As we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID 19, it is clear that we are all in this together. Your partnership in trusting us with your healthcare needs is of utmost importance and we are committed to providing you safe, convenient, and effective care.
We know that some of you have had to postpone treatment due to restrictions or are putting off care for chronic conditions – like diabetes and high blood pressure – because you are concerned about your safety in seeking care.
If you have a chronic health condition, we urge you to schedule a regular appointment with your doctor. This is vitally important to your health. We offer video visits (telemedicine) from the safety of your home, and our clinics are open to see patients who are better suited for an in-person visit. Putting off care can lead to worsening your condition and potentially lead to hospitalization. There is no need to let things get to that point. Many of these chronic-care appointments can easily be managed with video visits (telemedicine).
When you need to be seen in person in one of our clinics, rest assured we are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, including:
- Everyone – including team members, providers, and patients – will be required to wear a mask when entering a clinic. Please bring yours with you when you come.
- We’re regularly disinfecting our clinics throughout the entire day. A complete crew does deep cleaning each night.
- To support social distancing, we are limiting the number of people in the reception area at one time. Schedulers are helping us space appointments and we will ask that you either come to appointments alone or with only one caregiver if you need assistance.
Our Emergency Room, along with our clinics, are open to provide any healthcare needs you may have. We are doing a medical screening and providing a sanitized environment for patients and employees to ensure the safest encounter possible.
Please do not hesitate to make a clinic appointment or use the Emergency Room when necessary for any of your medical needs.
