We are seeing new and established patients via telehealth.
As we all do our best to help slow down the rate of spread of the coronavirus we have some updates for the upcoming weeks.
Our visits in the next few weeks will mostly be “telehealth” visits. In light of the current pandemic Insurance companies have been relaxing face to face requirements for evaluating patients and ordering medications. This is an effort to support the recommendations that citizens work from home and maintain social distance. Even though our small practice has seemingly fewer patients through, your health and safety and that of our staff is our priority at this time.
Your visits will occur on video chat over your phone or computer. This allows you to stay in the comfort of your home. If there are some limited visits to the office when this occurs patients will be spaced out accordingly to maintain distancing.
This strategy of limiting face to face care will also help to conserve use of much needed medical supplies that are in shortage.
Our phone lines are always open as usual. We will continue to schedule appointments as usual and we are always here for any concerns you may have. We are still here for you just in a different capacity. We want to avoid going to the local Emergency Rooms so please call us first with any concerns or questions!
I cannot stress enough that we do not have testing available as we would hope and we know the virus cases are more than we have bene able to capture due to the limited testing.
Please practice social distancing - maintain 6 feet if you must go out. But do your part to flatten the curve and stay home!
Restrict your own movement. Please avoid any gatherings or crowds or the gyms or in the back yard while everyone is home!
At this time if you do have to go to the office for work please stay home if you feel unwell
Please make sure you postpone any elective surgeries. Here is information sent to surgeons regarding these recommendations.
Keep up to date with the latest news on COVID - 19
symptoms of the COVID -19 are fever and dry cough.
