Dear Patients,

As concerns with the COVID-19 crisis continue, Parris and Associates is committed to providing the safest care for our patients in accordance with recommendations from local public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Starting August 3, 2020, we will resume office hours and infusions in our Lawrenceville location and continue office hours and infusions at our Lilburn location. We will continue our safety measures with screening temperatures and a questionnaire when patients arrive for appointments. Patients may be asked to return home or get tested for COVID-19 at a designated location. During this time, we ask that only essential family members accompany patients to their appointments. We also require that masks be worn by all persons entering our offices. We will provide a disposable mask if a patient or family member does not have one.

We are still offering telemedicine/telehealth appointments. With changing insurance coverage, patients may be informed that telehealth is no longer covered by their insurance, and it may be necessary to change to an in-office visit. Self-pay is certainly an option for those patients who prefer telehealth and their insurance no longer covers the service. Patients can continue to reach our office by phone and through portal messages.

For the safety of patients who are seen in our office, we are continuing our safety measures by frequently cleaning and sanitizing patient rooms, rest rooms, waiting areas, and practicing social distancing.

We do ask that you continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC including:

  • Frequent hand washing for 20 seconds
  • Covering mouth and nose while coughing/sneezing and disposing of used tissue
  • Avoiding others who are sick
  • Avoiding large crowds
  • Avoiding non-essential travel (including overseas travel and cruises)

Until further notice, our Suwanee satellite location will be closed. Patients can reschedule appointments to one of our other locations.

This is an evolving process and we will continue to provide you with more details and any changes to our process in the office. We apologize for any inconvenience that our temporary changes have caused. Thank you for continuing to put your faith in Parris and Associates.
