Dear Patients of Barry Pointe Family Care,

 
Our practice is committed to caring for you during this unprecedented time. As we adapt and respond to COVID-19, we are taking steps to provide an even safer environment within our practice.  We assure you that we follow  CDC recommended mask and vaccine health safety and mitigation measures within our practice. We will continue to care for patients with all concerns including in-clinic procedures, referrals, and any urgent needs. Nurse triage will also still be available to answer questions.
 
In order to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 while also preserving quality care, we have implemented the following changes:

If you can answer yes to any of the following- please do your part and stay home.

  • Do you have shortness of breath?
  • do you have a fever?
  • Do you have a cough?
  • Have you traveled outside to any areas there are "hotspots" for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone that has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
  • No companions allowed with patient- UNLESS patient is a minor or has communicative, cognitive or mobility issues.
  • Telehealth visits (see section below) are available upon request.  Please check with your insurance carrier to see if they are still covering telehealth visits.  You may see one of our physicians or nurse practitioners remotely via video using your mobile device or computer.
  • We have begun screening patients at the check-in.  Patients with concerning respiratory symptoms will be asked to reschedule and guidance on home care will be provided.
  • In an effort to reduce waiting room time and crowding, we ask that all sick patients remain in your vehicle while you call us to “check-in”.  You will then be notified via your cell phone when the medical assistant is ready to bring you back for your appointment.

It is our goal to provide safe, compassionate care as we navigate this temporary new normal.  Thank you for trusting us with your health.
