As Arizona re-opens for business, the staff and physicians at Tozer Eye Center are excited to return to regular patient care. In addition to resuming elective surgeries as of May 4th, we are also now seeing all routine patients and new consults. In order to maintain proper social distancing and ensure a safe environment for patients and staff, several changes have been made to our office policies.
While we understand these measures may be cumbersome for some, please know that we are doing this in order to make Tozer Eye Center a safe place for you to obtain eyecare. As the situation in Arizona changes there may be changes to these measures in the future. Thank you and we look forward to helping you with all your eyecare needs.
