At Digestive Healthcare Center, your health is our top priority. We are all watching, with care and concern, the spread of the Coronavirus. We want to use this opportunity to inform our patients of the precautions we are taking, as well as the alternative options we have available during this time.
-If you have any concerns about public spaces, we are offering patients our telemedicine option, eVisit, which allows our patients to have an “office visit” from any location via a secure telemedicine platform with good Wi-Fi reception using your smartphone, laptop or iPad. Most insurance companies will pay for the eVisit. Please call the office for more information: (862) 324-7069.
-As of March 19th, we are seeing only emergent cases in the Hillsborough office and Surgical Center from 8a-12p and will continue seeing patients by telemedicine. Our Somerville and Warren offices are closed until further notice. We encourage all our patients to register for our portal. This will be our main source of communication. Our phone lines are still available.
-We are asking patients if you have a significant cough, cold and particularly a fever and/or have recently traveled internationally or have been exposed to someone potentially infected with the Coronavirus, please contact your primary care physician via phone or contact your local emergency room (if you do not have a primary care physician) for evaluation instead of scheduling an appointment at our office.
-As always we are taking great care in cleaning all of our facilities, with particular attention to patient check in-and-out countertops, exam tables, bathroom facilities, door handles, seat arms and all points of common contact.
-We are asking our staff to please stay home if they have a cough, cold or fever of any kind, or if they think that they may have been exposed to the virus.
