NOI will now require each patient and visitor to wear a face covering prior to entering the office & for the entire duration of their visit. The face covering, or mask, must fully cover the nose and mouth. Due to limited supplies, NOI will not be able to supply masks or face coverings to patients. If a patient does not have a face covering, they will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

As a medical provider servicing our community during this unprecedented time, we are focused on resource preservation for our staff. For this reason we are unable to provide masks or gloves to patients. Should you have an active cough we respectfully request that you make a virtual appointment with your provider or wait to a time that you are asymptomatic to visit our office.

We appreciate your understanding during this time.
