Important Announcements

 
Our goal is to ensure you are informed with the most up-to-date information available. As guidelines surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) are developing and evolving rapidly, we continue to work with collective agility alongside the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) and local governing agencies to provide the highest quality of care in an environment of absolute safety.

Given these ever-changing circumstances, we anticipate regularly updating information on our website to ensure messaging is timely. In light of our goal to provide the most up-to-date and transparent information, this page is expected to change as new information is available. Please check back often for the most recent guidelines and information.
 

Patient Update

At Lexington Clinic, we strive to provide the highest quality of health care for our patients. At this time, we are requesting our patients to limit the number of people accompanying them. If you feel you must be accompanied by someone to your scheduled appointment, please ensure that it is only one person, who does not display any symptoms of COVID-19 like fever or cough, with or without shortness of breath.
 
Working together, we are confident that these measures will help us succeed in managing the spread of COVID-19 within our facility while balancing the needs of our patients.
