Telehealth Appointment

Sé inteligente.
Mantente saludable

Tal vez te sientas preocupado por el brote de COVID-19 (coronavirus). Como proveedores de salud, priorizamos tu salud y seguridad. Sin importar lo que pase.

Consejos para pacientes

Para proteger la salud y seguridad de nuestro personal, de nuestros pacientes y comunidades durante la pandemia del COVID-19, estamos tomando medidas de precaución en nuestros centros de salud.  

Pedimos a los pacientes que usen mascarillas en nuestros centros de salud.

Los pacientes deben usar mascarilla al ingresar a nuestros centros de salud, a menos que no puedan hacerlo por circunstancias médicas que les impidan respirar mientras la usan. Estas son las instrucciones para fabricar tu propia mascarilla en casa. Si no tienes una mascarilla, se te proporcionará una mientras estén disponibles. 

Solicitamos a los pacientes que vengan solos a sus citas.

Sabemos que nos siempre es posible y que para algunas citas se necesita un(x) conductxr. Cuando sea seguro hacerlo, le pediremos al conductxr que espere en el auto y no en la sala de espera. Comunícate con nuestros centros de salud si tienes preguntas o inquietudes sobre llevar personas a tus consultas con nosotros.

Gracias por tu paciencia y comprensión.
