Until now, we have been screening patients in our front office for any signs of COVID, and to confirm that patients do not have a fever. Please note that because of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, we are taking extra precautions to keep all of our patients and staff safe, while still providing continuation of services. If you are planning a visit to the office for your appointment, we kindly ask that you do the following:
- Please call us from your vehicle when you arrive at (817) 912-1600, and press Option 2 to let us know that you have arrived. Additionally, please be advised that our phones roll to the answering service from 12:00-1:00 pm.
- Please REMAIN IN YOUR VEHICLE until your Medical Assistant comes out to your vehicle. She will take your temperature and screen you for any signs of illness. Once you are cleared, she will escort you into the clinic for your appointment.
- Because COVID-19 symptoms can vary, we will unfortunately not be able to allow you into the clinic for your appointment if you are exhibiting allergy or cold symptoms. We ask that if you do have those symptoms, that you call us prior to your appointment, and we will proceed with a phone appointment versus an in-clinic appointment. This way, you do not have to miss your appointment all together. Please note that Dr. Berutti and Melanie Martin, PA-C, will both give you the same undivided attention over the phone as they would if you were in the office.
- If you have knowingly been exposed to COVID-19, please do not come to the office for your appointment. Just give us a call, and we can conduct your appointment over the telephone.
As COVID cases continue to rise, we strongly encourage you to change any future in-clinic appointments to phone consultations. We do understand that some patients prefer an in-clinic appointment, and both Dr. Berutti and Melanie are willing to accommodate you, provided that you meet the criteria above.
We understand that the pandemic has made daily life much more difficult for all of you. Our hearts go out to all of our patients who have been directly or indirectly affected by COVID-19.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for continuing your service with the Dynamic Life Health Center and for having the confidence in us that you all have shown. We wouldn’t have made it without you.
