StayWell Health Center Opens Tele-Medicine to all patients
Starting immediately, StayWell Health Center is now accepting calls for Tele-Medicine. During these trying times, StayWell understands that our patients may not feel comfortable leaving their house to see the doctor or bringing a child or family member into the office but may have medical concerns or appointments they do not wish to miss.
StayWell encourages patients to call 1-203-756-8021 for a pre-screening with one of our medical staff. This call will determine if patients will be able to have a phone appointment with a medical professional or if your symptoms are severe enough to require an in-person visit. Tele-Medicine is open for Adult and Pediatric medicine with the patients Primary Care Physician (PCP). Appointments are available for routine follow-ups as well as annual wellness visits (Medicare patients), and acute care if appropriate. If patients have a smart phone or tablet, the provider will send a text with a link to imitate a video telemedicine visit. If patients do not have this option, the visit is completed over the phone.
“After recently having a severe case of the flu, it was great to be able to keep my regular follow-up visit for my blood pressure and other issues over the phone. I was able to talk to my regular provider over the phone about all the things we discuss in person, but I didn’t have to go into the office and possibly be exposed to some other virus. Very convenient, safe and same great care!” Ron, age 76
