We are still offerring Telehealth visits and routine in office care. 

To lessen exposure risks to our well patients and staff, we will be separating respiratory illness visits from all other patient times. 

We will see non-respiratory illnesses and respiratory illness in separate blocks of time from other in-office care.

If you have an appointment for a routine visit but answer "yes" to the screening questions above,

call the office before your appointment to let us know so we can make appropriate adjustments. 

We are also offering telemedicine visits that include audio and video.  These visit can be billed to insurance. 

If you have not completed this year's demographic form please complete this form allowing us to treat you.  

When you schedule a telemedicine visit, you are giving consent for telemedicine services. 

If you do not have video capability (A smart phone) we are now offering private pay telephone consultations

when appropriate,for $40 because these can not be billed to insurance. See the consent under patient forms and here. 

What you can do.

Wear a face mask.  Everyone will be required to wear their own into the office . 

The parking lot is the new waiting room.  Please call when you arrive for instruction and coordination of entry.

Only the patient is allowed into the office.  If the patient is a minor child or needs assistance, then one family member may assist.  

Wash your hands and don't touch your face. Stay home when you are sick and until all symptoms resolve.

Cover your cough and sneeze.
