CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATE

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATE

As part of the New York City Healthcare Community, we are committed to the health and safety of our patients, community, and providers as our first priority. We have been through a lot during the last few months. Many of you have inquired about scheduling your annual appointments or other types of visits since the health crisis began and we are happy to inform you that we are now scheduling office appointments to address all of your Gynecology and Obstetric needs. We will also continue to offer Telehealth appointments.   

Fortunately, as a medical and surgical practice, many of our clean and sterile techniques are second nature to us and due to COVID19, we have already implemented special measures to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff:  


Your comfort and safety is our priority. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We have missed you all and look forward to safely and confidently caring for you at your next appointment at OBGYN Westside.

TELEHEALTH SERVICES

As our in-office services evolve to accommodate the Covid-19 emergency, we are pleased to continue delivering high-quality care to our patients via telemedicine, phone calls, and MyChart communication. Many insurance companies are now paying for these services without passing the cost to patients (by waiving copayments and deductibles), while some are still updating their policies. Please reach out to our billing department and/or your insurance carrier if you have received a bill for a remote-care service.

Additionally, you can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by taking these actions:
