For Our Patients

 

Due to the recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, Great Plains Women's Health Clinic is taking the necessary precautions to create a safe environment for our patients. We are very sorry-but given the potential risk of transmissions of the COVID-19 virus, we are trying to limit the number of individuals in the clinic at any time. This is to protect our vulnerable patient population.

 

We are able to see minors who present with a single parent/guardian and we are allowing the significant other to be present for the anatomy sonogram and appointment afterwards to discuss results for our OB patients. Otherwise, patients are to present and be evaluated for their appointments individually (alone). This is anticipated to last for approximately 2-3 weeks. Thank you very much for your understanding.

 

If you are unable to attend your appointment due to these restrictions, please call us and we will work on finding a solution.

 

Also if you have a cough, temperature greater than 100.4 or shortness of breath-please call before presenting to your appointment.
