The safety of our research volunteers and staff is a top priority and we have taken action to ensure we provide a safe environment for everyone. Currently, both our offices (Vandalia and Springboro) remain OPEN but we have modified some of our patient management protocols as precautionary steps in preventing coronavirus COVID-19 spreading.
Call your doctor: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.
What to Expect for Patients
- Reminder Calls: As usual, we will be making day-prior appointment reminder calls. During this call, we will be asking a series of questions to assess the risk factor related to COVID-19. If you are sick with a respiratory or gastrointestinal (stomach) illness, please notify your study coordinator before coming to the facility for your study visit. You might be given special instructions for your visit or asked to reschedule.
- For anybody visiting the site, you will be asked several questions about your health and possible exposure to anyone who is sick. We will also take your temperature when you enter the facility. You MAY BE REQUIRED to wear a mask during your visit and will be asked to wash your hands upon arrival.
- We are cleaning each exam room thoroughly after each patient visit. We also have a daily sanitation service in our facilities.
Thank you for your support in helping create a safe environment for everyone. If you have questions or need to contact your study coordinator, call us at 937-223-4229.
