To all RGW patients,

The Retina Group of Washington (RGW) hopes that you and your families continue to stay well and safe.

Because we place a priority on your health, as well as the health of our staff, physicians, and other patients, RGW would like to remind all patients to remain home if you are experiencing any of the following COVID 19-related symptoms. RGW will either reschedule your in-person appointment or convert it to a tele-health appointment by phone, mobile device or computer:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

To ensure that your visit to our offices is safe, RGW continues to take the following precautions:

  • Regular monitoring and screening of staff for symptoms of COVID-19, including daily, onsite temperature measurement of both staff and patients. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 will not be permitted to enter our offices. 
  • Distancing of 6 feet or more between individuals, except when close contact with providers is required to prepare a patient for a procedure or conduct a physical exam. RGW clinics and office spaces have been redesigned to accommodate social distancing. If our patient-designated office areas become too crowded, visitors will be advised to wait in their cars until their appointment time.
  • All RGW employees, patients and visitors must wear a protective face mask at all times and adhere to proper hand hygiene. Only patients needing help with mobility should bring a companion to their visit. Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is worn by all RGW staff during procedures.

Thank you for your continued support.

Giving back to the community is one of RGW's founding principles. Our practice is the leading provider of indigent retinal and macular care in the entire Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. This philanthropic approach, combined with our physicians' support of resident and fellowship education, reflects RGW's commitment to help those less fortunate—and to advance the retinal/macular field by offering training and learning opportunities for qualified physicians.
