Everyone here at Walnut Hill wants you and your family to stay safe during this time. With that in mind, we are going to be rescheduling our medicare patients and we have closed our office located in the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. If you are an obstetric patient who normally visits that office, you will now be coming into our main office across the street.
We’d like to recap important information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the COVID-19 virus and what measures to take to prevent and treat your symptoms.
There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19, so the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
Preventing Exposure to COVID-19
- Practice social distancing — Avoid crowded public areas and transportation and large events over 50 people. Also, keep some distance physically — at least six feet away from others — when going out into public. Please restrict hugs and handshakes.
- Wash your hands frequently — Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds. Keep hand sanitizer available in case there is nowhere to wash your hands.
- Avoid touching your face, nose, and eyes.
- Stay home if you can — You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care and to get necessities for the home.

If you Feel Symptoms of Coronavirus:
If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and other symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your doctor for medical advice. Immediately self-quarantine yourself until you’re tested and use tissues to cover your mouth while coughing and sneezing. The CDC has guidelines for healing at home while minimizing the spread of the virus.
We want to help keep your family safe and prevent COVID-19 from spreading. Please be careful and stay on top of the latest CDC recommendations. See below for some helpful contact information and links that are updated regularly.
