You can help keep all of us safe by:
- Vigilant hand washing with soap and water is important (alcohol gel can be used as a secondary substitute for prevention).
- If you have symptoms of fever, chills or cough, and have concerns about either the Flu or other viral conditions including Coronavirus, call your primary care physician office first for assistance.
- Please call ahead before coming into the office. For the protection of our community and other patients, TriHealth Physician Partners is utilizing a triage response which starts with a phone call and/or e-message communication.
- Important: COVID-19 and the signs of a heart attack: The warning signs of a heart attack are very similar to some of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. That is why it is VERY important that you don’t ignore those signs and symptoms. Click here for more information.
Thank you for your patience as we work together for the health and safety of all.
