HANNIBAL, Mo. | Hannibal Regional Medical Group is now offering telehealth visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Telehealth visits will allow patients to virtually connect with a Hannibal Regional provider instead of making in-person office visits.
“For patients looking for an alternative to an in-person office visit during this time of recommended social distancing, telehealth visits are a great option,” said Dr. Pranav Parikh, Hannibal Regional chief medical officer. “Our goal is to help our community follow the CDC recommendations for protecting themselves from COVID-19 while doing everything we can to keep them well.”
A telehealth visit can be scheduled for any reason, not just a COVID-19 related illness. Patients should contact their provider's office if they are not certain their concerns can be resolved through a telehealth visit. More information or scheduling for telehealth visits are available toll free at 800-845-7407.
If patients are not experiencing flu-like symptoms and plan to be seen in person, Hannibal Regional Medical Group has implemented a screening process and visitor restrictions. Patients will be routed through the fever/virus entrance, if necessary. Additional information about COVID-19 is available online at www.hannibalregional.org/coronavirus.
