PORT Health continues to strive to meet the needs of our patients through this difficult time. Even though COVID is still a threat, we are now giving our patients the option to have their appointments face to face with their provider. The option for remote appointments remains, however, if you prefer to be seen in the office, you are welcome to come in. Please note that you will be required to wear a face-covering that covers the mouth and nose, maintain social distancing and your temperature will be taken as you enter. Please call ahead of your appointment and let us know which option you choose. Emergency walk-in patients will also be seen face to face if so desired.
THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.
Each PORT Health program must comply with a variety of State and Federal laws, some of which will be more restrictive than HIPAA. In those cases, the program would generally comply with the most restrictive law.
