In an effort to provide continuity of care for our high-risk patients during the COVID-19 pandemic the Florence Endocrine Clinic will be offering limited appointments by tele-health. This will be a virtual face-to-face appointment with one of our healthcare providers. This option is only available to ESTABLISHED patients, new patients must be seen in person.
In accordance with CMS, Federal, State, and insurance guidelines; telehealth requires the use of both audio AND video communications. At this time the Florence Endocrine Clinic is conducting these visits using the Google Meet platform. This is a HIPAA compliant platform and we maintain the appropriate BAA contract on file with Google and parent company Alphabet. Patients are NOT required to have a Google account to use this system.
