Bucks ENT Update

Bucks County is now in the yellow reopening stage. Bucks ENT Associates is open for routine and urgent care. We are also scheduling new surgical procedures and rescheduling those that were postponed.

We take the spread of COVID-19 very seriously. Your safety and health are very important to us. We are closely monitoring the advisories and recommendations from the CDC and both state and local Health and Human Services Departments for guidance related to Coronavirus.

It is a top priority that all precautions are taken to keep a safe environment for patients and staff members. Strict sterilization techniques and social distancing practices have been implemented to reduce the risk of viral transmission.

We are excited to be open and look forward to seeing you soon.

The Physicians and Staff of Bucks ENT Associates
