We are extremely grateful for our patients who have worked with us throughout this pandemic. Many of you took advantage of our Telemedicine visits which were an excellent way for us to evaluate your overall health, adjust medications, answer your questions, and determine if you needed to be seen. While we did continue to see urgent issues in the offices, the majority of our visits were done by Telemedicine or rescheduled.
As of June 1st, we believe it is now safe for our patients to resume office visits. Over the last several weeks, many patients put their heart issues on hold, which was understandable during a time of crisis. However, stalling your cardiac care can have serious repercussions and it is important to resume standard care.
Now is the time to be seen to:
We are committed to doing everything possible to make this a COVID-safe environment. This includes:
For those patients who are high-risk or unwilling to come into the office just yet, we continue to offer Telemedicine visits. While these visits do not replace the value of a face to face encounter, patients have found these visits to be very beneficial. Talk to our staff who can assist you in setting this up.
We continue to reinforce that if you are experiencing cardiac issues, it is essential that you be seen. Research has shown that throughout the world, there has been a decline in people seeking treatment for acute cardiovascular emergencies. Researchers believe this may be due to peoples’ fear of the hospital, not wanting to overburden the healthcare system, financial concerns, or underestimating the severity of symptoms.
We are available 24/7 to guide you. Contact our offices if you experience heart attack symptoms and we can advise you on next steps.
Our team is here to help you with scheduling your next visit.
