Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
LMG-POSM recommends that non-vaccinated patients/staff wear masks, but will not “enforce” that anyone wear a mask at this time. Patients/ staff members who wish to wear masks are welcome to do so, and patients may request that their physician/provider wear a mask during the appointment. Front desk employees will continue to allow patients to wait for their appointment outside, or in their automobile if the patient prefers (staff will call the patient on their cell phone when the physician is ready to see the patient).
We encourage everyone to continue assessing their personal risk and comfort level with masking. We will continue to follow CDC exposure guidelines for staff members. The above may change immediately if the infection rate in our metropolitan area changes.

About our clinic
