As we are continuing our efforts to help minimize the transmission of COVID-19 in our community, we are also trying to adopt new and appropriate methods to provide for the needs of our patients and their families. Given the current restrictions and safeguards issued to deal with COVID-19, we are making every effort to help people remain in their homes and reduce their risk of exposure to infectious particles.
Along these lines, we are now adopting Virtual Medicine Visits (VMV)
to enable our doctors to better care for our patients. By this, we mean using video-conferencing to directly communicate with patients and parents in the form of “virtual visits”. Using a HIPPA compliant service called Doxy.me
, we will be allowing select patients to schedule a Virtual Medicine Visit with one of our doctors. This will allow us to use secure video-conferencing to see you and your child in your home, obtain an appropriate history, evaluate specific physical exam findings, and perform a limited evaluation to better determine appropriate medical advice and the need for additional interventions.
While Virtual Visits do not allow us to perform a complete and thorough physical examination, under the current conditions, these encounters will provide an opportunity to manage the medical needs of our patients without putting them at greater risk of germ exposure. We will use the visits to help assess patients who have fever and/or respiratory symptoms along with visits for medication follow ups, rash assessment, pink eye, and specific consultations. These visits are not meant to address issues that require testing, like strep throat and urinary tract infections.
Please contact the office for medical advice as you typically have done. If our staff determines your needs would be best met using a Virtual Medicine Visit, then you will be scheduled with one of our available doctors. When it is time for your visit, you can access the specific doctor’s “virtual exam room” via links below. Once you are in the room, the physician is automatically notified you are there and waiting.
As with real visits, we always try our best to be on time; however, specific patient needs may result in a delay in starting your visit. Please stay connected on your browser and our physician will begin your visit as soon as possible.
Virtual Medicine Visits will only occur during our regular office hours and are not intended for visits with our doctors when the office is closed.
