To our Valued Patients,
As COVID-19 impacts all of us, please know that our office staff and providers take extra steps to help deter any spread of the coronavirus and are closely following CDC guidelines and recommendations. We have added important measures to our routine protocols to help avoid exposure.
Per the CDC recommendations if you think you have been infected with this virus and are short of breath, have a fever, or cough you should stay home and self-isolate. We recommend that if your symptoms are mild you stay home, rest, hydrate, and use decongestants and fever reducers. If symptoms worsen, and/or you have other medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension, or lung disease, we recommend that you are evaluated at your local emergency room.
Many medical questions can be answered by having a telemedicine appointment also known as a virtual appointment. You can use either your smartphone or a laptop or tablet as long as it has a camera, microphone, and internet connection. Please note that this is a billable service and some insurance companies may not cover it. Call our office today if you’re needing to schedule a telemedicine appointment.
