Hunterdon Otolaryngology & Allergy Associates is committed to your health and safety as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread. We are monitoring the CDC and WHO websites and taking all necessary precautions.
At this time, our office remains open for urgent visits only. We are postponing all routine follow-up appointments and elective surgeries. If you feel you should be seen, please call our office at (908) 788-9131.
For most, we will try to solve your problem with a virtual (telehealth) visit utilizing a video chat platform. Utilizing telehealth capabilities is in the public’s best interest. The virtual visit process is quite simple. All that one needs is a valid email address and a device with audio and video capabilities (smartphone or computer). Our staff will provide a few instructions to help you plan for your virtual visit.
If your problem cannot be adequately addressed via the telehealth option, we will discuss the appropriateness of an office visit. The unprecedented circumstances the COVID-19 virus presents require all of us to become more flexible in how we pursue your health care needs.
Please note, we CANNOT perform testing for coronavirus on-site at either of our offices. Please contact your primary care physician, Urgent Care, or your local emergency room for an evaluation if you:
- Have a fever, cough or cold/flu-like symptoms, or symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough or shortness of breath)
- Have been exposed to someone that has been diagnosed with coronavirus or someone that has had contact with anyone under quarantine for the virus
- Have recently traveled outside of the United States or been exposed to anyone returning from outside of the United States
If you have any of these symptoms and have an upcoming appointment with your Hunterdon Otolaryngology & Allergy Associates provider, we ask you to place a call to our office to reschedule your appointment.
