7-1-20 Our office is overwhelmed with calls and questions about Covid. Here are some links that may provide some general information. Keep in mind that these links are updated daily (sometimes multiple times / day) and while evidence driven material is often not available, you may find some information relevant to your concern. The last link, provided by Madera County Dept of Public Health, is currently posted to their website and contains scenarios that can help in determining your options if you think you have been exposed. Remember the basics: if you are sick, stay home. If you *must* go out and are symptomatic (cough, fever, chills, etc...), please wear a mask and minimize social contact. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Use hand sanitizer when appropriate and according to the manufacturers directions. If you are planning a doctors office visit and have symptoms, CALL ahead. DO NOT come to the office for an appointment unless directed by staff to do so. We have a large sign on the front door stating the same. Just call us for further directions and we'll walk you through what you need to do. We are slowly transitioning to a TeleHealth system that will allow you to speak with your provider if you are symptomatic, but you must CALL us, first. We DO NOT offer walk-in appointments at this facility. All visits, telehealth or otherwise, are by appointment only.
**Please Pay Special Attention To The Last Link** If, after reading through the information in the links above, you believe the outlined symptoms apply to you, please call our office. We are doing our best to return all calls, but we have 4 phone lines and generally 2 people available to answer or return calls. We will be returning some calls after hours in an effort to clear the backlog of messages, but we may not get to your call the same day. We are doing the best we can with the data we have, and will keep this page updated with information as soon as we are able. Lastly, if you feel you are experiencing an emergency medical situation, whether related to Covid 19, or another condition, do not call our office, call 911.
