We are here for you.
We understand the uncertainty that many have experienced because of COVID-19 pandemic. While avoiding infection should be everyone’s priority, we have received many questions about our availability to help patients with their health problems, and we want you to know we are here for you. Colorado is continuing to experience COVID infections. It is particularly important therefore that we all maintain our social distancing and watch closely for any increase in the spread of infection.
At Painted Rock Family Medicine, the health and well-being of our patients guide all that we do. Important steps we have taken for our patients include: If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or other upper respiratory symptoms, please call our main office phone number of (303) 214-0333, and we will discuss your current symptoms with you. Then we will assist you in determining how best to care for your needs. Video visits are now available for some appropriate for Telehealth problem visit, focused visit, and sick visit, which is now allowing you to the get the care you need from the comfort of your own home. Video visits are a way you can be seen quickly and safely during the COVID-19 outbreak. Instead of traveling to our offices, you can see your medical provider with live video using your computer or smartphone with a camera.
Our clinics are maintaining strict infection control. We are following the CDC guidelines for COVID. This will allow us to see everyone who needs care safely. Again, the health and well-being of our patients drive our work. Rest assured we plan to keep doing everything in our power to help you stay healthy. It is our commitment to you in these trying times.
