COVID-19 Guest policy and screening process
Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our patients and employees, Phoenix Perinatal Associates will allow one adult guest to accompany patients into our practices for their appointments. All patients and guests are required to wear a mask for the duration of the appointment. In addition, our practices have implemented a new screening process to minimize risk to patients and employees. We ask that all patients arrive early for their appointments to accommodate this screening process.
