To ensure a safe care environment, AOA is allowing one visitor per patient to accompany the patient to the exam room. If an interpreter is necessary, we may limit the total number of people with the patient. Visitors must be over the age of 16 and meet screening criteria prior to entering the facility.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as AOA stays committed to the health and wellbeing of our patients and everyone we serve.
