Our Priority is You: We Offer Telehealth

Rest assured, we are taking necessary precautions to protect our patients’ and staff members’ safety in light of COVID-19. To help you practice social distancing, we are now offering virtual visits for applicable services, 7 days a week.

Telehealth Appointment

Be Smart.
Stay Healthy.

You may be feeling concerned because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As a healthcare provider, we prioritize your health and safety. No matter what. 

Patient Advisory

To protect the health and safety of our staff, patients, and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking precautionary measures at our health centers.  

We request that patients wear masks in our health center(s).
Patients must wear a mask upon entering our health center(s) unless they have medical circumstances that would impede their breathing while wearing one. Here are instruction for making your own mask at home. If you do not come with a mask, one will be provided for you while supplies last.  

We request that patients do not bring children to their appointments. 

We know that it can be difficult to find childcare. If you aren't able to find childcare or someone to watch your children in the waiting room during your appointment, you can consider telehealth as a more convenient option. 

Please call our Health Centers if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have an appointment scheduled or are looking to schedule a new appointment and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please call first.

Ask to speak to a staff member before your appointment or before coming into a health center. Please note that we are transitioning some appointments telehealth. To see if your appointment qualifies for a virtual visit, please make an appointment online or by calling.
