Elective surgery is permitted in Texas. Governor Abbott’s message was misinterpreted. Hospitals may perform elective surgery as long as they retain 15% capacity for Covid-19. His order did not pertain to surgery centers.
We have been back seeing patients and operating since May and things are running more smoothly. We have modified our processes to protect everyone, so appointments are spaced to keep the lobby empty, we are screening patients, and we are all wearing masks. Otherwise, nothing has changed! We apologize for any delay in calling you back or for longer wait times. We promise to improve as we get back to normal!
We look forward to seeing you and your friends and family again soon!
