COVID-19 Safety Precautions
What precautions are Millennium’s offices taking to protect me from COVID-19?
Millennium is keeping you – our patients, our healthcare providers and team members as safe as possible by rigorously following established safety guidelines, along with developing innovative solutions to new challenges as they arise.
Millennium uses EPA-approved disinfectants for COVID-19 that are continuously effective for 24 hours to clean frequently touched surfaces, such as countertops, doorknobs, pens, and tablets, as well as exam rooms at least once a day. Additionally, hand sanitizer is made available throughout our offices.
Social Distancing, Face Coverings and Masks:
The CDC recommends wearing masks in public that are made of two or more layers, and which completely cover your nose and mouth. Millennium provides personal protective equipment (PPE) to all team members across our locations and requires all patients and visitors wear face coverings while in our offices. Please note the use of gloves is indicated when treating patients suspected of COVID-19, but not when treating well patients.
We are taking appropriate social-distancing measures in our waiting rooms, such as marked 6-foot distances between patients in line and creating more space inside our offices. Unfortunately, this also means limiting visitors, unless you require special assistance.
Our Telehealth Service MPG Connect:
Millennium successfully developed and launched our telehealth virtual visit service, called MPG Connect, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our physicians complete approximately 1,500 of these virtual visits daily across the state of Florida, connecting with patients who either cannot or prefer not to come into the office. Use the MPG Connect Telehealth Service when appropriate to virtually meet with the Millennium healthcare provider who knows you best, whether you’re sick or well! Ask about this service when you are requesting or scheduling your appointment.
Wait in Your Car for Your Appointment:
If you prefer to limit your time in our office, you can wait in your car and receive texts when your healthcare provider is ready to see you. Ask the office staff at the front-desk when you arrive for your appointment.
Electronic Check In:
Millennium offers pre-registration and online check-in methods to minimize your wait in the office and reduce the number of surfaces you need to touch. Try it! Look for text and email messages before your scheduled appointment and follow the prompts on either your cell phone, tablet or computer.
