COVID-19 UPDATE: Implementing temporary scheduling process. The beginning of each day will be reserved for all regular visits including wellness exams, medication refills and follow-up appointments. We will then transition into the rest of the time being reserved for all symptomatic patients. At the end of every day, each clinic will be diligently cleaned. For our high-risk patients, including those over 60 years old and those with chronic illnesses, we will do all we can to address all of your needs without having to bring you into the clinic during this time. We will be contacting patients to ensure we are scheduling appointments according to these new guidelines, and appreciate all of your patience during this time. Patients should not bring anyone to their appointment, unless necessary, and make sure they are not joined by any individuals that are symptomatic. Our plan is to roll out telehealth and drive-up visits/testing to address ongoing medical needs as soon as possible and we will release more information as it becomes available. All HealthLinc patients and visitors will receive a temperature screening when entering a clinic. If a temperature greater than 100.4 degrees is detected, we will place you in a separate part of the waiting room or ask you to wait in your vehicle.
