Coronavirus (COVID-19) Procedures and Protocols

Update April 9th, 2021: Although the statewide mask mandate expired April 9th, Birmingham city leaders have extended the citywide mask mandate through May 24th. Advanced Surgeons, PC resides in the city limits of Birmingham and will continue to require face masks for its patrons until further notice.

As we all continue to deal with the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) we are going to continue to serve our patients. We are following all guidelines provided by the state. We are open for regular office hours: Monday-Thursday from 8:15-4:30 and Friday 8:30-3:00.

We are asking that patients come in alone or come with just 1 caregiver. We ask that patients wear their own mask upon entering our lobby & be prepared to have your temperatures taken. We do have facemasks available should you need one. We offer seating in our back hallways should you request or you may wait in your car once you have registered for your appointment until it’s time for you to see your physician and we will call you to come back to our office.
