Considerations for the COVID-19 vaccine
We’re reopening on May 1
Dr. Sara Mucowski discusses what to expect:
New appointment policies
During the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Dallas IVF is committed to the health of its patients and staff. To ensure patient and staff safety, we will be implementing a few new policies to reduce the number of people in our office and comply with social distancing and stay at home orders.
Universal masking: all employees and patients are required to wear a mask; due to local shortages in face mask supply, patients are asked to supply and wear their own masks.
Temperature check: All patients and employees entering our clinics will have their temperature taken by a Dallas IVF staff member.
Only patients will be allowed in for appointments: Following medical guidelines to maintain social distancing and limit exposure risk, unfortunately no visitors will be allowed in for the appointment; this includes partners, children, family and friends.
Social distancing measures while waiting for your appointment: Patients are asked to practice social distancing while in the waiting rooms.
Telemedicine: To limit the need for in-person contact, all new patient appointments and follow-up visits will be telemedicine appointments.
COVID-19 testing: All patients undergoing IVF or a frozen embryo transfer (FET) will be tested for COVID-19, even if they don’t have symptoms.
Due to safety concerns, any treatment cycle will be immediately canceled in the event of:
- A patient showing COVID-19 symptoms, including but not limited to fever, cough or shortness of breath.
- A patient testing positive for COVID-19.
- A change in social or government situation in which Dallas IVF is not permitted to proceed with the cycle as planned.
In the event that a planned cycle is canceled, services already rendered will not be refunded.
