HELEN H. KIM, MD
As we continue to navigate the Covid-19 crisis, our office makes every effort to keep the safety of our patients and staff top of mind.
We require all patients and staff to wear masks and ask any non-patient visitors to remain in vehicles while waiting for their family member or friend.
Each exam room is thoroughly sanitized between patient visits.
We use non-touch temperature checks and wear gloves for all contact interactions.
Offering telemedicine has been a great added dimension to our office.
Accessing telemedicine is simple and requires just a smartphone or even a desktop computer if you have a webcam. Once you schedule the visit, my office will guide you on how the telemedicine visit works.
A telemedicine visit allows an initial conversation regarding your health concern.
- I can offer my initial assessments and recommendations.
- If any imaging or lab tests are required, we - can order them in advance of your in-person office visit.
- Keep in mind though that if surgery is planned, an in-person visit will still be needed for physical examination which is required before surgery.
After surgery, many postoperative visits can also be accomplished via a telemedicine visit.
