We are now offering telemedicine appointments to encourage social distancing
The Athens ObGyn team continues to evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic and develop strategies to keep everyone safe. Recently, we decided to offer telemedicine appointments to patients who do not require a face-to-face visit or a physical exam. For now, we are only offering in-person visits to patients who need urgent care or pregnancy visits.
What patients need to know about telemedicine appointments
If you are interested in telemedicine appointments, call (706) 548-4272. The scheduler will arrange a time with you. Here are some tips to make the most of your virtual visits.
• Make sure you provide an accurate phone number that can receive texts. You will receive a text message with a link to use for your appointment.
• Ensure that you have a good internet connection and a phone with video chatting capabilities so that you and your doctor can see one another.
• Try to find a quiet area for the virtual visit and prepare a list of questions to ask during the appointment.
Please note that we cannot schedule telemedicine appointments for new patients at this time.
We are available in our office for emergencies and pregnancy visits
Our doctors and staff are still seeing pregnant patients for their regularly scheduled appointments. We are also here for emergencies. Call (706) 548-4272 to schedule an appointment or if you have questions about what type of visit is best for you.
You can rest assured that your health and safety remain our primary concerns, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
