Virtual Doctor Visits Are The New Reality Show in Hannibal
Hannibal Regional is now offering telehealth visits to further support our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth visits will allow patients to virtually connect with a Hannibal Regional provider instead of an in person office visit.“For patients looking for an alternative to an in-person office visit during this time of recommended social distancing, telehealth visits are a great option,” says Dr. Pranav Parikh, Chief Medical Officer at Hannibal Regional. “Our goal is to help our community follow the CDC recommendations for protecting themselves from COVID-19 while doing everything we can to keep them well.”
A telehealth visit can be scheduled for any reason, not just a COVID-19 related illness. Contact your provider's office if you are not sure your concern can be resolved through a telehealth visit. Call (800) 845-7407 to schedule a telehealth visit or contact your provider’s office with additional questions.
If patients are not experiencing flu-like symptoms and plan to be seen in person, Hannibal Regional Medical Group has implemented a screening process and visitor restrictions. Patients will be routed through the fever/virus entrance if necessary.
