Covid-19

Due to the constant changes in the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we are committed to deliver the care our patients need in a safe way.   We will update this page with new information as it is available to us.

 

Vaccine Availability and Eligibility:

R&B Medical Group has not received any of the Covid-19 vaccine to give to our patients. We are encouraging patients to visit coronavirus.health.ny.gov to find local vaccine sites across WNY and confirm your eligibility.

Safety Guidelines When visiting our Offices:

To keep you and our staff safe, we have put the following safeguards in place. Please follow these when in our office, to help us all stay safe. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Patients will be prescreened prior to their visit to ensure anyone with symptoms consistent with a risk of COVID infection do not come to the office.

Everyone must wear a face mask the entire time you are in our office. This includes the waiting room, and exam rooms. If your provider needs you to remove your mask, you will be instructed to do so.

Patients will have their temperature taken and answer additional Covid-19 specific questions upon arrival.

We are limiting the office visits to the patient only.  If you require a companion at your visit, please make sure only one person accompanies you and is also wearing a facemask.

Our office is continuing our regular practice of sanitizing each room after patients are seen.

Our staff is wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure everyone’s safety.

Hand sanitizer stations are located at our entrance, and throughout the office.

Keep a safe space (6 feet) between yourself and others while waiting in line, sitting in our waiting area and waiting for and riding the elevators.

New & expanded virtual care (telemedicine) options:

If you are unable to come into our office you may be able to convert your appointment to a video visit.  Call your provider’s office to determine if this would be an option for you.
