The health and safety of our patients, physicians and employees remain our top priority. As the COVID-19 virus has reached pandemic status, changes in operations were necessary to protect our community and minimize the spread of the virus.
Effective March 19, as recommended by the CDC, all SEES Group offices are now only seeing patients with conditions that, if left untreated or delayed, could result in long-term visual damage or loss, such as macular degeneration patients who are requiring ongoing injections.
Additionally, we are postponing all currently scheduled elective procedures. Our physicians and staff will still be available for post-op visits, though as many as possible will be conducted via phone.
If you are a patient with a sight-threatening condition and need to schedule an appointment, please call us, we are available for any patient that requires assistance.
We are committed to providing our patients, community and team members with the information and care they need to stay healthy.
As the situation changes or develops, we are committed to transparent and open communication.
