Physicians for Women would like to update you on our current office policies for this week. We continue to limit patient appointments to only the patient; no visitors and no children may accompany you into our office. We are requiring you to come to your appointment with something covering your nose and mouth. This does not need to be a medical mask but any material to keep droplets from reaching you or someone else. If you do not come to your appointment with some sort of facial barrier, you will be asked to reschedule. All patients will be required to check-in at the table in the main lobby for a temperature check and screening prior to getting on the elevator. Every single one of us can do our part to assist in slowing the spread! Thank you.

First and foremost, we hope you and your families are safe and healthy. The current situation in our community is changing every day and often every hour. At Physicians for Women of Greensboro, we are doing our best to stay up to date and evaluate what is best our patients, employees and providers so we can continue to provide care to our patients that need us.
Effective Monday March 30, 2020, we will reduce our office hours from 8:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Friday. Our switchboard will be open from 8:30am to 1:00pm for incoming calls. We are going to re-evaluate the office hours each week and will send out a correspondence each week. We apologize for the additional communications from our office but we want to make sure all of our patients are informed. If you have an afternoon appointment scheduled next week, you will receive an additional communication to reschedule your appointment. Please call our office at 336-273-3661 option 3 to reschedule your appointment. We will continue to provide all care in the office during this time of reduced office hours.
The office will continue to restrict visitors in our office. This means only the patient can come to an appointment.
To our obstetrical/pregnant patients: At this point, we still feel like your routine pregnancy checks are vital to the health and wellbeing of you and your baby. We will continue to perform all needed services in our office that you are accustom to receiving.
Physicians for Women is also happy to begin offering Telemedicine appointments starting Monday March 30th. For those appointments that do not require a physical exam, you may be able to schedule a telemedicine appointment. If you are eligible, you will schedule an appointment by calling our office and be placed on the provider’s schedule on a specific day and time. You will receive an email with a link that you will click through to be placed in the virtual waiting room of that provider at the appropriate appointment day/time. Your provider will start the call when ready. This is a billable service to your insurance carrier and you will be responsible for copays/coinsurance or deductibles. It is a secure platform for healthcare providers but please be aware there are certain risks and physical limitation to a virtual visit.
We want you to know we are going to continue providing care in our office as long as we possibly can! Thank you for your continued support of Physicians for Women and understanding during these unprecedented times in our community.
