The initial visit is a comprehensive history and physical exam that can take up to 2 hours. It is important that I learn about your medical history and listen to all of your current medical needs and concerns. It is also important that I learn about your support system and meet other household members who help with your care. Remember, I do not have a waiting room full of patients - you will not be rushed through a visit!
I received the COVID vaccine but still wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) when seeing patients, including an N95 mask and face shield. My medical equipment is always disinfected in between patients. I ask that anyone in the home/residence wear a face mask for the duration of my visit. I protect you; you protect me!
If you have COVID symptoms or have COVID, I will ask that we do a telemedicine visit instead of a face-to-face visit.
