Please Note : In response to the COVID Pandemic, our office remains open to serve all your medical needs.
We are available for inpatient office visits and telehealth medicine. You may also use our Patient Portal for requests including prescription refills, appointments, referrals and general questions to our Doctors and Nurse Practitioners. If you call and no one is available to answer the phone, please leave a message and we will return your call as quickly as possible as our staff is assisting other patients. We are available for your phone calls between 9am and 4pm Monday through Friday and our answering service is available to assist you after hours.

If you would like to request a virtual/teleheatlh visit with one of our
providers please call us and we will help arrange this. These visits are generally covered by insurance and many
insurers are waiving copays. Telehealth visits may be conducted via internet connected smartphone or tablet or via a computer
with webcam. If you are unable to access any of the above we may still be able to conduct a visit or virtual check-in via
telephone. To prepare for your virtual visit if you are able to, please do the following:

1. have a list of all medications you are currently taking (including the list of any you may need refilled)
2. if able, check your current weight
3. if able, check your pulse and blood pressure
4. if able, check your temperature
5. write down any specific questions you might have.

If you can provide and email, we will send you a link to a website that will take you directly into your providers virtual queue
or waiting room. You need only input your name and the provider will be with you as soon as possible.
If you do not have email access but do have internet access we can verbally provide
you with the link to type into a web browser on your device.

Regarding COVID 19 testing. Testing remains very limited. You may check with you County Department of Health…

Finally, our providers will remain on call after hours but they may be busy caring for hospitalized patients. When able, limiting
non-emergency calls for refills, referrals, etc. to regular office hours will help us serve those in the most need quickly and efficiently.
