COVID-19 Update: Effective May 1, 2020, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and NCDHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen have allowed elective and non-urgent surgery to be performed in our state. Certain guidelines have to be followed including: an assessment of the medical necessity of the procedure, maintaining protective personal equipment, protecting the exposure of patients and staff, and screening for COVID-19 related symptoms. Dr. Erickson has resumed surgery as recommended by state guidelines.
Dr. Erickson and his office staff will continue to take precautions by screening our patients and staff for COVID-19 symptoms, limiting visitors accompanying patients, asking patients and staff to wear a face covering, practice social distancing when possible, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces. We are also offering TELEMEDICINE for patients who do not wish to come in to the office.
