COVID-19 Coronavirus Update for our Valued Patients

The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic has caused our practice to adapt to allow us to still provide the necessary services to help maintain and prevent vision loss while at the same time providing for the safety and health of our patients and staff.

Effective immediately, non-urgent office appointment visits are being rescheduled to dates in April and beyond. Our office will be reaching out to our patients to give new appointment dates. This process will take some time to contact all of our patients with upcoming non-urgent appointments, but please feel free to call our office if you have not heard from us so that an appropriate date and time can be arranged. We will also be offering Telemedicine Services and will bill your medical insurance for that service.

We will continue to be seeing urgent appointments in our Southfield office. If you have had a potential exposure to COVID-19 or have symptoms of possible infection including fever, cough, or headache and have an urgent problem, please do not report to our office but instead call so that we can direct you to an appropriate hospital setting for evaluation.

To keep our office environment safe for patients and staff, all patients who are seen with urgent problems will be screened at our door before entering the office with appropriate health related questions as well as a temperature check. Our office, as always, will be cleaned meticulously so that you can be assured of a safe environment. To minimize potential exposures, we are asking family members who are accompanying patients to wait in their vehicles instead of in our office. We will only allow one family member in the office if the patient is visually impaired or otherwise handicapped and can not navigate without assistance.

During this unprecedented health crisis, we remain available over the telephone for questions that arise regarding your eye care. If you have one of the high-risk conditions that prevent you from being seen in our office, please call us so that we can advise the best course of action.

Through all of our joint efforts, we look forward to surmounting this crisis and working together to maintain your vision and health.

Sincerely,

Glaucoma Center of Michigan

Cataract surgery allows many options to improve the vision for patients both with and without glaucoma. Our surgeons fully utilize the appropriate lens replacement options, ranging from monofocal lenses, toric implants and various multifocal IOLs (Symfony and Restor) all individually tailored to our patient’s needs.

"As I shared with Carey and Nicole, the staff is always professional and friendly.  They move you through the office to each procedure quickly and efficiently.  No waste of time."

"I've been a patient with Dr. Siegel for 11 years now and have seen him at every location.   My story is lengthy, but he is the one to go to if you have high pressure in your eyes.  Don't go to just any eye specialist when it comes to this, because they will want to automatically put you on eye drops.  Dr. Siegel looks at the whole picture because he knows what he is doing."
