COVID-19 Notice

To our patients:

During this national COVID-19 pandemic, patients will notice some temporary changes within our practice. As we approach the reopening of NH businesses, Spindel Eye Associates would like to announce we are open for medical appointments as well as routine vision exams starting on May 18th.

We will open to all patients; however, we are still following CDC, State of New Hampshire and the American Academy of Ophthalmology guidelines regarding safe practices.

In addition to lowering the number of patients we see, we’re placing waiting room seats at least six feet apart and disinfecting between patients. All staff and patients are required to wear face masks at all times while in the office and patient temperatures may be taken sporadically. Please do not come to the office if you are sick, coughing, or have a fever.

The safety of our staff and patients is very important to us. Guidelines surrounding the Corona virus seem to be changing daily, and we’ve been constantly evaluating how to best offer services to so many patients who are waiting for appointments. We apologize if your appointment has been rescheduled multiple times. Our offices have been closed since March 27th, and we reopened on May 4th with very limited staff. Most of the appointments made for May and June will be rescheduled and patients will receive calls.

Please note, that at this time, we are only seeing patients in our Derry office. We plan to open our Londonderry and Windham locations again on June 8th. Our doctors are not currently offering evening appointments, but we do have limited hours on Saturdays. After you check in for your appointment, you have the option of waiting in your car, or in our waiting room.

Please bear with us as we have more than 3,000 appointments to reschedule following the temporary closing of our offices. Many patients are waiting for appointments; we ask that you keep up with your scheduled visit, as there will be no reminder texts, emails, or phone messages for appointments at this time. Note that we will be enforcing our “No Show” charge policy for any missed appointments. If you have any concerns or questions, please call the office. We would like to thank all of our loyal and dedicated patients for your thoughtfulness and patience. We truly appreciate your business and never take this relationship for granted.

As always, we will have on-call doctors available for emergency and urgent visits in our Derry office. If you have an urgent issue and need to reach our on-call provider, please call 603-434-4193 and choose option 1.

Spindel Eye Associates says thank you to all health care workers for selflessly standing on the front line, to first responders for their continued vigilance, and we say thank you to everyone providing essential services to the community and to our incredible team members! We will get through this together!

Thank you,

Spindel Eye Associates
