As the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, continue to rise quickly in the United States, it is important for all of us to be aware of the symptoms and seek medical care when necessary. Patients with COVID-19 experience respiratory distress, ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness and death.

Common Symptoms

Call our office to make an appointment if you experience any of the following symptoms, which may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

You can also speak to our staff about how you can save time and money with telemedicine. Telemedicine is a good option for these scenarios:

  • Patients who are unable to leave the house due to sickness or weather conditions
  • Diagnoses of common medical problems such as headache, sore throat, back pain, digestive troubles
  • Inquiries about various medical issues for home treatments
  • Post-treatment check-ins or follow up for chronic care
  • Faster refill of short-term medical prescriptions
  • Holidays, weekends, late night or any other situation when regular medical care is not possible

To book a telemedicine appointment with me, download the Healow app from the App Store or Google Play, and call our office for your username and password.

Be well.
