Schreiber Family Medicine (SFM) has always been committed to maintaining a safe environment with routine methods in place to reduce your risk of infection.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have enhanced our protocols to ensure your safety:
During times of high COVID transmission in the community, all patients and staff must wear properly fitting paper/surgical masks over nose and mouth while in the building (unless directed to remove the mask briefly for an oral/nasal exam). Cloth masks are not acceptable as they do not adequately reduce the transmission of currently circulating COVID virus strains.
Patients who are COVID positive or who are experiencing symptoms that may be due to COVID will not enter the building, but will be seen in our outdoor courtyard treatment tent.
We are currently following and will continue to follow all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New Mexico Department of Health guidelines.
We are seeing patients in the office for routine care but we will continue to offer services via telemedicine whenever desired, if your condition can be adequately managed virtually.
Dr. John White, our board certified pulmonologist, continues to see his patients in the office on Thursdays.
Endoscopy Services (Colonoscopy/Esophagogastroduodenoscopy):
Depending on hospital policy, pre-procedure COVID testing may be required within 24 hours of your scheduled procedure.
Telemedicine visits will be billed to you/your insurance company and usual copays and deductibles do apply.
We urge all of our patients to get vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless you have a medical contraindication). We encourage you to stay up to date on CDC recommended booster doses.
