Dear Valued Patient,
As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to improve, the physicians at Long Island Digestive Disease Consultants are increasing our availability for in office appointments. We are committed to your health and safety, and we continue to also offer telehealth appointments for those patients who would prefer to remain at home.
All patients arriving at our office will be screened on the day of service to ensure that you:
- Have not been exposed to COVID-19 and are not experiencing flu-like symptoms (significant cough with fever and shortness of breath).
- Have not been in close contact with someone who has experienced fever, cough, or shortness of breath at any time during the last 2 weeks.
When you arrive at our office, we may ask you to wait in your car. If we do, we will call you on your cell phone when we are ready to see you. Please be aware that those patients who answer "YES" to any of the above questions must be rescheduled. Additionally, we will check your temperature in our office and we will not be able to see you if you have a fever over 99.6. You will be referred to your primary care provider for evaluation.
Please call us at 631-751-8700 to discuss scheduling an in office appointment or telemedicine visit. While all elective endoscopic procedures are being postponed until further notice, we are scheduling endoscopic procedures for patients who have urgent issues. Please feel free to call us with any questions.
We are serving our patients in the safest manner to safeguard the health and safety of our patients, our care providers, and the whole community.
