As we all do our best to help slow down the rate of spread of the coronavirus our visits are still mostly by tele-health. This is an effort to support the recommendations that citizens work from home when they can and maintain social distance. We are all still “safer at home” and your health and safety and that of our staff is our priority at this time. This strategy of limiting face to face care will also help to conserve use of much needed medical supplies that are in still in shortage.
We are seeing well child checks and yearly physical exams in person and giving vaccines in person. There are new processes before in person visits and the staff will walk you through these.
We have invested in new software to help gather information at your visit so as you receive your email or text appointment reminders please click through the questions presented to you. These reminders also give you information on how to move through the office. For example we ask that you call us from the parking lot when you arrive. We are limiting and spacing in person visits and utilizing your car as your personal waiting room. As you come for your flu vaccine appointment you will receive a questionnaire on which you will let us know if you would like your flu shot brought out to you.
All other visits will occur on video chat over your phone or computer. This allows you to stay in the comfort of your home. The nurse will call you at your appointment time and walk you through the process and get you connected.
Please practice social distancing – maintain 6-9 feet if you must go out. Wear your masks and do your part to slow the spread of Covid-19. Restrict your own movement and Please avoid any gatherings or crowds or the gyms.
At this time if you do have to go to the office for work please stay home if you feel unwell. Call us if you are unwell and we can help coordinate care and Covid-19 testing.
Thank you for your patience as we work through this pandemic.
