The safety, health and well-being of our patients and team members are always our top priorities, but particularly in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Please know that we are closely monitoring the situation and following the guidelines from the CDC (Center for Disease Control), FDA (Federal Drug Administration), ASRM (American Society of Reproductive Medicine) and local public health agencies as we continue to provide our patients with excellent care.
Be aware that the COVID-19 situation is very dynamic and policies and procedures are subject to change as the climate of this pandemic changes. Please reach out at (817) 540-1157 with any questions.

Everyday Hygiene and Prevention
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces – especially mobile devices – using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
- Practice social distancing, following guidelines of the CDC, health agencies and local authorities.
- Stay home if you are sick or feeling unwell until you are symptom free for at least 24 hours. If you are well but have family members who are sick, you should self-quarantine yourself until symptom free. If you have been in areas where suspected infections have been reported, please stay home!
- If you are in an “at risk health category,” you should avoid meetings or places with greater than ten people.
- Re-evaluate any travel to areas with risk of community spread.
