ELECTIVE SURGERY UPDATE: Governor Ricketts has lifted the restrictions on elective surgery in Nebraska starting May 4th, 2020. ENT Specialties is tentatively planning to resume elective surgeries at Physicians Surgical Center beginning the week of May 11th. We are in the process of ensuring that there will be adequate testing and protective equipment (PPE) available that will be required for our surgeons, staff and patients. Because many of our surgeries are higher risk for aerosol spread of the novel Coronavirus, we will be requiring pre-operative COVID-19 testing on some patients. The Physicians will be reviewing their schedules to try to accommodate patients with the most time-sensitive issues first. Patients will be contacted by our surgery schedulers to schedule their date for surgery in the coming days to weeks.

APPOINTMENTS: We will also begin to schedule routine office appointments in the near future. Our office has been working hard to make changes to comply with CDC guidelines to keep you safe when you visit for your appointment:

  • Upon arrival, we will take your temperature
  • All individuals will be screened at the door for any COVID-19 symptoms and travel history
  • We ask that you please limit one parent or guardian per child, and no additional children
  • Social distance in the lobby area
  • We ask that all individuals wear a mask to the office, including children over 2 years old if they are able. Please bring a mask from home if possible.
  • If you have a fever of 100.4º or higher, we will reschedule your appointment to a later date or transition you to our telemedicine program
  • We will continue to offer telemedicine appointments and would be happy to “see” you in this way moving forward when possible, especially if you are feeling ill or are travelling from out of town. If you are travelling from a county that has a directive health measure in place, we may ask you to schedule a telemedicine appointment or be seen at a later date.
  • Due to the high risk of aerosolization of the virus from procedures in the nose and throat, we will still likely have limitations on office procedures such as nasal and throat scopes.

The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Please continue to have patience with us as we work through this unprecedented time. We look forward to seeing you!
