In an abundance of caution we will be closed for non-urgent outpatient visits starting March 20th until further notice. During this time, our phone lines will continue to be open for medication refills, urgent questions and telehealth appointment scheduling during our normal business hours of 8 AM to 4 PM (Monday to Friday). We are still performing critical cardiac testing as deemed necessary by the physicians and we will be screening all patients prior to entry into the medical office building. All office visits will be completed utilizing telemedicine/virtual visits in lieu of face to face visits to help us all maintain the social distancing guidelines as recommended by the CDC.
Talk to your doctor from the comfort of your home.
The Trump Administration announced expanded Medicare telehealth coverage that will enable beneficiaries to receive a wider range of healthcare services from their doctors without having to travel to a healthcare facility. Beginning on March 6, 2020, Medicare—administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)—will temporarily pay clinicians to provide telehealth services for beneficiaries residing across the entire country.
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a one-on-one visit completed through a secure internet connection through the Patient Portal.
This visit takes place over the internet via computer, cell phone, or iPad. You are able to see one of our health care providers in real time to discuss your health concerns.
In most cases the provider will be able to make recommendations, review test results, prescribe medications as deemed necessary, and schedule follow-up care.
