We wanted to update you as we enter the next phase in reopening Guilford Medical Associates on 6/1/20. Despite national trends showing a decline in COVID-19 rates, we continue to see steady numbers of new cases and an increase in hospitalizations within our community. We feel it is as important as ever to remain vigilant and to follow the CDC recommendations to wear face coverings when in public, to socially distance and avoid crowds, and to wash your hands frequently. For many of you, staying home remains the best line of defense. We also recognize that some patients are delaying necessary acute and preventive care that remains vital to your health. With this in mind we plan to slowly increase the number of patients being seen in the office starting June 1st. We will see most acute issues in the office. We will continue to isolate patients with respiratory symptoms to the Henry St. side of the building using a separate entrance and exam rooms. We will require that all patients wear face coverings when entering the office. All patients will wait in their cars and will be escorted directly to a clean exam room for the entirety of their visit. Check in and check out will occur in this room to limit the number of interactions and congestion within the office. Telehealth options are still available and may be encouraged by your Provider for Annual Wellness/Preventive Visits. All non-acute routine office visits (ie. Diabetes and Blood Pressure checkups) will remain virtual for now to limit the number of patients physically in the office at one time. We will work with you to determine the most appropriate option for you as Guilford Medical’s primary focus continues to be maintaining your health while keeping you safe during this extraordinary time.
GMA is here for our patients and we always have a physician available on call after hours and on the weekend to provide guidance. If you are experiencing severe shortness of breath you should call 911 and go to your local emergency room for evaluation.
Please continue to monitor our website (www.guilfordmedical.com) as processes and procedures will continue to evolve and updated information will be posted there.
Thank you for your trust and confidence in the physicians and staff at Guilford Medical Associates, PA.
