Our top priority at Atlantic Digestive Specialists is the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff. We have learned a lot about COVID-19 since it first began spreading across our nation, and we have made changes to ensure that you receive safe, exceptional digestive tract care for your optimal GI health.
Office Visits During the COVID-19 Pandemic
As the pandemic continues to threaten our community, we are limiting in-person office visits to those patients who are not appropriate for virtual appointments. Our Portsmouth and Somersworth offices take all the necessary precautions to protect the health of those physically visiting our practices.
We have been surprised by the success of telemedicine. Many of our patients have embraced virtual appointments with our medical providers and have expressed a preference for them over in-person visits. Our providers agree.
Please call to schedule your telemedicine [or in-person, if required] appointment Monday through Friday: 603-692-2228.
We are currently scheduling most patient appointments with our medical providers as online telemedicine visits.
All you need is a smart device (cell phone, tablet) or computer and a good audio/video internet connection, and you and your medical provider will be able to visit like you would in the office. If you are unable to have a video connection, your visit may be by telephone only.
Once you have scheduled your telemedicine appointment, we will send you a link. We request that you log in five minutes before your appointment time.
Atlantic Digestive Specialists continues to provide infusions to treat our patients with gastrointestinal diseases or disorders that prevent the digestive system’s normal functioning, such as Crohn’s Disease. From what we have learned about this virus, you have a much higher risk of having a flare-up of your disease than you do of contracting COVID-19. We urge you to continue your infusion therapy.
