Our three office locations continue to operate within our normal business hours, including the WW White location. We will reopen Saturday walk-in clinic this weekend May 16, 2020.In an effort to maintain a clean and safe environment at all our locations.

Our Floresville location, we will not see any patient with fever, or upper or lower respiratory tract symptoms (cough, fever, postnasal drip, sore throat, or sinus congestion).

Our Southcross and WW White locations will see all patients. All Patients will be pre-screened outside, prior to entering our practice locations. Any patients presenting with fever, or the above respiratory tract symptoms will be seen and treated in an ancillary location outside the main office, to prevent potential symptom transmission from any sick patients.

Please follow guidance from our posted signs and our staff members when arriving to the offices for treatment.

As always, please call for any questions – 210 447-3033, 210 648-9500

The City of San Antonio and Bexar county has extended the shelter in place order until April 30th, 2020. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend cloth mask for any person going out in public.
