Please do not delay appropriate visits to the ER due to fear of exposure to COVID-19. Delay of care could result in poorer overall health outcomes and even life-threatening situations. We assure you that we are treating all patients in a safe and appropriate environment, following all guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Baptist Health’s specialty clinics are open, accepting new patients and offering several options for care, including both telehealth and in-person visits.
All patients scheduled for an in-person visit at a clinic will be pre-screened for COVID-19 signs, symptoms and exposure. Our clinics are safe and follow all guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
