-Sinus pressure

-Runny nose

-Sore throat-

-Cough

-Chest congestion

Please do not come to the office with any of these symptoms to limit your exposure. If you are concerned that you might have been exposed to COVID-19, call our office for a Video Appointment.

Remember, if you’re having a medical emergency go directly to the ER.
