NOW OFFERING VIDEO EXAMS

Heart Health Center

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

For our patients’ safety, we are now pleased to offer TELEMEDICINE VIDEO EXAMS. We have a simple user-friendly program that allows patients to open a video call on their laptop, Chromebook or smartphone by simply opening an email or clicking a single link in a text message.

If you choose to have a video exam, a nurse will call you and guide you through the simple steps at the time of your appointment. We recommend this type of exam as it allows you to stay in the safety of your own home. For an appointment please call 256.766.8570, option 2.

If you are uncomfortable with a video exam, our office is open and we have implemented the safety measures of taking temperatures of all who enter the building and our staff members are wearing masks.

We hope we can play a role in addressing our community’s heart health needs and, when possible, help our patients avoid trips to the hospital where they might be exposed to Covid-19.

Please remember to wash your hands frequently, stay at home, maintain physical distance from others, and if you go outside, wear a mask or a scarf over your nose and mouth.
