Corona Virus Statement

Dear valued patient:

 

As you are aware, Coronavirus has become a world wide Pandemic. We, the staff and physicians at Amarillo Heart Group, are implementing extraordinary measures to prevent the spread of the virus in our community, while we continue to provide care for your cardiovascular illness. 

 

If you have a fever, cough or sore throat or feeling fatigue or ill, or have recently traveled abroad or to areas in the US with high incidences of Coronavirus infections, we ask that you postpone and reschedule your routine clinic visits to Amarillo Heart Group for 1-2 months out.  However, if you have increasing chest pains or shortness of breath that cannot wait that long, we ask you to call before your appointment so that we can take precautionary measures. One of our nurses will speak to you before your arrival.

 

Upon your arrival, if you have any symptoms of fever, cough or sore throat as stated earlier, or if you have recently traveled abroad or to areas in the US with high incidences of Coronavirus infections, we may send you home or direct you to visit with your primary care physicians.

 

After your arrival, we ask that you come to the waiting room and sit by yourself. Please do not bring children to your visit.  Your friends or family should wait in the car to avoid close contacts and potential exposure. If you have health or language issues that require constant assistance, we ask that only one family member stay with you. You can call your friend or family member to drive to the front door to pick you up after your visit.

 

We, at the Amarillo Heart Group, want to reassure you that all of our resources will be available to help and support you, our patients and the community, to get through this time of crisis.  

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in our efforts to contain and prevent the spread of this Coronavirus.
