Do not be afraid or delay medical care if you need it due to fear of contracting coronavirus. People are waiting too long to get medical attention for other illnesses and issues which can sometime cause more severe problems. Please don’t hesitate to get medical care if you need it, as you would prior to the pandemic.
Contact 215-PREVENT if you are interested in learning more about our medical practice or want to make an appointment for a consultation.
During this pandemic, Prevention First Healthcare is taking the appropriate steps to protect our patients as well as our staff.
Please review our Coronavirus/Covid-19 information for patients.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, alteration in taste or smell, body aches, headache, sore throat or diarrhea, please call the office at 215-PRE-VENT and we will direct you how to proceed. All patients are screened by phone before appointments are scheduled. In certain circumstances patients are evaluated while they remain in their car. Their temperature is taken and Covid-19 testing may be performed as well, via nasal swab.
Our office remains open to serve our patients with all of their healthcare needs as it always has. -We see one patient at a time, with no one in the waiting room. -Our patients are given a mask and gloves upon entry to the office. -The rooms are disinfected thoroughly between visits and all staff are practicing social distancing, washing hands, using hand sanitizer, and wearing masks & gloves. -We offer coronavirus antibody testing from blood samples. These are sent to either Lab Corp or Quest to ensure reliability.
It is important to see our patients In-Person. Many times the diagnosis of medical problems can only be made by performing a physical examination in conjunction with taking medical history. Often, just looking at a patient is an indication of how ill they may be. We are also continuing to coordinate ALL aspects of medical care by directly communicating with subspecialists and arranging appointments, even during this period of time where there is limited access to care.
We continue to provide after-hours care as I may be reached directly by my cell phone for urgent problems.
It remains our privilege at Prevention First Healthcare to care for the many people who trust us with the most important thing in their life, their health.
