COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic , virtual and phone appointments are being offered in addition to in-office appointments. Several safety guidelines have been implemented for in-office appointments which the provider as well as all patients must comply with.

In-Office Appointments

 

The office is requiring everyone to wear a mask in the office at all times. It must cover both your mouth and nose.

Several changes to the office have been made to limit the risk of virus transmission. The office furniture has been rearranged so the provider is 6 feet away from patients and changes to cleaning and disinfecting procedures have been made.

There will be no charge for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment, but contact the office as soon as possible as a courtesy.

Patients are allowed to bring a support person to appointments but this individual will be required to follow the same rules as the patient.

 

Virtual Appointments

Telehealth appointments continue to be an option. This is a video appointment which can be done in the comfort of your own home using a secure, HIPAA compliant platform. Most health insurance plans are covering this option at this time.

Phone Appointments

 

Phone appointments are not ideal for nutrition counseling as they do not offer the ability to share information such as educational handouts. However, this can be an option if desired. Some insurance plans are covering phone appointments while others are not.
