Dear Valued Patients,
Internal Medicine Consultants (IMC) takes the health of our patients and employees very seriously.
Effective immediately, all of our providers have the ability to do virtual visit through our telemedicine platform. These virtual visits are covered by Medicare and by most commercial insurance companies.
It has become clear that the best and most effective strategy to manage the Covid 19 pandemic is to keep sick people home unless they are sick enough to be hospitalized. Virtual visits will allow us to assess people who are ill and to manage them through their illness. Many people will be infected with COVID-19 and the majority can be safely managed at home.
For all patients, if you are experiencing fever/chills, body aches or a cough, we want you to contact our office before coming in. We can arrange a virtual visit, at which time we can evaluate you. If you are unable to do a virtual visit due to technological issues, please call our office and we will decide how to proceed.
Virtual visits are also useful for follow-up appointments for ongoing management of chronic conditions (we can fill medications, order/follow-up labs, etc).
Our phone lines will be open during regular business hours, our Providers and staff will be standing by to serve your healthcare needs.
Wishing you and your families the best during these tough times.
