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.
