Response to COVID-19
As you are aware we are in a pandemic of a new virus which has been devastating to many populations across the globe. Our goal is your safety and health as we try to balance healthcare needs with the need for social distancing. For the next few weeks we will be starting to reduce clinic visits until such time as the pandemic winds down enough to resume a normal schedule.
If you are ill, call first. Patients with fever of 99 or higher should NOT come to the office.
We will review potential follow up visits and new patients to see what the best method is to attend to your pulmonary needs. Some routine follow ups we may ask to reschedule. Some other visits may be asked to participate in Telemedicine conference with your physician or other provider. Some new patient visits may also be rescheduled. Most decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis. We will try to see urgent new patients in as safe a manner as possible. Hopefully we can overcome the crisis with minimal disruption.
You can call if you have questions but our office staff will be reaching out to you soon as your appointment comes up.
We will check your temperature when you come to the office but if you do have a fever DO NOT come to the office. We will also ask you to bring only 1 person with you if you need assistance.
The local health departments and the CDC have frequent bulletins on their websites for any other COVID-19 questions.
While you're staying safe at home, communicate with our office via our patient portal. If you need an invitation to the portal, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the patient's name and date of birth.
