Summer Safety Tips

BEEP BEEP BEEP! Construction at CMO

This spring at CMO we are doing a little spring cleaning of our own. Our renovation includes creating new downstairs exam rooms and updating our waiting room. We are working to make our office safer, brighter, and friendlier, while improving accessibility to all our patients and families.

 

Unfortunately, renovation is messy work. Your safety is our primary concern and we will keep our common spaces and exam rooms tidy. However, be advised to anticipate some disruption to the normal flow in the office. We will do our best to get you out of our waiting space and into rooms as fast as we can – please be patient with us.

 

Some patients may be particularly sensitive to loud or unexpected noises. If you have specific concerns about your child in this environment, please reach out to us before your appointment and we will work with you to make specific accommodations.

 

Thank you for your understanding.  We can’t wait to share our new updated space with you.

 

Best,

The providers and staff at CMO
