Coronavirus (COVID-19) & Telehealth Updates

Methodist clinics are open and ready to help you

Dear Patient,

At Methodist, our commitment to be your trusted source for healthcare is even more essential during this difficult time. The health and wellness of our patients, our communities, physicians, and our front-line staff will always be our highest priority.

First and foremost, we want you to know our clinics are open to serve you during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please be assured that keeping our clinics clean and safe is a top priority, as we understand that in some cases you may have a condition that is best served by seeing your doctor in person.

However, during this time, we are rapidly evolving to provide care in ways that do not require an in-person visit. Below, we have detailed several of the care options we have developed with your convenience and safety in mind.

Established patients with scheduled appointments

Patients with upcoming appointments will be contacted by their providers’ office to determine which visit type is most appropriate for their healthcare needs. If possible, the office will work with you to transition your appointment to one of the following visit types:

  • Epic video visits - a virtual visit with video conducted through MyChart
  • TeleVideo visits - a virtual care visit conducted on FaceTime, Google Duo, or Skype
  • Telephone visits - a visit conducted only over the telephone

We are particularly excited about how these virtual visits allow you to interact with your physician via smart phone from the safety and convenience of your home.

Patients who need to schedule a new appointment

New or established patients needing to schedule a new appointment can call their doctor’s office, and office staff will help determine if the visit can be conducted utilizing a virtual visit platform. Established patients can also request appointments via MyChart for most locations.

Other care and communication

We are committed to providing care for you and your family during this difficult time. We sincerely appreciate the trust you have placed in us and we will work together to keep our community safe and well.
