Coronavirus Update 5/11/2020

Resuming Elective Procedures – May 18th
Based on the guidelines released by Governor Ralph Northam, Gastro Health will resume elective procedures starting May 18, 2020.

The health of our patients and healthcare workers is paramount. Surgery centers will implement new safety measures such as increased screenings, additional personal protective equipment (PPE), and limitations on visitors. Our team will be contacting patients to discuss adjusted visit protocols, so all patients and visitors know what to expect before coming in.

Keeping You Safe

We know you may have concerns about coming to a healthcare facility, and it's important to know we are taking additional measures to ensure our care centers and surgery centers are safe places to receive and provide care. As we establish our new normal, we will work with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and our local and state officials to ensure we are following the most up-to-date guidelines. 

TeleHealth Appointments Will Continue
Gastro Health will continue to offer TeleHealth visits via Zoom in place of most in-office appointments, allowing patients to get the care they need safely from home. 

Infusion Patient Appointments Will Continue as Scheduled
During this time, it is essential for all Infusion patients to continue to attend all regularly scheduled infusion treatments to reduce risks of disease flare ups and/or hospitalization. Flares currently outweigh the chance of developing COVID-19. In the event, you are unable to make your regularly scheduled infusion appointment, please contact our office to schedule a TeleHealth appointment as soon as possible.

Please call us at 703-698-8960 with any questions you may have.
