Dr. DuPrey-Murphy, Dr. Murphy, the Registered Nurses, and staff of Islip Ob-Gyn are committed to help stem the spread of COVID-19.
To help protect the safety of our patients, staff and families, we are limiting the number of patients who will be in our waiting room and treatment area.
Until further notice we are still only permitting the person who is being seen to come into the treatment area of the office.
All patients will continue to receive a mask from us, upon entering our office.
We are now seeing all patients, including annual visits, however we still cannot see patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 until they have a negative test.
All calls and situations are triaged through an RN or MD to see which patients are suitable for the office at this time.
We are still taking additional steps to help with social distancing
We are asking for patients who will be seen to either call us from the parking lot or to come to the office and sign in and then return to their car. If at all possible, we are asking that you wait in your vehicle. When we have a room ready for you, we can contact you and bring you in. This step will prevent a group of patients from being within close proximity of each other in the waiting room.
All new patients and annual visits will have a registration form sent to them via text message. This form must be completed and submitted online prior to the visit.
Our doctors are now performing elective surgeries. There is still a backlog of surgeries that were cancelled in March, April and May. We are asking everyone to be patient as we get things back to normal in a safe manner.
We are asking all patients the following information:
Do you have a fever or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a cough and sore throat?
Have you been in contact with someone with known or suspected coronavirus, COVID-19?
Have you been tested positive for COVID-19?
Anyone who has had a positive COVID test must bring their negative test to the office in order to be seen. This has to be a negative swab or antigen test. The antibody test is not sufficient.
