Important Note

During this COVID-19 pandemic public health emergency, we are doing everything we can to manage our patients' health while respecting social distancing recommendations. As a result, we will be using phone and/or video calls to manage our patients in lieu of a traditional office visit when it is medically appropriate. If we feel a patient requires a face to face visit we can arrange such and will be weighing the risks and benefits of our patients' health and necessary care at this time. Insurances are allowing providers to bill for telephone/video visits during this pandemic.
