Seeing a Doctor During the COVID-19 Pandemic
These are challenging times, and so we have decided to change our strategy in an effort to better serve our community. That is why we are now implementing virtual medical consultations.
If you feel you may urgently need a dentist or doctor but want to save a trip to the emergency room, if you need a refill on a prescription, or just want to discuss medical concerns involving your face or mouth, please call and schedule a consultation today. Even if we can’t help, we can recommend you to someone who can!
How it Works
We will be using Zoom (a HIPAA compliant videoconferencing platform) to consult with patients. Call or reach out via our Web Chat to schedule your virtual consultation appointment. After you are scheduled, we will email with two links: One to your Zoom meeting, and one to our patient registration paperwork, which you can also find here. This must be completed before your appointment.
Preoperative Consults: You will meet virtually with Dr. Holtzen and necessary team members to evaluate your needs and discuss prospective surgery (if surgery is necessary). We will also be able to estimate out-of-pocket expenses and review all paperwork. Then, we will schedule for surgery at an appropriate time based on current CDC guidelines. As the situation changes, we will adjust the timing of patient’s pending procedures accordingly.
Postoperative Consults: You will meet virtually with the doctor and necessary team members to check up on your status after surgery and address any potential concerns.
If you need urgent medical (in your mouth or face) or urgent dental advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule a consultation. We are here to help!
