COVID-19 UPDATE for PATIENTS
In response to the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic and the recent announcement from the Government of Manitoba, our office is making the move to increase the provision of services to our patients. Please be patient as we restart elective consultations, diagnostic testing and elective surgeries. Rest assured that our priority is the safety of our patients, our staff, and our community. We have established appropriate protocols in our office to ensure your safety.
We will continue with measures of screening and protection until further notice. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit our website for further information, instructional videos, dry eye resources and instructions for care after surgery. This virtual online platform has been developed as a result of the need for physical distancing, and will carry on as an ongoing feature of our practice.
