In light of current events and the Coronavirus outbreak we ask that if you have traveled in the past 2 weeks, are experiencing shortness of breath, fever or other respiratory symptoms that you postpone your visit with us until your symptoms are addressed.
In addition we are adjusting our office, procedure scheduling and policies as follows:
We will be seeing patients in the office however we have also implemented telemedicine which can easily be used to speak face to face with your doctor. Any brand of cell phone, IPAD or computer with a video camera can be used. However this is best done on your cell phone it usually does not require any downloads. Please call the office to make a telemedicine appointment, these appointments will be scheduled and run on time like a regular office appointment.
If you have a routine or yearly follow up office appointment we ask that you use our telemedicine function or postpone your visit for the next 8 weeks.
If you have a routine colonoscopy due without any new symptoms, routine screening for Barrett’s without any new symptoms we ask that you postpone your visit or procedure for the next 8 weeks.
Our office is open for evaluating patients. We ask that you come on time to appointments if you are early please wait in your car until a few minutes before the appointment time. We also ask that patients do not bring any additional family members with them unless necessary.
We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and the safety of our patients is our first priority. Additional adjustments may need to be made with regard to office visits or procedures.
We are still available at the office daily as well as through telemedicine conferencing and continue to provide quality care to our patients.
