Until the danger to our community passes, we are shifting to web based TeleHealth for all of our patient visits except for patients who are due for injections that can’t be postponed or who need emergency endocrine care. We are doing this to protect our patients, our staff and to do our part as members of the larger community. You will be able to see us and speak with us during these virtual visits that will take place using your smart phone or computer. One of our staff members will be calling you to verify your appointment time for a web based visit. We have already started doing these visits and our patients have told us that it is remarkably easy to do. If you need, our staff will help you with the steps you need to take to connect with us.
If you have an appointment scheduled with our office in the next few weeks, we will be calling you to offer you a telehealth visit for the same day as your original scheduled appointment.
Please note that we will not be doing blood draws in our office, however, both Lab Corp and Quest Laboratories are open for blood and urine collections if you need urgent labs. All other labs should wait until the danger to the community passes.
Our staff will continue working during this difficult period to answer phones, help you get started with telehealth, fill prescription and take care of your concerns. Our doctors will be seeing patients virtually every day. Athena will work Monday through Thursdays as usual.
Our office phone lines will be open from 9:00am to 12:30pm and 1:30pm-5:00pm Monday thru Thursday. On Fridays our phone lines will stay open until 4:00pm. We will be closed for lunch from 12:30-1:30pm Monday-Friday.
We look forward to returning to in person visits and full operation as soon as safe for our community.
We wish you all good health and urge you to practice social distancing to protect our entire community. Please check cdc.gov for regular updates on how to practice social distancing.
The doctors and staff of Endocrinology Associates.
