Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, you may be wondering if it is OK to visit your doctor. The answer is yes! Our doctors are committed to keeping you safe and are offering many options for you to get care, such as: ● Limited seating in the waiting area to allow for social distancing ● Special office hours to separate preventive and sick visits ● Telehealth visits, which include phone and videoconference appointments It is very important to continue with your well-care visits and get the care you need to stay healthy. Do not put off seeing your doctor, especially if you have a chronic condition, have ongoing treatments or if you are pregnant. Putting off care can be dangerous and may cause unwanted health outcomes. It is also important that children stay on track with their well-child visits and immunizations. Keeping children up-to-date with their immunizations is an important step in their current and future health. We encourage you to call your doctor to discuss your choices for being seen and getting the care that you and your family deserve. Be sure to get your flu shot when you see your doctor or pharmacist!
