Arthritis and Osteoporosis Consultants of the Carolinas urges our patients to continue to keep their medical appointments virtually or in-person during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To keep our patients safe, we have in place multiple measures to enhance safety and limit the spread of COVID-19 including HEPA filters in all exam rooms, the waiting room, infusion suite, and business offices. Mask wearing is required of all staff and patients. All staff members have their temperature checked twice a day and all patients have their temperature checked and respond negatively to a directed questionnaire before gaining access to the clinic. We have limited the number of patients in common areas such as the waiting room and labs and, with few exceptions, only patients are allowed back in the individual exam rooms. All rooms and equipment are wiped down in between patient visits and all patient-facing staff members wear a mask, gown, and gloves when interacting with patients. Social distancing is employed throughout the clinic and infusion patients now receive their treatment in a redesigned infusion suite with bacteriostatic barriers or in individual exam rooms.
Infusions, Labs, and Scans
We are still providing full infusion services at both locations, and our staff is on-site for any prescription refill requests and to answer any patient questions.
