  3. If you have a scheduled appointment with Highland Clinic, please contact our office prior to coming to your visit if you have a fever, new onset cough, or shortness of breath.
  4. Highland Clinic wants to ensure our patients that our policy has always been to clean each exam room after EVERY patient and we continue to follow those guidelines. Please be assured that we are being very diligent and increasing the frequency that we are cleaning our waiting areas throughout the day and following the CDC guidelines.
