Our Stance On COVID-19
The physicians at Hunterdon Otolaryngology & Allergy Associates are committed to your health and safety as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread. We are monitoring the NJ Department of Health, CDC, and WHO websites, and taking all necessary precautions.
At this time, our office remains open. In the interest of public health, we are trying to limit office visits to those that are absolutely necessary. We are also utilizing telehealth technology when applicable (see more information below). If you feel you should be seen, please call our office at (908) 788-9131.
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.
For many, we will try to solve your problem with a virtual (telehealth) visit. A simple video chat platform will allow you to talk with one of our physicians from a location of your choice. The virtual visit is quite simple to set up. All you need is an email address and smart phone or computer with audio and video capabilities. From there, our staff will walk you through the log in process to ensure you have a seamless virtual visit.
If your problem cannot be adequately addressed via the telehealth option, we will discuss the appropriateness of an office visit. We understand our patients continue to require ENT expertise despite the coronavirus crisis. We are here to help. Call our office at (908) 788-9131 to schedule your telehealth appointment.
In this time of great uncertainty, please know that the dedicated physicians and staff at Hunterdon Otolaryngology & Allergy Associates are here to care for you and your loved ones.
