Dear ITAV Family,
We hope that you are keeping well during these challenging times that we face. Please know that we are all in this together and we will work together to ensure that ITAV family patients continue to function and thrive despite the challenges that Covid-19 brings to us. As you know the government has advised social distancing to help limit the spread of the virus and to help with this, the government has eased the restrictions on telehealth so that patients are able to get the care they need without putting themselves at risk and especially our esteemed elderly population. Until the Virus is under control which will hopefully be soon, we will be conducting regular clinic via telehealth with remote credit card payments for appointments. We will be sending out individual video invitations to new and existing patients that will enable us to conduct the clinic visit. Bear with us as we transition to telehealth as there might be a few glitches but together we will get through. Normally per HIPAA, waivers are signed prior to conducting telehealth but at this emergency period, the government has waived this requirement. As always here at ITAV our patient's privacy is of utmost importance and rest assured that we will continue the strict and highest levels of patient confidentiality that we regularly employ. Please call us to schedule new and follow up appointments and get the latest on our hours as this remains a fluid situation.
Stay safe and healthy.
