YOU WILL RECEIVE A CALL from our Infusion Nurse for important information related to your scheduled appointment.

If you are a patient of this clinic and have a scheduled appointment

YOU WILL RECEIVE A CALL prior to your appointment to let you know about our move to telephone and virtual care during this period.

As a specialty clinic serving older adults we especially need to do our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 for the safety of patients, care partners and staff.

To do our best to continue to serve patients we will be operating by telephone and Virtual Care during this pandemic. If you are able to participate in a virtual appointment, your physician will call you on the phone number provided. Please be ready for your appointment 10 min before the anticipated start time. If you have waited for 30 min after your anticipated start time and have not received a phone call, please call our office.
