Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our patients, staff and community, Eye Care Services the office of Dr. Marc Austhof is following the Guidelines of the American Optometric Association and the CDC. We are postponing all routine eye care and suspending all clinical operations with the exception of urgent or emergencies.
These are not decisions that are made lightly, but are intended to protect the health of the general public. The discontinuation of eye care eliminates potential contact of persons who may transmit the COVID-19 virus and widen the spread of it in the community. It also conserves valuable medical supplies - particularly personal protective equipment like gowns, gloves, and masks - that may be needed in the event of a worsening public health crisis that strains supply chains. These actions also protect and conserve medical personnel who likewise may be called upon for additional duty in a scenario of widening strain on health care system.
We understand that these cancellations cause inconvenience and frustration. Dr. Austhof is taking calls daily at the following number 231-944-6420. Please feel free to call or text this number and he will answer or get back with you shortly. We can also be reached by email email@example.com.
For all our contact lens patients in need of contacts please leave a message and we can call you and set up direct shipment to your home.
For all medication refills please email or call and include your date of birth and your pharmacy's phone number and will call those in as quickly as we can.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this difficult time. We are committed to keeping our patients, staff and community safe. Thank you for choosingthe office of Dr. Marc Austhof. It is our pleasure to continue to serve you during this difficult time. Currently, we plan to reopen our offices on May 18.
