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, cough or other CODIV-19 symptoms.
  • Posting signs in our entrance way stating that anyone who has a fever, cough or any COVID-19 symptoms must 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 remain open and providing essential reproductive healthcare for our patients during this challenging time, while minimizing risk of infection for our patients and staff. With this in mind, we ask that you:

Please tell our staff if you have any health conditions when you make your appointment online or over the phone. If you are flying in to Chicago from out of state or it will take you 3+ hours to drive to our office please let our staff know when you schedule your appointment.

We are only allowing patients in our offices 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. You may wait with them in the car when you are not being seen by our staff.

Unless you have a medical condition that makes it impossible, you must wear a face mask or cloth face covering while in our offices.

If your guest / support person has to sign paperwork or make a payment on your behalf they may come in the office briefly.

We thank you in advance for your patience at your visit, as we may have limited staff some days. Please do not make your appointment on a day when you have other plans or obligations.
