GI Associates is pleased to announce the implementation of telehealth virtual visits for new and established patients.
We can assess and treat a variety of gastrointestinal issues through a secure video call from our office to your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Simply call our office at 877-442-7762 to request a TeleMedicine virtual visit. You may also request an appointment online and our staff will help you through the process to determine whether a TeleMedicine visit is right for you.
Preparing for your GI Associates Telehealth Visit:
To see if your device is compatible with our internet-based virtual platform, test it here.
Testing in advance will assure that your device is properly enabled so you can fully benefit from the visit.
What happens on the day of my Telehealth Virtual visit:
- At your scheduled appointment time, you will receive a text message from your GI Associates provider inviting you to the call.
- Click on the link to Check into your provider’s virtual waiting room via doxy.me.
- The provider will see you enter the waiting room and will start the virtual visit.
In response to COVID-19, we are implementing CDC guidelines to screen patients when making an appointment and upon arrival to an appointment. Patients with cough, fever, and/or shortness of breath will be asked to reschedule. If they also have traveled to a designated at-risk country and/or been in close contact with a person who has confirmed COVID-19, they will be provided a mask and directed to contact the Aspirus COVID Hot Line at 844.568.0710 for screening.
Drivers and guests accompanying patients will be asked to wait in their cars while the appointment is conducted. Drivers for procedure appointments will be called with the results prior to picking up the patient.
GI Associates is committed to providing a safe environment of care. Given heightened concern about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, additional cleaning will be performed in our waiting areas, bathrooms and care giving spaces throughout the day.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work together to foster good health in our communities.
