As people practice social distancing and businesses that do not provide emergency services begin to close in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we want you to know that your health is still a priority for us. While we are limiting our office visits to urgent visits only, we are implementing a telehealth program so that we may continue to serve our patients during this difficult time.
If you have a non-critical currently scheduled appointment, you will be receiving a call from our staff to either postpone your appointment until it is safe to come to the office or to change your visit to a telehealth visit. Many of the services that we provide can be performed through live audio-visual communication, such as FaceTime, Skype or Facebook messenger chat. Some visits can even be performed by telephone.
If you have healthcare needs in the coming weeks, including routine follow-up appointments, please reach out to our office to schedule an appointment. We will first screen to see if the visit can be completed remotely. If possible, we will set up an appointment for you to video chat with one of us. For visits that cannot be completed remotely we will still see patients in the office. We are working to implement measures to maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe during this time.
In addition to video visits, we have remote check-in appointments available. If you have an issue for which you are unsure if a visit is needed, you may initiate communication with us electronically through a telephone call, email or our website https://mccancemd.com . We will determine if a video or in-person visit must be scheduled.
