IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19 AND CLINIC PROCEDURES (updated 1/17/2021)
COVID 19 Testing: We have rapid testing and PCR testing available.
We are working with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to prepare for the COVID vaccine, however, we have not been informed when we will receive the vaccines.
Our Blue Ridge Health District (formerly Thomas Jefferson Health Dist.) website has a link to THEIR Registration Survey to sign up for Phase 1B individuals (Age 65+, essential workers, and age 16-64 with high risk medical conditions). See the BRHD site for details.
In an effort to serve our patients and be cognizant of the spread of COVID-19 we have significantly changed our policies and procedures. Three types of visits are available.
1. All private insurance companies and medicare allow Virtual Visits which are covered just like an office visit. Simply call the office and we can schedule you for a virtual-visit with your doctor at Pantops Family Medicine. We currently use Doxy.me.
2. Carside visits available for patients that have possible infections, need COVID-19 testing, or do not wish to come into the clinic. Call the office and set up an appointment time. When you arrive pull into a numbered reserve parking space to the right of the front door. Then call from the parking lot to check-in and we'll come out to you at your vehicle.
3. In-Clinic Appointments: For patients that need or want to be seen in the traditional sense in the clinic we have made significant changes. We are following strict precautions and limiting the number of patients in the building. We have also upgraded the building air filtration system to prevent circulation of airborne pathogens including COVID-19.
