Baton Rouge Urology Patients
RE: COVID-19 Update
We hope that everyone is remaining safe during this difficult COVID-19 public health crisis. We wanted to alert to our patients that we have made some changes to our office policies for our Baton Rouge and satellite locations.
If you have an upcoming office visit for a regular follow-up or initial visit, we will contact you to arrange a telemedicine visit and/or discuss your options.
If you have an upcoming surgical or office procedure, we will contact you to discuss your individual status along with options/planning. Surgical procedures are being extremely restricted for the time being by governmental and state regulatory bodies along with public health officials. These decisions may change over time as we gain further clarity on the COVID-19 public health crisis.
If you have an urgent issue, please call our office for further instructions at 225-769-2500.
We understand that these limitations may be an inconvenience to you, but rest assured that the spirit of these changes are an attempt to deliver the best urologic care in the safest environment possible for you and our local residents we serve.
Thank you for entrusting your urological care with us. We appreciate your understanding and support.
