompanying a child aged 18 or under.
Patients will also have the opportunity to wait in their cars and complete check-in procedures using a cell phone to limit the number of people in waiting rooms. Our physicians and staff have been provided with personal protective equipment (PPE), and we ask that you also utilize PPE (including but not limited to mask and gloves). In addition, we remind and encourage you to clean your hands frequently and use the provided hand sanitization station on arrival at the office.
Patients will be asked to wear a mask or at least a homemade covering scarf / bandana at all times while on the office premises.
Are you pre-screening patients?
The safety of our patients and communities we serve is our number one priority. Patients will be properly assessed for COVID-19 risks (via phone or in person) prior to being allowed into any clinical areas. Patients will have their temperatures measured and will be required to answer additional COVID-19 specific questions. It will be reinforced numerous times that our offices are not the venue for patients with symptoms consistent with a significant risk of ongoing COVID infection.
