After much consideration, and in an effort to protect the well-being of our community, we have made a decision to implement caregiver and visitor limitations at all MOH clinics that include:
No Visitors are allowed in the clinics
Only 1 caregiver can accompany a patient in the practice if they have no upper respiratory symptoms - upper respiratory symptoms include: a cough, fever of 101.1 and above, nasal congestion, runny nose or sore throat
Children age 15 or younger are not allowed in the clinic until further notice
The health and safety of our MOH patients and staff is our top priority. We recognize that these visitor limitations may cause concerns, so if you feel you have a special circumstance, please notify the front desk so a manager can discuss your situation.Visitors with flu-like symptoms are not permitted to visit our offices in order to protect patients and staff.

Malignant mesothelioma is a disease in which cancer cells are found in the pleura, the thin layer of tissue that lines the chest cavity and covers the lungs or the peritoneum, the thin layer of tissue that lines the abdomen and covers most of the organs in the abdomen.
Many people with malignant mesothelioma have worked or lived in places where they inhaled or swallowed asbestos. After being exposed to asbestos, it usually takes a long time for malignant mesothelioma to form. Other risk factors for malignant mesothelioma include:
Living with a person who works near asbestos.
Being exposed to a certain virus.
