A Message To All Of Our Patients:
We apologize for causing any confusion and lack of information with the sudden closure of our offices. We are working to ensure the safety of our staff as well the health of our patients during this COVID-19 pandemic. Both are paramount to us. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this ever-changing environment.
As of today, all our locations (Chesapeake, Norfolk, Virginia Beach) are closed until further notice for in-person appointments; HOWEVER, we are offering appointments via telemedicine. The intention is to avoid contributing to the spread of the virus in a busy waiting room where patients are unable to practice social distancing. We certainly realize that telemedicine will never adequately replace face to face interactions/examinations with our patients, but it seems like the best option at present. Our office staff will be reaching out to those that have appointments scheduled to cancel or reschedule for a telemedicine appointment. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine appointment, please call one of our office locations and a representative can help you.
We are offering in-person appointments for our asthmatic patients who are being treated with biologic medications (Xolair, Fasenra, Nucala, Dupixent).
Regarding allergy injections, we have decided not to administer them at this time. We have a great number of patients receiving allergy injections, and cessation of this service will eliminate a great number of foot traffic in our lobbies and hopefully reduce patient-staff exposure to the virus. We understand that this means that allergy-asthma symptoms may flare. Please reach out to us if this is the case so that we may help control your symptoms via alternate methods.
If you would like to schedule a telemedicine appointment a front desk representative at each location can help. Have questions related to your allergy injections or have any questions related to your current care, please call one of our locations and they will contact the Provider. The numbers are listed on this website.
