The Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak

Family Planning Associates Medical Group (FPA) Response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak

Quality Compassionate Reproductive Health Care Personalized to Fit Your Needs

What Family Planning Associates is Doing Now in Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak

At Family Planning Associates (FPA) we strive everyday to provide safe, quality medical care. In recent weeks there have been a lot of changes because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

We have made the following changes to help minimize the spread of coronavirus:

  • Thoroughly cleaning all surfaces throughout our offices every evening
  • Disinfecting surfaces that are frequently touched, like door knobs, pens and clip boards routinely throughout the day
  • Educating staff on COVID-19 symptoms and preventative measures
  • Mandating that our employees stay home if they have any signs of illness
  • Making sure that hand sanitizer is available for our staff and patients and keeping all bathrooms stocked with soap
  • Texting patients before their appointment to ask that they not come into the office if they have a fever or cough
  • Posting signs in our entrance way stating that anyone who has a fever, cough or any cold/flu symptoms leave the office immediately and call our office to reschedule
  • Limiting the number of guests in our offices

Requests for Patients and Guests of FPA

Our goal is to provide essential reproductive healthcare for our patients, without any interruption. With this in mind, we ask that you:

  • Call us 312-707-8988, if you have a fever of 100.0 or more, a cough, difficulty breathing, muscle pains throughout your body, and/or diarrhea or if you have been exposed to the coronavirus (COVID-19) as we will not be able to see you as a patient at this time
  • Have your guest / support person drop you off for your appointment and come back to pick you up later, or have them wait in the car just outside the office
  • We are only allowing patients in our offices at this time but if your guest / support person has to sign paperwork or make a payment on your behalf they may come in the office briefly
  • Please be patient at your visit as we may have limited staff some days

Limit or Delay Visits When Possible

If you need to cancel or reschedule your visit please let out staff know as soon as possible. You can call us or email us for your convenience. If you are uncomfortable providing personal information online, you can always call us.

When medically appropriate FPA will:

  • Offer refills on birth control without an immediate exam
  • Provide a phone consultations for patients who would normally return to the office for a follow-up visit

If you are ill, and we request that you not come into our office, we will make every effort to reschedule your visit for a date and time that is convenient for you. We can provide you a note for work or school prior to the visit stating that you have a scheduled appointment.

On the Day of Your Appointment

Please do not come into our office for your appointment if you have been exposed to cononavirus (COVID-19) or if you have a fever of 100.0 or greater, a cough, difficulty breathing, muscle pain/soreness, and/or diarrhea.

  • When you enter the office please use hand sanitizer
  • After checking in and completing your initial paperwork, please let our staff know if you prefer to wait in your car and we will call you when it is your turn to be seen
  • Only patients will be allowed in the office at this time unless they are needed to make a payment on your behalf or to sign paperwork – you will still need to make arrangements for safe transportation home and may not drive yourself
  • Please know that we are frequently cleaning all surfaces to help reduce risk, but we encourage you to wash your hands and/or sanitize throughout your visit
  • We will be limiting patient interactions as much as possible, but please practice social distancing when/if you share space with other patients

Contact Us to Cancel / Reschedule
