Emotional Wellbeing for Adults, Adolescents, Seniors
MBC updates related to COVID-19
Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months, 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 Practice's commitment to your safety.
We will temporarily continue practicing telehealth for the month of June. During the month of June, we are back in the office 3 days a week. In July, we will fully return to the office, 5 days a week.
During this time, we have implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
1) Masks are required to be worn by everyone entering our offices. Our doctors and staff will be wearing masks as well.
2) We have hand sanitizer in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed..
3) We ask that you remain in your vehicle when you arrive, text us at 770-580-0706 to let us know you have arrived, and wait to receive a message from us asking you to come in.
4) You may see that our waiting room will have limited seating available to allow for social distancing, and will no longer offer magazines, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Thank you for being a part of the Metro Behavioral Care patient community. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to seeing you again. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
