Thursday May 7th , 2020 our Ahwatukee and Sun Lakes offices, including the lab draw stations are now open. Please note that our Gilbert office is permanently closed.
TeleHealth visits will remain available for your convenience.
For everyone’s safety, we’ll be taking the following precautions:
Every person will be screened by having his/her temperature taken before entering the office. Staff and providers will have their temperature taken twice a day. Anyone with a temperature above 100°F will be advised to schedule a TeleHealth visit.
Staff and providers will be using face masks at all times.
Patients are encouraged to wear their own face mask.
After every patient visit the exam room will be disinfected with a bleach solution.
Patients with any of the following symptoms: Fever, cough, chills, sore throat, nasal congestion or body aches, will be advised to schedule a TeleHealth visit.
Patients who are considered high risk such as COPD, asthma, serious heart disease, undergoing dialysis, are immunocompromised or are taking immunocompromising medications such as Prednisone, or are currently, or have recently received chemotherapy, will be seen only through a TeleHealth visit.
We are not equipped to do in office Covid-19 testing for acute infection or provide an in person follow up after a confirmed infection or exposure. For such cases please schedule a Telehealth visit with one of our providers. Testing for the Covid-19 antibody through a blood test is now available. A positive antibody test suggests previous exposure and possible immunity, keep in mind the tests are reportedly 90% accurate.
To maintain safe distancing, only the patient will be allowed in the office, unless he/she needs assistance by one family member.
We appreciate your understanding and patience, as wait-times may be longer than usual. We will take every precaution to protect our patients and staff.
EXPERIENCE YOU NEED
For many people seeking healthcare, an internal medicine specialist is often their first stop. Internists are trained not only to diagnose the broad range of illness and disease in adults, but also to provide a level of primary care that goes beyond treating the immediate symptoms.
Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor,” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
WHAT WE LOVE TO DO
