If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call us immediately.

New Appointment Policies

As the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is impacting the United States, our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the virus. At the Burick Center, we are responding to this rapidly-evolving situation proactively.  We feel it is important to share with you the steps we are taking to help keep you and our staff members safe and healthy. 

We are conducting a phone pre-screening of every patient with an upcoming appointment. Please anticipate a phone call from one of our nurses the day prior to any scheduled appointment – including physician visits and all ancillary treatments. If you are cleared in the pre-screening process, you may keep your onsite appointment. 

If it is not safe for you to come in to the office and you have an urgent need, we will communicate via the phone or video to make sure your needs are met. If you do not have an urgent need, we will reschedule your appointment. 


We ask that everyone use the sanitation station located at our entrance before entering the practice. 

Continued Monitoring

As part of our commitment to your health and well-being, we are carefully monitoring the situation with regular updates and guidance from the  Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as additional government agencies and health care providers.
