Never Delay Your Family’s Care -The First Four Reasons

If your routines have been disrupted over the past few months you’re not alone! Closures, cancellations and safety concerns – we’ve all felt the effects. But one thing’s certain: your health, and your family’s health, is too important to be placed on hold at this time.

Your Health and Well-Being – Our Priority

It’s never been more important than now to protect your health and get back to your personal health care plan and provider-recommended procedures.

Here are four first reasons why you shouldn’t delay necessary care.

Your physical and mental well-being improve with medical care

The fact is that postponing the care that you and your family need can actually lead to more anxiety and worry but, worse than that, delays can allow an illness to quietly progress and advance. If you had a scheduled surgery or procedure cancelled due to the pandemic or you’ve been postponing a treatment or check up then now’s the time to get care. We understand why it’s natural right now to hesitate before you reschedule and that’s why we’re committed to you more than ever. We’ve prepared for you. You’ll receive the excellent care you expect; the safe care you demand for you and your family and the assurance and confidence you deserve.

You’re due for preventive care

Preventive care hasn’t changed. Regardless of what’s going on around us health screenings and check-ups are vital for the early detection of possible issues. Early detection gives you more treatment options and creates more successful outcomes.

The CDC lists several factors to consider when understanding how often you should see your doctor or medical provider – things like your age, your lifestyle choices and your family history. If you already have several health issues or are at risk for future health-related challenges then regular preventive care really isn’t optional, it’s essential.

You feel safe

None of us would go anywhere, or work anywhere, where we don’t feel completely safe especially when it comes to our health. This is why we have non-negotiable additional safety protocols and extra measures, including:

  •  Facemasks required for patients, visitors and staff in all areas.
  •  Temperature monitoring for patients, visitors and team members.
  • Appropriate medical personal protective equipment (PPE) for employees.
  • Rigorous and frequent cleaning and sanitizing of all surfaces and equipment – even pens!
  • Physical distancing, rearranged seating in waiting areas, continual monitoring of potentially congested areas.
  • Restrictions on some non-essential visitors consistent with appropriate directives.
  • Telemedicine (virtual online visits) as an option for some follow up visits.

You have a plan

A visit to any of our clinics will look a little different from what you are used to. We even have some Telemedicine (virtual online visit) options. No matter how you’re connecting with us, it’s important to first have a plan in place. Make your appointment and now here are a few things to consider before you arrive.

Before Your Visit

  • Call us ahead of time. We want you to ask us any of those questions or concerns you may have about safety procedures. For example can I bring somebody in with me? Is a virtual visit an alternative option for me? What if I think I may have been recently exposed to the Coronavirus?
  • Have a cloth face covering or mask with you for your visit. (we can provide one if you forget).
  • We have plenty of hand sanitizer but have your own with you for before and after your visit.
