During COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak

We are still scheduling appointments for new and existing patients. At this time, patients may bring one person to an office visit, office procedure or ultrasound. A child may also accompany the patient if the patient can supervise the child and/or bring one other person who will be responsible for the child.

We have made several temporary adjustments to how we deliver care to reduce your risk and ensure safety. Adjustments we’ve made include:

  • Increased Health Protocols
    Masks are required of all who enter our office. We do not recommend bringing a child to your visit at this time.
  • Video/Telehealth visits
    These visits allow you to use a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) or desktop computer with a camera to speak with your provider through a video connection.
  • Expanded In-person appointments
    We added early-morning and evening appointments for those with medical conditions that make them more susceptible to illness. Additionally, we created appropriate space between chairs in waiting areas and ensure that all patients and care team members have masks and appropriate protection.

Learn more about initiating a video visit by speaking with your physician’s office or by visiting our telehealth services page.

“The physicians and staff of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Jefferson Health know that a diagnosis of cancer is devastating at any time in a person’s life. Whether you are a young woman just starting your family or a proud grandmother watching your grandchildren grow up, a cancer diagnosis makes time seem to stand still. 

Each patient will require a unique approach to their diagnosis, and our goal at the Division of Gynecologic Oncology is to treat each patient with compassion and state-of-the-art care. Our multidisciplinary team will work with you and your family to make sure that you are provided with a tailored treatment approach to battle your cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and supportive care services.”
