New Jersey Urology’s team of physicians, clinical and office staff are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis with the assistance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the local health departments in the areas in which we serve. We want to assure you that our team is doing all that we can to keep our patients and employees safe.
The health and safety of our patients has always been and remains our top priority, and we will continue to serve our communities and provide our services for as long as we are able.

WE ARE HERE
At New Jersey Urology, we take very seriously our obligation to stay open and care for our patients. Our ability to treat kidney stones, UTIs, cancer patients and others alleviates the burden currently placed on our hospitals and urgent care centers so that they can concentrate on dealing with the effects of the virus. To that end, we will remain open for our patients as long as we are provided the guidance to do so by the CDC and local officials.
As of right now we are continuing our normal hours and are working hard to ensure that our patients are spread out over as many hours as possible. We have new procedures in place to ensure that you will not experience a prolonged wait time in the waiting room and will be able see your provider quickly.
We are asking our patients to arrive for their appointment either alone or with no more than one individual, over the age of 18.
Additionally, you may choose to wait in the car or outside the waiting room after registering with us. To facilitate this, we will ask for your mobile number at the time of check in and call you when the doctor is ready to see you.
CLEANING OF OUR FACILITIES
- We have removed all magazines from the waiting area and are sanitizing all check-in tablets between patients (for those offices using this technology).
- We clean and disinfect each patient room before and after every patient visit.
- Door knobs, desks, counters, frequently touched areas and equipment are wiped down and disinfected repeatedly throughout the day. iPads that you use are disinfected after each patient.
- The waiting room is cleaned at least hourly.
- Hand sanitizer is readily available at check-in and exam rooms, and hand-washing may be done in our exam rooms and bathroom facilities.
PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT
If you are currently experiencing flu-like or respiratory symptoms and have been to China, Iran, Italy, Japan or South Korea in the last 14 days, or had any exposure to someone diagnosed with the coronavirus, please reschedule your appointment and contact your primary care physician.
