COVID-19

Our community has been through a lot during Covid-19, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.  While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same:  Our commitment to your safety.

As we continue to adapt to the changing nature of COVID-19, our office follows the CDC's guidance for healthcare settings.  This means MASKS ARE REQUIRED in our waiting area, and we'd appreciate it if you remember to bring one with you to your appointment.  We will have masks available if you forget.

Your health and safety are our top priorities, and our practice will adhere to strict COVID-19 safety protocols like wearing proper personal protective equipment (including masks) and following enhanced cleaning protocols during your exam or procedure to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment.  We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.  For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions.  

  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office.  You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.


We look forward to seeing you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.  To make an appointment, please call our office at 219-736-2300.


Thank you for being our patients.  We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you to our practice.  


Sincerely,


Dr. Michael H. Min and Team
