Accord Physicians Urology: COVID-19 Safety Procedures

Accord Physicians Urology is dedicated to the health and safety of our patients and staff.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have instituted stringent safety measures at both our Brooklyn and Queens locations. They allow us to responsibly provide all of our high-quality urology services without risk to patients, doctors, nurses and other staff members.

All of our offices are occupied by Accord Physicians Urology group only. We are not sharing office space with other doctors.

We have significantly reduced patient volume and wait time in common areas.

Social Distancing

We are practicing safe social distancing at all of our facilities, with policies even stricter than New York State and federal policies.

  • All Accord Physicians staff will remain separated by at least six feet from patients and from each other.
  • We have expanded our waiting areas, making it easier for patients to maintain social distancing in complete comfort.
  • We are monitoring the density of patients in all areas of our facilities, to ensure proper separation.
  • We are asking all patients to enter our facilities by themselves while family members or friends wait outside, so we can limit building occupancy and allow for safe social distancing. (Naturally, home health attendants and translators are exceptions to this rule.)

Health Checks and Cleanliness

We have implemented strict screening and cleaning regimens at Accord Physicians facilities, to protect all patients and staff members.

  • We are screening for COVID-19 symptoms and conducting temperature checks at all entrances, using contactless forehead thermometers.
  • All medical personnel, staff and patients are required to wear face masks inside our facilities.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are mounted throughout our hallways, and patients and staff are encouraged to use them frequently.
  • Our clinics are continuously cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.
  • Our air filtration systems utilize both HEPA filters and UV light, minimizing the presence of contaminants and allergens in all facilities.

Accord Physicians Urology is committed to these important safety measures throughout the pandemic. We appreciate the cooperation of all patients in helping us accomplish our shared goal: keeping our facilities safe and COVID-19 free.
