Our top priority at Atlantic Digestive Specialists is the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff. With that in mind, we are taking precautions and following CDC guidelines to minimize your risk of exposure to COVID-19.
We apologize for any inconvenience these measures may cause, but ask that you bear with us as we navigate the changes that have occurred because of the spread of the Coronavirus in this region.
We are currently seeing patients at our Portsmouth and Somersworth office. Call 603-692-2228 for appointment.
Screenings for COVID-19
When you arrive at our office you will be asked questions to ensure that you have not been exposed to COVID-19 and are not potentially infectious to others. You will be asked if you have recently travelled, been ill, or exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID.
Non-urgent Elective Procedures
We have decided to delay all procedures that are elective and non-urgent, based on new recommendations from the gastroenterology professional societies. Because of the evolving nature of this situation we cannot make a determination yet about when such procedures will be rescheduled. Your physician will review your situation to determine whether your procedure will need to be rescheduled. Please contact our office if you have any questions regarding a scheduled procedure.
We are now actively scheduling patients who meet certain criteria to have a physician (or physician assistant or nurse practitioner visit) via a telemedicine linkup. This is so we can minimize concerns about spreading the COVID-19 virus while responding to the necessary healthcare needs of our patients.
If you have a scheduled telehealth visit you will be sent a link to join your visit. We will request that you login five minutes before your appointment time. You will need to have an internet connection on a device with a camera and microphone.
