COVID-19 Information: In-Office Procedures and Testing
Due to the current public health emergency surrounding COVID-19, our first priority is the health and well-being of all of our patients, employees, and the community. If you experience COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, body aches, or shortness of breath), contact us by phone so we can discuss the best course of action with you.
Our In-Office Procedures
We want to keep you updated on our CDC-recommended procedures for patient visits to our offices. We may adjust our in-office visit policies as needed as we monitor the pandemic’s effects in the local areas of our United Physician Group locations.
Face Masks or Coverings
Any person entering our office is required to wear a mask or face-covering and keep it on for the duration of your appointment. Learn more about the CDC’s recommendations for cloth face covers. If you have a disability that prevents wearing a face mask or covering, please be prepared to present proof from your physician.
Screening at Entry Ways
We are taking the temperature of everyone before entry while asking a few precautionary questions. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms can take a diagnostic test to see if you have an active coronavirus infection and should take steps to quarantine or isolate yourself from others.
We are limiting the number of people in our waiting rooms by reducing the number of seats with distance between available seats. We are requesting patients to come to their appointments alone. Exceptions will be made if assistance or a caregiver is needed.
We have taken specific precautions to ensure that our offices are clean and safe for in-office appointments, but our practice does offer telemedicine appointments with our TeleVisit Health & Online Wellness (healow™) mobile app per your physician’s discretion.
COVID-19 Testing at Our Locations
United Physicians Group offers COVID-19 testing at all of its locations. You can give us a call to make an appointment. The testing is done while the patients are in their cars. At your appointment, the laboratory technician will come out to you to administer the test.
