Beyond the gowns and masks when looking at overall safety, we are implementing longer appointments to accommodate more treatment completed per visit. As a consequence of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have taken the time to consider what we can do to keep you and our team safe. More treatment per appointment will decrease the total number of in-office visits required and thereby less commuting ie less subway rides to see us. Also, because we are spending more time with each of our patients, this will mean less patients in the office at a given time. With every change, we want to assure minimal unwanted consequences. We have outlined things you can do to improve your experience and post-op consequences.
