COVID-19 Update

Lone Star Endoscopy is observing the CDC’s recommended preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Our number one priority is the safety of our patients and staff. We have implemented the following measures to ensure safety:

  • Before your procedure, we ask that you self-monitor for Covid-19 like symptoms. If you notice fever or develop any symptoms, please call us immediately. We will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • We ask that all of our patients arrive at our facility masked. We will be wearing masks too!
  • We continue to limit visitors in the building to ensure the safety of all of our patients. Visitors will be allowed to wait in the lobby but only 1 masked visitor can join you in recovery while you wake up and speak to the physician if you chose.
  • We will use social distancing to protect you while you’re in our care with strategic scheduling of patients to limit numbers and wait time in our common areas to patient placement for procedure and recovery. In addition to this, we are disinfecting high touch areas and adhering to all equipment and environmental infection control guidelines.

We are asking patients to join us in additional efforts, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before and after eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and sanitize your hands
  • Avoid shaking hands to potentially prevent transmission
