Covid-19 Update

Dear Patients,

Due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak, we have been forced to limit our office appointments and surgery schedule. Since this is a very fluid situation, we will update the web site continuously with new information.If you have questions, please call the office and we are happy to call you back or set up a Telemedicine appointment (you must have a My UPMC account, click HERE to learn more).

As of Monday 3/30, from yesterday’s press conference, it appears the Guidelines for COVID-19 will be in force through April.  At the moment, elective surgery at St Margaret’s Hospital has been cancelled, but time sensitive surgery is being done on an emergency basis. No date to resume surgery has been set.  Please contact the office if you have surgery scheduled.

As far as office appointments, we are seeing new patients with problems that require immediate attention, or can provide Tele-medicine appointments.  Follow-up and post-op patients are being called by our physicians and medical providers to assess their medical conditions and are being seen as necessary in the office or by Tele-medicine.  We are offering to schedule patients beginning in May but it is still unknown when we can return to a normal work schedule.  Please call the office with any questions.  We are striving to care for all your medical needs during this difficult time.

Of course, if you are sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath), have been exposed to COVID-19, or have traveled domestically or outside the United States in the last 2 weeks, you CANNOT be seen in the office, and should call your PCP.
