Dedicated to Your Safety
So much has changed in recent months. But we are here, with the same commitment to your health that we’ve always had. You can always count on us to keep you safe and keep you well.
We want to keep you informed about everything we are doing to keep you and your loved ones safe before and during your visit. Your health and well-being are our top priorities. Whether you visit us for a routine check-up or undergo a procedure, we are here to address all your healthcare needs safely.
We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases, so our infection-prevention protocols are rigorous and time-tested. Our Quality Assurance and Infection Prevention team are in continuous contact with public health officials. We continue to monitor COVID-19 developments closely.
To ensure your care is performed safely, we are adhering to stringent guidelines established by the:
- Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
- California Department of Public Health (CDPH)
- Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (SBCPHD)
- American College of Surgeons and other trusted medical association
We are focused on creating the safest possible environment for care. We have added to our already stringent safety protocols to ensure you continue to receive excellent and safe care for your next visit.
