Corona Virus Update

Updated 7/20/2020-

We have missed our patients and look forward to seeing every one of you again, whether that be in the office or during a virtual consultation.

We will be arranging your office visits in a way to reduce the number of patients in the office at any given time. We will be following the recommendations of the Tennessee Department of Health and the Surgeon General of the United States of America.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • To minimize the number of people in the office at one time, please come alone to your appointment.
  • If you just need to pick up a product you need, please order through our online store. You’ll still earn Reath Rewards Points.
  • If you feel unwell, let us know, and we will reschedule your appointment.
  • We will check your temperature as you check-in.
  • If you have been exposed to someone at risk for Covid-19 in the last two weeks, please reschedule your appointment.
  • We will be wearing cloth face masks for your protection, and we ask you to wear them as well.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available to you in many locations.
  • We will be sanitizing the exam rooms and common spaces after each patient visit.

Virtual Consultations and Follow-Up

If you would prefer to have a virtual visit, please use this form to request your consultation, and select the “virtual consultation” option. You can also call us during regular business hours, and we’ll get you all set up. All you need is a device with a camera (phone, tablet, or computer). Once we have you on the schedule, we’ll send you a link for your virtual visit.

Other Recommendations

We must all act wisely. Our efforts in our personal lives should be to limit the spread of Covid-19. If we make necessary sacrifices now, we hope to reduce the time course of these sacrifices. If we do not, we may be dealing with this for months to come. This is no exaggeration. We have not seen a public health crisis like this in our lifetimes.

Please consider the following:

  • Wear a mask and social distance however you can.
  • Do not gather in groups of 10 or more. Fewer is better.
  • If you have had contact with someone who is under investigation for Covid-19, consider self-quarantining.

Please continue to follow the CDC guidelines as listed below.

The Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following precautionary measures and guidelines to keep you healthy and prevent the spread of Coronavirus:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Keep away from others that are sick.
  • Avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places.
  • Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
  • Clean and disinfect household objects and surfaces in your home.
  • Avoid all non-essential travel.

According to the CDC, if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.

As this is a fluid and rapidly changing situation, we will update this regularly as the need arises. Please take care of yourself and your family members.

All the best,
