With Governor Cooper’s latest announcement regarding mandatory masks and delayed phase 3, we wanted to provide an update for our patients and families. We remain open and will continue taking precautions to protect you and our staff providing high quality and safe care. Precautions we will continue to take include:
We have been and will continue to wear masks when caring for patients.
We are extensively cleaning and disinfecting patient care areas between visits.
We ask patients and visitors, coming for an in-office visit, to wear a mask. When you arrive, we will take your temperature and ask you to wait in your car until an exam room is clean and ready.
If you cannot wear a mask, we will offer a TeleHealth visit (see below).
We have extended our TeleHealth options as most insurance companies are continuing to cover these visits during the pandemic.
Patients with respiratory illness, fever, or cough will be offered a TeleHealth visit (see below).
TeleHealth is offered through your patient portal using a smartphone, tablet or computer. It is also temporarily available through FaceTime, Facebook Messenger video chat, Google Hangouts video, Zoom, Skype, or GoogleDuo all in-line with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommendation to increase access to care during the pandemic. Each of these options are covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare, due to COVID-19. Please contact your insurer prior to your visit to determine coverage.
COVID-19 Screening & Antibody Testing
Screening: We are prioritizing testing for those who meet the criteria as determined by the screening hotline (828-527-6687) or the virtual COVID-19 Screener. If you have completed one of these and were told you need to be tested please call and schedule “COVID-19 testing”.
Antibody testing: “This blood test checks for past exposure to COVID-19. It usually takes around 10 to 18 days to produce enough antibodies to be detected in the blood” (Quest Diagnostics, 2020). If you are interested in antibody testing, please call and schedule “COVID-19 antibody testing”. Quest Diagnostics. (2020). SARS-CoV-2 Serology (COVID 19) Antibody (IgG), Immunoassay.

We now offer TeleHealth
We now offer TeleHealth visits. If you are sheltering in place, staying at home, or just maintaining social distance, you can still see and speak with us. We have worked diligently to provide our patients with this valuable service. You can visit us via a video chat through your cell phone or computer. Or if you want, you can just have a phone consultation. Our staff is ready to help get you connected. As always, call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing a medical emergency.
Call our office at 828-652-8196 to schedule a TeleHealth visit or explore appointment options!
As of March 16, 2020, in an abundance of caution and in response to current worldwide COVID-19 concerns, our operations have been modified. If you are coming to our offices, please note:
1) We ask that patients call ahead if experiencing respiratory symptoms and a fever so we can appropriately screen.
2) We are working to limit the number of people in our waiting room by allowing patients to leave a mobile number so they can wait in their car after checking in and be called when it is time to check in to a room.
3) We will continue to adapt our operations to help minimize the chance of patients coming in contact with each other while still providing the care patients require.
