During COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak

We are still scheduling appointments for new and existing patients; however, we have made several temporary adjustments to how we deliver care to reduce your risk and ensure safety. Adjustments we’ve made include:

  • 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 physician through a video connection. We continue to encourage you to use telehealth visits, which allow us to provide many needed healthcare services while you are in the comfort of your own home.
  • Expanded In-person appointments
    In-person visits, including early morning, evening and Saturday appointments, are available to patients with health concerns that require special accommodations or as preferred. We’ve developed a direct rooming policy to minimize time spent in waiting rooms and ensure all patients and care team members wear masks and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Increased Health Protocols
    Learn some of the necessary steps we’ve taken to help patients and healthcare providers with their health.
