Dear Madison Women’s Health Patients,
Madison Women’s Health is striving to continue to bring healthcare needs to women in the Madison area during these unnerving times. Thank you to all our patients, staff, and physicians who have worked so diligently over the last couple of months.
As we adjust our schedules and office flow to support recommendations by the CDC, we ask for your patience and understanding as we move through different phases of reopening to a fuller capacity.
Here’s what you can expect from Madison Women’s health during this summer phase (through Labor Day):
Patients and staff will be required to wear masks (cloth or surgical) while in the office unless asked to take them off by staff during appointment.
Patients may only bring one support person to their Initial OB visit and at their 12-week appointment. The support person must be masked and will have their temperature taken. Patients may call or video conference their support person during appointments. We will make exceptions for newborns or infants in a carrier.
If you need assistance during your visit, we ask that the person who brings you in waits in his/her car until your appointment is over to help us limit the number of people in the clinic at any one time.
Upon arrival, patients will call from their vehicle for registration questions and asked specific COVID-19 screening questions.
We may ask you to remain in your vehicle until your exam room is ready. This will allow us to continue to disinfect each room after each patient. A staff member will call you at your preferred number and instruct you on what exam room to go to. Patients will need to get their weight on the way to their exam room.
Once in an exam room, you will have your temperature and vitals taken.
To limit gatherings in the lobby, patients will need to call, or MyChart for follow up visits.
We will continue to make confirmation calls and may ask specific COVID-19 questions at that time. We understand that some patients may not want to receive so many calls, but it is to help streamline any possible COVID testing that may be needed before appointments.
We will continue to offer telehealth visits. If you are interested in finding out more about telehealth, please reach out to our office.
Please continue to look at our social media pages and website for any updates.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future!
Madison Women’s Health
