Our Family Practice will remain open during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Office hours will not change, and all providers will be available. Persons entering the office are required to wear a mask (they are available at our front desk free-of-charge). Patients coming for blood tests are asked to call the front desk for instructions before entering the office. We offer telehealth appointments (computer or smartphone video appointments) for patients wishing to avoid an in-office visit.
There is currently no FDA approved medication to treat non-hospitalized patients with COVID-19, however most people who get COVID-19 will recover fully within 2 to 3 weeks. Current measures in place to keep the virus from spreading (working at home, avoiding public gatherings, avoiding travel) are designed to protect the most vulnerable among us - the sick and elderly. Vaccines for COVID-19 are now being tested and will hopefully be available within the next 12 to 18 months. For more information on COVID-19 see the CDC website.
