ALL PATIENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS UPON ENTERING THE OFFICES.
As a response to the current status of Coronavirus Outbreak, our team has decided to limit the number of patients that will be seen in-person in our office. In this time of crisis, we want to mitigate the risk that may come with an in-person visit, all patients will be seen via TeleVisits or phone consultations unless otherwise clinically indicated. Our staff remains available 24/7 over the phone for all your endocrine needs.
We know you might have been waiting a long time for this appointment and you need assistance from one of our specialists; for that reason, we are making TELEVISITS available to all our patients. Most insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid are now covering this service through the “Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020”.
