In addition, we are offering Telehealth visits through My Chart when appropriate.  We are asking patients to sign up for My Chart in advance; this will allow us to address any urgent visits that does not require an in office visit.  If you have not already signed up please call the office between 7:30 AM – 1:00 PM Monday - Friday. 

We will continue to be open on Saturdays for emergent illnesses.  Sundays our office will be closed but please, remember we always have staff available by phone to help you.
