Your Health and Safety Is Our Highest Priority 

ALA is welcoming and treating all patients in office with precautions in place. If you are interested in bariatric surgery or have another issue that may require general surgery and you previously delayed making an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Providing telemedicine appointments as an alternative communication method for those who prefer or require this service.
  • Requiring all staff and patients to wear a mask or cloth face covering while in any of our offices
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting our offices
  • Requiring staff and patients who are experiencing a fever or any viral symptoms to stay home and consult with a primary care physician

Important information about your appointment:

  • Please have patient forms filled out prior to your arrival
