CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) POLICY

Dear Adams Patterson patients and families, 

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing many changes thoughout our community.  Each of us must do our part to decrease the spread of the virus.  Adams Patterson is doing everything we can to protect our comminity and also continue to provide adequate care for our patients.  Please help us by adhering to the temporary changes outlined below.

  1. We ask that patients who have any of the following symptoms call to reschedule their appointment:  Fever of 100.4 F or greater, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or trouble breathing.
  2. If you have traveled internationally in the past 14 days or you have come into close contact with someone under investigation for or diagnosed with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), please call to reschedule your appointment.
  3. Annual Well Women's visits will be rescheduled for a time beyond 4-6 weeks from now.  Medications will be refilled until you can be seen by your provider.
  4. We will continue to see patients for urgent gynecological needs.
  5. We will conitnue to see our pregnant patients as scheduled but we ask that patients who are 13-18 weeks gestation with no issues to reschedule for a later time.
  6. We ask that patients attend visits alone unless you are a minor with a parent/guardian present or require a translator.  Please arrange for family, support persons, and children to stay at home.  However, you may facetime or call out during your visit so they can remain involved. 
  7. Insurance and financial issues will be handled over the phone.
  8. No unnecessary persons will be allowed in the office including sales/detail representatives.
  9. We are actively working on setting up telemedicine visits and will notify you once this becomes available.

We are very fortunate to have such wonderful patients and staff.  Thank you for being patient and respecting these changes.  Please contact us with questions or concerns.
