Important COVID-19 Update:

Dear Patients,

We take your safety and health VERY seriously. In light of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we must take extra precautions to care for you, our staff, and all the patients who come through our clinic. 

Please see below for information about how our office is caring for our patients and community during this time. We will continue to update this page as new information becomes available. Please visit the Lowell General Hospital web-site for additional COVID 19 information: https://www.lowellgeneral.org/news-and-media/news/important-information-on-covid-19-coronavirus

At this time we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our office to all in-person appointments. You will still be able to connect with your doctor for day-to-day medical issues and questions through phone calls and telemedicine visits. Please call our office at (978) 250-9495 before going to the Urgent Care Centers or the Emergency Department.

If you are Sick

Please call the office at [office phone number] before going to the Urgent Care Centers, Emergency Department, or walking into the office.

Our medical staff will triage your symptoms and will identify a course of action to best care for your needs. We are constantly receiving updates on test protocols, test sites, and how to offer our patients testing safely and appropriately. We must be extra vigilant in these uncertain times and reduce the potential transmission of the virus.

Telemedicine Visits Now Available

In order to continue to care for our patients, we now offer Telemedicine visits. You can schedule a Telemedicine visit by calling our office at (978) 250-9495.

After you have scheduled your telemedicine visit, you will receive a communication via email with instructions for how to conduct the visit electronically.

How to Avoid Getting Sick

While there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention always recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses. Many of the things you do to help prevent colds and the flu can help protect you against other respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based gel.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands.
  • Stay home and avoid close contact with others.

Handwashing Tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

We take the care of our patients very seriously. We will remain available to provide essential care for our patients during this time of uncertainty.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support during this sensitive time.
