Coronavirus (COVID-19): An Update From Dr. Markarian
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has been dominating news headlines and has caused much distress for many of us.
As always, the safety of my patients and staff is my priority. Therefore, we are following State protocol and are taking the necessary precautions to not endanger any of our new, existing or potential patients.
All elective surgeries before March 27 are being rescheduled and our Massachusetts offices are closed for in-person consultations. We are working on the infrastructure to ensure we can meet our post-operative patients to meet their treatment needs in a safe manner.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please call your primary health care provider. For your safety and the safety of others, please do not come to an urgent care clinic or emergency room unless you have been instructed to do so.
If you have life-threatening symptoms like difficulty breathing or chest pressure, please call 911.
In challenging times like these, we want you to assure you that we are here to support all of our patients and have your friends and family members in our thoughts.
Dr. Mark Markarian
