Dr. Couchman's Exposure
Many of you have heard that Dr. Couchman was exposed to the coronavirus and was away from the office. We will start by saying that he has been tested and that test came back negative - he does NOT have coronavirus. It is true that Dr. Couchman was exposed to someone who tested positive for the virus. He was extremely careful in the encounter and it DID NOT occur inside Mesquite Pediatrics. The person with the virus never entered the building or even touched the doorknob. When the results came back positive, out of an abundance of caution, Dr. Couchman put himself on quarantine. In order to confirm that it is safe for him to see patients, he was tested and as mentioned above that test came back confirming that he does NOT have coronavirus. Dr. Couchman has returned to his regular duties at our office. Please do not call our office for more details as there is no further information that our staff can give.
