SOAR Telemedicine Patient Update!

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of COVID 19 National Health Emergency. As always, call 911 or go to ER if there is trouble breathing, tight squeezing chest pain or any other emergency, do not delay.

Due to National Health Emergency and COVID 19 prevention efforts, the SOAR clinic is implementing reduced risk procedures to maximize safety, maintain medical problems under control, and follow all MN State and US Federal regulations. Virtual telemedicine visits are available and may be covered by your insurance during the Public Health Emergency.  The anticipated duration of the Public Health Emergency is about 2-3 years. I want you to be as safe and healthy as possible, and hopefully remain in the fortunate 20%-40% who never become ill.  You are like family to me and I will work hard towards this goal.

If necessary, clinic appointments are still available if you are absolutely symptom free. Precautions avoid people interacting at clinic visits, and avoid anyone transmitting this highly contagious dangerous virus. If you are symptom free, when you arrive for an appointment, stay in your car. Do not enter the building unless told to do so. Instead, call me from your car, leave a message and wait in the parking lot for further instructions. Bring a mask to wear. Please email or call with further questions, if you need more clarification.

If you have any symptoms suspicious for COVID 19, call me to reschedule your appointment. Potential COVID 19 symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, loss of smell or loss of taste. For information on COVID 19, you can review the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and MDH (MN Department of Health) websites. Again, for any emergency, call 911 or go to ER if there is trouble breathing, tight squeezing chest pain or any other emergency.

Regards and thank you for your patience during all the developments,
