At WholeHealth we are closely monitoring the new Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our highest priority is to continue to provide quality care in a safe environment for you and our staff. Here are our current recommendations:
- If you are experiencing a fever (temperature >100.4), cough, or shortness of breath, please call our office so that we may discuss the next best steps, including testing for COVID-19 if you qualify. Please DO NOT go to the Emergency Room simply for a test, they will not test you unless you are ill enough to be admitted to the hospital. Please use the ER only for true emergencies.
- If you are experiencing mild cold or flu-like symptoms such as runny nose, sinus congestion, a productive cough, vomiting, or diarrhea, and would like to be seen for an appointment, please call our office to set up a virtual visit. During this visit, the provider will then determine if it is necessary for you to come to the office for an exam.
- At this time we are encouraging that ALL patients consider taking advantage of our virtual visit capabilities for ALL visits including sick visits, wellness visits and medication checks. If bloodwork or vaccines are needed, then we can schedule appropriately to try to reduce your risk of exposure to ill patients.
We encourage you to continue practicing social distancing or self-quarantining, good hand washing, and staying home if you feel sick. When in doubt, please call our office to discuss your concerns. Evenings or weekends you can access either our nurse help line or our on-call provider if you have questions or need assistance.
Best of health,
