COVID-19 Update: Mask and Visitor Policy

Unfortunately, due to the rising COVID-19 case numbers in Palm Beach and Broward Counties, we have had to update our policy regarding visitors attending office appointments.

Effective Monday, August 16th, we are no longer allowing support persons or children with patients in the office. This is a difficult decision to make as we understand the importance of having a support person present for medical appointments. However, this decision was made to help ensure the health and safety of all patients, providers, and staff in our practice.

  • Phone and video calls during appointments will continue to be accepted and encouraged while this restriction is in place.
  • Exceptions may be made for minors who are patients, disabled patients, and medical conditions which need assistance.
  • Please contact administration if you have any questions.

We also do need to remind you that all persons are required to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth at all times while in the office. This policy is in effect regardless of any state, local, or federal guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding while we take all precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and stay focused on providing high-quality healthcare to you and all of our of patients.

Your Safety and Well-being is our Priority

On behalf of all of us at Women’s Health Partners, in these difficult times, we want to thank you for your support and confidence in our practice.

We want you to personally know that our patients’ health and well-being has and always will be our number one priority. This reminder bears repeating in the face of any challenges and especially now, given concerns posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being and that of our staff. To that end, we want to share some of the steps we are taking:

  • As a medical office we know how important cleanliness is and we have always maintained the highest standards of hygiene.
  • Every examination room is extensively cleaned after each patient. This includes wiping all surfaces with an EPA-registered disinfectant that is effective against COVID-19 (exam bed, counter-top, chair, equipment​, doorknob…)
  • All instruments are heat sterilized and wrapped. Disposable plastic speculums are used whenever possible.
  • Hand washing/sanitizing is strictly followed by us as well as our staff.
  • We kindly request that your wear a face-mask upon entering the facility. Our staff and clinicians will also be wearing masks.
  • Telehealth – We are also offering many types of appointments, that don’t necessarily require a traditional physical exam, to be done by TeleHealth.

Furthermore, our staff will be asking several screening questions regarding your health. We ask that you do not enter our office if you, or someone in your family, or someone you recently were in contact with, has exhibited flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe muscle aches, shaking chills, or recent loss of taste or smell, or recently diagnosed with COVID19.

In order to help us participate with our social distancing effort, we are asking patients to enter the office without any visitors, including children.

You will also have the option of waiting in your car instead of the waiting room after you have checked in. The front desk staff will call your cell phone when we are ready for you to come in for your visit.

Supporting Kids in Distress (2019)

Once again this holiday season, our entire staff donated holiday gifts and gave monetary support to Kids In Distress, an organization for underprivileged children in our community. Every year, we receive from the children a piece of “art work” created by them. These are displayed in our hallway by our lab in our Boca and Boynton office.

We take great joy in giving to this great organization. Kids In Distress helps thousands of children in need!
