With COVID-19 vaccine eligibility that expanded on Monday, February 15, we have received many questions about how our patients can get documentation of their preexisting medical conditions to show at vaccination locations. For information on COVID-19 Vaccinations, Click Here.
Here's how we can help you:
- Get tested for COVID-19
- Get your flu shot
- Make sure your health screenings are up to date
- Get your annual check up if you did not have one this year
We are accepting in-person appointments. We want you to know that we have taken extensive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-10 at our health center. These are some of the things we continue to do:
- Reduced the number of chairs and in waiting room
- Placed plexiglass dividers between each chair
- Implemented temperature and symptoms screening
- Require all patients and staff to wear a mask
- Clean and disinfect every exam room between patients
- Deep cleaning at night using UV sterilization
In addition to in-person visits, Apicha CHC will continue to offer video visits. Not sure what a Telemedicine Visit can do for you?
Instead of traveling to Apicha, you can have a video appointment with your provider using your mobile phone, computer or tablet device that has a camera. You and your provider will be able to see and talk with each other in real time--so you can ask questions and have a conversation the same way you would when you are in our office. Your provider will review your condition and guide you about next steps like: refilling your medication, writing a prescription for a new medication or advising you whether you should go out to have labs done or postponing them.
To start your video visit is super easy: just click on a link sent to you by text. Video appointments are secure and HIPAA compliant--you just need to make sure you are in a private space where others cannot overhear the conversation.
To schedule a visit (in-person or video), please call us at 212-334-6029 or send us a message through the patient portal. Our Patient Associates will be happy to assist you.
