What’s our practice doing during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The well being of our patients and staff is our top priority. We will continue to care for the needs of our patients just as before while continuing all efforts in preventing the spread in COVID-19. Our office will remain open and patient care will continue, we have enabled the option for Tele-Health for our patients with non-life-threatening emergencies. Please contact our office for more information on our practice to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
I have an appointment scheduled to come into the office. Do I still attend this appointment?
If you’ve had an appointment scheduled to come into our office, we have done our best to reach out and re-schedule all necessary appointments for a tele-health consultation. If you have any questions or are unsure about your upcoming appointment, please contact our office prior to your scheduled appointment for more information. Our office is available via phone 24/7. Please utilize the “Contact” tab on our website for our office contact information.
What is Tele-Health? How does it work? Will I still gain the same quality of treatment with a virtual consultation?
A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment. You will sit in front of a camera where you will be able to see yourself and your health care provider on the screen once your session begins. These appointments are also called virtual visits.
Upon scheduling your virtual consultation, a member of our team will contact you directly with instructions on how to complete your virtual consultation. We utilize a software that is compatible with most computers or mobile devices with video recording features enabled. For more information on scheduling your virtual consultation, please contact our office.
The quality of care and safety for our patients and their families will always remain our top priority no matter the environment of care. We understand these circumstances are new for most of our patients. Tele-medicine has been discovered across the nation through explicit research to be the safest and most effective form of patient care during this time for patients who do not require emergent care. We will use our best judgment while enforcing the safety policies set forth for determining the patients that require emergent care in our office. If you have any questions, our office is available by phone 24/7.
