COVID-19 Information



We hope that everyone has continued to stay safe during this difficult time. We have been closely monitoring national and statewide developments in the COVID-19 pandemic and have been actively updating our guidelines in order to provide all of our patients with safe and high quality care.

Our office is open during regular business hours, Mon-Fri 8am – 5pm. We are offering in-person clinic visits for all Ear, Nose and Throat issues. Call our office at 205-838-3755 to schedule!

Our waiting room has been fully opened for seating. All patients will still have the option of waiting in their vehicle if this is preferred. If waiting in your vehicle, please call our office once you arrive in order to check in. A member of our staff will personally come and escort you to your appointment.

We are prepared with measures from the CDC guidelines for reducing exposure risk.

-Antiseptic cleaning of each room following each individual patient encounter.

-Standard PPE (personal protective equipment) will be used in all patient encounters.


COVID-19 Testing

We will continue to offer in-office COVID-19 PCR testing at our office in Birmingham/Trussville. If you or your family member is interested in testing, please call our office to receive instructions on your testing appointment. Same day appointments are available!

Testing will be performed in-office via nasopharyngeal swab. When you arrive, please check in at the front desk to notify the staff that you have arrived. One of our physicians will perform the test and a member of our staff will then contact you with the results, typically within 3-5 days.

Note: PCR testing is performed to screen for active infection. We do NOT currently offer the COVID-19 antibody test or the rapid test.

As always, our number one concern is patient safety and well-being. Thank you all for your support and understanding throughout this unprecedented time. We are honored and proud to be trusted with your care.
