A COVID-19 Updated Message from the President of Reston Radiology Consultants:
As our community continues to adapt with social distancing and heightened safety precautions, Reston Radiology Consultants remains committed to the health and well-being of our patients. We have implemented new procedures to screen patients before entering the office, options of check-in without physical contact, and remaining in your car until we are ready for your procedure. All patients will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times in our centers. As we have a limited supply of masks, we ask that all of our patients bring their own masks for their appointments. Any patients that screen positively for Coronavirus risk factors or symptoms will not be allowed into our centers.
We remain open with modified business hours providing our full range of imaging services. Following consultation with area physicians (including cancer specialists and breast surgeons) and the guidelines of state and national organizations, we will plan to resume all screening studies, including mammography, DEXA, and CT beginning Monday, May 4th.
As we provide our imaging services in a strictly outpatient setting, we are not using resources in the hospital-based setting which may continue to be required in the weeks and months ahead. Also, by using enhanced cleaning procedures beyond our prior, already vigorous, cleaning procedures, we will provide the safest possible environment with the least possible risk of exposure to COVID-19. If all health needs are routed to in-hospital imaging centers, we will encounter long delays and the potential of putting outpatients at increased risk of exposure. A truly outpatient (not directly in a hospital) imaging center can control exposure risks much more easily by minimizing wait times and utilizing simple solutions, such as remaining in your car except for the actual procedure itself.
Reston Radiology Consultants is dedicated to our staff and referring physicians with our patients always at the forefront. We have four locations in the Northern Virginia area, all of which remain open. Given the fluid nature of the pandemic, please contact us directly for our most up to date hours of operation for each site.
We will keep everyone updated and will get through this together! Stay strong.
David E. Dubois, M.D.
