To protect our patients and our health care team, we have implemented the following protocols:
All members of both the gastroenterology practice and the Endoscopy Center undergo Covid-19 testing every 2 weeks to ensure that no one is an asymptomatic carrier of the virus.
We ask all patients and employees to wear face masks while at the North Jersey Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Center.
Patients and health team members are screened with temperature checks upon entering the building. Patients and team members are asked not to enter the building if they have any symptoms of Covid 19 such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or feeling unwell.
Patients are asked to arrive without visitors. Exceptions are made for minors and patients who require an aide or assistant.
Social distancing is practiced at our office. Seats are blocked off in our waiting room to prevent crowding.
There are plastic barriers at our reception desks to further protect our receptionists.
All patients undergoing endoscopy procedures are required to go for Covid-19 nasal swab testing 3 days prior to the scheduled exam.
