I have been delighted to see many of you in person this year. It’s been a joy to reconnect and welcome you to the new office. However, with the Omicron variant rising rapidly in Houston and throughout the world, we will need to return to our previous safety protocols until this spike ends. Though with vaccines and boosters our risk of serious infection is reduced, we are still susceptible to infection from delta, and moreso, Omicron.
We will continue to prioritize your health and safety while continuing to provide neurological services. We appreciate your understanding while we return to providing care in the virtual format. If you have not gotten your Pfizer or Moderna booster, I encourage you to do so as this will provide enhanced protection against significant illness, even though not fully against infection.
I’m looking forward to brighter days ahead where we can be together again, in person.
Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays and a healthy, joyous New Year.
