Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates & Patient Information
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are implementing temporary measures to ensure patient safety.
If you have or need to schedule an appointment:
Please contact our office or notify our staff at check-in if you are experiencing any of the following:
Cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath).
Flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, etc.).
Trouble breathing normally.
Patients with symptoms who require an urgent visit will need to wear a mask during an in-person appointment. Patients who do not require an urgent visit will be rescheduled for a telehealth visit (see below). If you think you may have been exposed to the new coronavirus, COVID-19 (either through travel to a high risk area or close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19), please contact us before visiting.
University of Colorado has also implemented increased restrictions for visitors. View restrictions.
Routine-care appointments such as women's wellness exams will be delayed or rescheduled for a future date. For other health concerns, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
Telehealth appointments now available.
Expanded video and phone consultation appointments are also available through the My Health Connection patient portal. You can also use the portal to email your doctor.
