ELECTIVE SURGERY UPDATE: Governor Ricketts lifted the restrictions on elective surgery in Nebraska starting May 4th, 2020. ENT Specialties has resumed elective surgeries at this time. 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. This is decided by our surgeons on a case-by-case basis.

APPOINTMENTS: We are currently scheduling most types of in-office appointments. We continue to work hard and make any changes needed to comply with CDC guidelines to keep you safe when you visit for your appointment, including by not limited to:

  • Upon arrival, we will take your temperature
  • All individuals will be screened at the door for any COVID-19 symptoms (please see common symptoms below)
  • We ask that you please limit one parent or guardian per child, and no additional children
  • Social distance in the lobby area
  • We require all individuals to 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.
  • Due to the high risk of aerosolization of the virus from procedures in the nose and throat, we may still have limitations on office procedures such as nasal and throat scopes.

Please ask yourself the following questions prior to scheduling an appointment:

  1. Are you currently experiencing any of the following symptoms of COVID-19:
    1. Fever or chills
    2. New onset cough
    3. Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    4. Fatigue
    5. Muscle or body aches
    6. Headache
    7. New loss of taste or smell
    8. Nausea or vomiting
    9. Diarrhea
  2. Have you been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
  3. Have you had a positive COVID-19 test or do you currently have a pending COVID-19 test?

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!
