At Edmunds Gastroenterology, the care and safety of our patients is our top priority. We are making every effort according to national and local guidelines to maximize your safety regarding COVID-19.
We will remain open and be available to address all of your gastrointestinal needs on a daily basis.
Elective procedures such as screening colonoscopies and surveillance studies for known Barrett's esophagus and a history of colon polyps will be scheduled once COVID-19 is controlled and in accordance with local and public recommendations. Unless there is an acute need for an in person return visit, visits will be performed by visual or digital telemedicine.
Extensive measures are being taken to maximize the safety to our patients and staff. Questionnaires will be given to every patient coming to the office to assess for recent fevers, respiratory illness, travel between states and out of the country. All patients and staff will be checked for any evidence of fever upon arrival to our facility. Patients having any of these findings will be rescheduled. Please call our office at 865-851-7771 if you have any of the above issues or questions regarding COVID-19. Only patients will be allowed in the office. Family members and friends will be asked to wait outside of the office.
