Physicians for Women would like to update you on our current office policies due to COVID-19. 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 wearing a mask. This does not have to be a medical mask. It can be any fitted material to keep droplets from reaching you or someone else. If you do not come to your appointment wearing a mask, you will be asked to reschedule. Due to current healthcare recommendations, we are no longer allowing any mask with a respirator, tied bandanas or neck buffs/gaiters. All patients will be required to check-in at the table in the main lobby for screening questions and a temperature check prior to getting on the elevator.
Every single one of us can do our part to assist in slowing the spread! Thank you.
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 well-being 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 offer Telemedicine appointments.
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.
