The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, but Symbol keeps our Clinics safe for regular patient care and health coaching.
We take extra precautions to make sure that patients with COVID-19 are kept separated from well patients at our clinics.
Symbol Clinics are open to keep our patients SAFE, healthy and happy. Symbol is open to provide the best care in the most sanitary environment. Don't be afraid to get the medical attention you need, but do arrive with your own face mask on when we open the doors.
Calling ahead of your Clinic visits will help Symbol staff determine whether you can avoid a physical visit and get the appropriate care you need right over the phone or not. If TeleHealth isn't right for you, we'll schedule your safe visit.
Symbol staff will pre-screening for COVID-19 by phone and also read patient temperatures upon arrival at the clinic. COVID-19 testing is available at most Symbol Clinics - some with rapid results available. Call to check eligibility for onsite or in-car testing.
Symbol Clinics are thoroughly disinfected after every patient, following CDC guidelines for de-contamination of exam rooms, laboratory, restrooms, and reception areas. Regular cleaning of hard surfaces and frequently handled items will continue.
Symbol equips all Clinics with protective equipment to keep both patients and healthcare providers safe. If patients come in for an appointment with respiratory issues, Symbol can provide a face mask. Hand sanitizer is available in each room as added precaution.
Symbol Health Coaches are cleared to move back into clinics for onsite appointments at a safer 6+ foot distance with face masks.
Coaching sessions can also be conducted over the phone.
You may notice that your Symbol medical professionals and assistants are taking additional safety precautions by constantly wearing face masks, gloves, and protective eyewear. This is for their protection - and yours!
Symbol offers many ways for patients to get their prescription medications and essential health supplies. Make an appointment for pick-up in clinic. You may be offered a Prescription Drug Card for pick-up at your local pharmacy. Or, we may mail to your house.
