USA Fibroid Centers: Responding to COVID-19
There has recently been a lot of concern surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. As medical professionals, our patient’s health and safety remain our top priorities. As major cities are being told to stay home, we are working harder than ever to ensure our facilities are sanitized and disinfected properly.
Our doctors, specialists, and front desk administrators are consistently sanitizing, cleaning and disinfecting all our medical equipment and highly-trafficked areas thoroughly, before, during, and after each patient visit.
Our Precautionary Measures:
- Taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and well-being of our patients and staff
- Ensuring medical equipment is cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before, during, and after each patient visit
- Pre-screening our patients prior to their appointments
- Conducting on-site wellness checkups to verify the health of each patient before treatment
- Increasing precautions at our clinics located in areas in state of emergency
- Increasing sanitation of high-traffic areas
- Emphasizing the importance of employee’s personal hygiene
Why Uterine Fibroid Treatment Should Not Be Delayed
Due to the nature of uterine fibroids and the potential for the condition to become more complicated, we encourage women struggling with this condition to go through with the recommended treatment to avoid developing any issues. Although it’s important to understand the risks of COVID-19 exposure, we assure you that you’re in good, safe, (and clean) hands when you visit one of our clinics.
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that are not usually life-threatening. However, due to their position in the uterus, fibroids have the potential to cause serious health complications:
- Interferes with fertility
- Risk to surrounding organs
- Extreme cramping
- Excessive bleeding that can lead to anemia
- As fibroids grow in size, it can affect the effectiveness of treatment
Due to the painful symptoms caused by uterine fibroids, many women find themselves having to miss work frequently. We know that during this time, many people are out of work because of COVID-19. We wouldn’t want you to have to miss even more work from your fibroids because you delayed treatment.
