Due to the highly infectious nature of this disease, the CDC has recommended that patients having mild to moderate respiratory symptoms (cough, congestion, fever, muscle aches, sneezing) should be evaluated remotely through telemedicine. By doing these types of visits in a virtual capacity, it keeps the healthy patients and staff safe, while still being able to help those with symptoms that need evaluation. Patients who have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should seek emergency care immediately.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, Jones Center for Women’s Health is currently utilizing Hale Health for telehealth care, however we are still seeing patients in person.
Please use the following resources that provide instructions on how to download and utilize the the app on your mobile device.
As we continue to develop this process, we will be sure to keep all of our patients informed on instructions once the roll out of this care officially begins.
