Starting Tuesday May 19th, Dr. Menn will be offering in person appointments for all matters. Patients are still welcome to choose telehealth visits instead if they prefer. While medical offices have been deemed essential businesses all along, many practices have chosen to put off preventative care and non-urgent problem visits for a time. At this point, our current local situation has stabilized and now I feel it is an appropriate time to return to the office. We will be living with this virus for a long time, and one thing all physicians are concerned about is patients putting off preventative care or problem issues for too long, and then dealing with the consequences. There is no perfect answer on how long to wait for your preventative care visits, but with proper protocols in place, I feel confident to offer these services starting now. Telehealth will continue to be a great option as well and is still encouraged as an option. See here for the many things that can easily be addressed by telehealth.
Dr. Menn will start doing routine preventative gyn care, including Pap smears, breast exams, IUD insertions, and all other consultative services for women and adolescents. To start, Dr. Menn will be having limited in office hours by appointment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am-1pm. Telehealth visits can be flexibly scheduled at those or other times by request. For the fastest response to questions and appointment requests, please wither use the portal or the contact form on the homepage.
Please see here for the new protocols and office procedures as it related to Covid-19.
