PROTECTING OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF

First Choice Primary Care is working hard to to protect our patients and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak. We continue to work together with other health systems in central Georgia to monitor the coronavirus pandemic. 

As we begin to move away from the restrictions that COVID-19 has brought upon us, we are taking certain measures to ensure we are providing our patients, providers, and staff the safest environment possible.

 

ACTIONS WE ARE TAKING

In order to keep you safe at home or if you are experiencing symptoms of a respiratory infection, fever, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, we will ask you to complete your visit through telehealth. Our staff will be happy to assist you in this process. It is very easy and you can connect directly with your provider. 

 

Social Distancing

To prevent the spread of disease we will ensure everyone maintains 6-feet between each other at all times. In some cases, we may have patients wait in their car until being called in for their appointment.

Fever Checking and  COVID-19 Screening Questionaire

All staff and patients will have their temperature checked  and will complete a screening questionnaire as their enter our facilities. Anyone with a temperature above the threshhold set by management will have to wait in their car until checking with a provider on next steps. We also are asking more questions to anyone scheduling a preventative measure to ensure patient safety. 

Wearing Masks at All Times

Our staff will wear masks at all times and we are asking all patients to wear face coverings. If you have a medical mask, homemade cloth mask, hankerchie, or scarf at home, please bring it with you. 

TeleVisits

We will continue to champion virtual Televisits for any condition and/or syptoms that do not require in in-person exam. YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN TELEHEALTH VISITS IF YOU HAVE PATIENT PORTAL ACCESS AND/OR HAVE A SMART PHONE WITH A CAMERA. To learn more about Televisits click here
