Update: Dental Appointments Restricted to Emergency Care Only

Effective 3/16/2020-03/26/2020
It has been recommended that elective dental procedures, including hygiene appointments, be postponed during this time due to recent developments with COVID-19 and the
continued spread of the virus. We are limiting patient care to emergency dental procedures only and will operate Monday-Thursday (03/16/2020-03/26/2020) 8:30am – 2:30pm to treat emergency patients and answer patient questions. A dental emergency can be defined as a non-stop pain that keeps a patient from sleeping, swelling, and infection. For further questions regarding your Dental care please call 304-236-5902 ext. 4.

Update: New Visitor Procedure

Effective 3/18/2020
Please help us help you and others. Social distancing is a critically important component of reducing the transmission of infectious agents, including COVID-19. While Williamson
Health and Wellness Center continues to see sick and well patients, we have instituted an immediate policy whereby patients are asked to come to appointments alone if they can safely do so. If you cannot come to an appointment alone, visitors accompanying you must be limited to one. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Frequently Asked Questions


What should I do if I think I have COVID-19?
We ask that you make every effort to call Williamson Health and Wellness Center to notify us that you will be coming in. We will ask you more questions and give you advice on
when and/or where to be seen.

 

What about facemasks?
Please wear a facemask to your appointment if you have one. When arriving at any Williamson Health and Wellness Center entrance you will be screened. If specific criteria is met, you will be given a facemask.

 

Who should I bring with me to my appointment if I think I have COVID-19?
We ask that you come to your appointment alone if you can do so safely. We want to minimize the potential for transmission, and distancing yourself from friends and family while sick can help. We also want to ensure that we have adequate space in our waiting rooms and exam rooms to safely care for all. If you are unable to safely come to your appointment alone, please limit to number of companions to one if possible.

 

I’m not sick or worried that I have COVID-19, but I have an appointment soon at Williamson Health and Wellness Center. Should I come in?
No. If you are not sick or having any immediate health related problems, please call our office to reschedule your appointment. If you need a refill on medication, please inform the staff during the call and we will send those in during this time to ensure that your medication regimen is not interrupted. We are taking significant steps to ensure that our patients are accommodated for their appointments in a safe and comfortable environment.
