CORONAVIRUS IMPACT UPDATE
ENDOSCOPY CENTER TEMPORARY CLOSURE
The Pennsylvania Department of Health issued new guidelines to all ambulatory surgical facilities to restrict access to endoscopy to only “life-sustaining” procedures in order to conserve medical resources and to support social distancing efforts during the Coronavirus pandemic.
We regret that PA GI’s endoscopy center, the Digestive Disease Institute, will close temporarily as of Friday, March 27, 2020.
PA GI’s OFFICES WILL REMAIN OPEN
The offices at PA GI will remain open on a limited basis.
We will now offer Telemedicine appointments, which are acceptable under new Federal and State guidelines during this health emergency.
Telemedicine can be accomplished using a Smartphone, laptop computer with camera or desktop computer with camera to allow face-to-face interaction with the physician or other medical staff. In some circumstances, telephone-only interactions may be acceptable.
Scheduled infusion services will continue at this time.
We appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this unprecedented healthcare crisis. We are committed to providing care to our patients throughout this crisis and into the future.
