Is Dr. Rodman still operating? YES! The recent order to limit elective surgeries in Houston does not apply to outpatient facilities.
We wanted to offer a clarification regarding the announcement by Texas Governor Abbott last week. He did announce that hospitals will be limiting elective procedures in Harris County (Houston, TX) to keep beds open for COVID-19 patients. This limit only applies at hospitals, not at the ambulatory surgical centers that we routinely utilize. These are world class facilities, and they are for surgery patients only.
Since the pandemic started, Dr. Rodman has only been utilizing centers that do not have active emergency or urgent care facilities, and do not house patients infected with COVID-19. The facilities have an excellent working relationship with Face Forward, and take excellent care of patients. They are performing testing on all patients and staff, have increased cleaning and ventilation, and are spacing out patients and limiting contact.
In the office we are making every effort to eliminate the chance of exposure to COVID-19, including wearing masks, keeping appointments spaced apart and disinfecting rooms between each patient.
We go above & beyond to keep you and Dr Rodman as safe as possible at all times. If you have a procedure planned or were considering a surgery in the near future, you may schedule with full confidence. If you have further questions, please call us at 713 321 2424.
