Virginia Arrhythmia Consultants COVID-19 update (March 20, 2020)
As cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to increase throughout the US and locally in Virginia, we are continuing to follow local hospital, department of health and CDC guidelines and want to keep you updated and safe.
If you have an appointment scheduled with our providers, please consider changing to a telehealth visit. All you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer with video capabilities. Additional information can be obtained at https://www.vaheartbeat.com/telehealth/
For now, our offices will remain open for patients who are unable to do a telehealth visit. This will allow you to receive care without going to the emergency room.
- After checking in, you will be directed promptly to an exam room to keep our waiting room time to zero minutes.
- We ask that no more than one person accompany you to your visit.
- Our exam rooms will be cleaned thoroughly between patients and at the end of the day.
- If you are having any respiratory symptoms, cough, fever or recent travel PLEASE contact our office before your visit. We are unable to test for COVID-19 in our office.
If you are scheduled for a procedure, please check with our office. A lot of cardiac procedures are not elective according to latest CDC communication and we are following hospital guidelines strictly. If the procedure is elective, we will likely postpone at this time.
We take your health and safety of our patients, staff and community sincerely and are committed to providing excellent care. If you are running out of medications or have any other questions, please contact us by patient portal or telephone at 804-410-9749.
