Important Message to Our Patients About COVID-19 and Telemedicine
The novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has dramatically impacted our community. The overwhelming science and current strategies on how to contain the ever-growing spread of COVID-19 mean everyone has to do its part to stop it, including our office.
We are currently open with limited face-to-face clinic hours for everyday care for healthcare problems other than coughs and cold. If you are suffering from cough and fever, we ask you to stay home or go to the emergency and follow CDC guidelines to protect yourself from the virus and what to do if you think you are sick from the Coronavirus . We need to keep everyone safe: patients, staff, and medical providers included.
If you are suffering from problems other than coughs and cold (like cancer, masses, severed pain and breathing issues other than cough), we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a telehealth visit.
We have multiple ways to arrange a virtual appointment with the added benefit of social distancing to help minimize the risk of propagation of the virus to our patients, staff, and medical providers. Most appointments can be seen using this service, excluding new visits, and will be billed through insurance or paid out-of-pocket the usual and customary way. Please consider this insurance-reimbursed telemedicine service as a great way to continue your care – and without putting anyone at risk.
The outpouring of support from our patients has been tremendous. Your kindness to us and encouragement through these uncharted waters are the reason why we love this community so much! Thank you for all you do, and we appreciate you all dearly!
Your Tower ENT Team.
