If we determine that we cannot effectively evaluate you by Telehealth, we can have the conversation of what makes the most sense. We can either evaluate you in our parking lot or bring you directly back to an exam room. That way for the safety of you and the other patients, there we can keep the 6 feet recommended between patients.
But I’m not great with technology… Don’t worry, we’ll work with you.
Our preferred platform is Hippo Health for a variety of reasons, but for the short term the government is allowing us to connect with you in any way we can. It’s simpler than you think. (See, “How to Hippo”) Enlist the help of your kids or friends. Or come to the parking lot and one of our staff will help walk you through it.
We can use in addition to Hippo Health:
We actually recommend downloading at least one of these other forms of communication as well. The entire country is using these platforms so it’s best to have a back-up. If you click on the picture of each app it will take you to their website to download.
So, don’t feel like you can’t get the care you need. If you are having a healthcare issue, don’t put it off. We are adapting and we are here to help you!
