Frequently Asked Questions:
My child has been home from school / daycare due to COVID-19. Do I need to see a doctor for them to return?

I am due for my annual physical. Should I book an appointment?
Due to the current community spread of COVID-19 and in an effort to manage risk to our patients and staff it is recommended to defer in-person adult physicals. In lieu of a physical we invite patients to book a telephone appointment with their family doctor to order any necessary screening tests and renew prescriptions as appropriate. If your MD feels it necessary to see you in-person they will arrange that appointment.
