Patients with COVID-19 Symptoms
PLEASE NOTE: Out of an abundance of caution, patients who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms will not be seen in the office. Sick patients will be screened via phone call. Patients with fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea and/or recent loss of taste and smell will only be seen via TeleHealth appointments. And, if determined to be a candidate for testing, will receive a prescription for testing at one of the local testing facilities.
Any questions about protocol during this time should be made directly to your medical practice office which can be found in the provider search below. They are best equipped to handle specific inquiries about care and safety.
TeleHealth Appointments Available
To better serve our new and existing patients, we are now offering TeleHealth appointments in addition to in-office visits. Same-day appointments are available, healthcare providers schedules permitting. This serves as an alternative to an in-person office visit, which is still available. When you call your physician’s office to make an appointment, you will be screened to determine the appropriateness of a virtual, TeleHealth appointment. If it is deemed appropriate, a TeleHealth appointment will be scheduled. These appointments are conducted in the comfort and safety of your own home using your personal device’s camera/video function, if available. For patients who do not have this access, an appointment can be conducted via phone call.
The online platform called Doxy.me is easy-to-use, secure and HIPAA compliant. In addition, most prescriptions can be electronically sent directly to your pharmacy after your appointment.
TeleHealth is a suitable option for many primary care and specialty appointment concerns, including, but not limited to:
- Wellness visit and check-ups
- Sick visits
- Prescription renewals
This is not a comprehensive list. For a specific question regarding TeleHealth appointment availability, please call your medical practice directly. This information is listed below.
TeleHealth Technology Requirements
Patients will need internet access or a smartphone to make an appointment. Please be sure it is sufficiently charged and has a camera and microphone. Prior to the appointment, you will receive a link to your appointment with detailed instructions.Is a TeleHealth appointment right for you?
