   COVID 19 CHANGES TO OUR OFFICE PROTOCOLS 

Our office staff will continue to work diligently to schedule patients in a responsible way to reduce exposure to viruses by limiting the number of patients in the office at any given time and reducing patient time in the office. Each patient is instructed to remain in their vehicle upon arrival and to call the office number so case histories can be done over the phone. Masks are also required at all times while in the building. Should you have an immediate concern regarding your eye health and are unable to come into the office, Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Quackenbush can provide telehealth consults via Facetime, ZOOM and/or Skype. For telehealth services, please contact our office at 423-843-2020 during normal office hours. For after hours or weekend  emergencies, call Dr. Quackenbush at 423-463-4332 or Dr. Rhodes at 423-870-2200.
