Your health is of paramount importance to us at North Bethesda Primary Care. That’s why we are taking the utmost precaution during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Remote Access to the Doctor
Dr. Possner is dedicated to being accessible and responsive to his patients. This continues to be the case, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. During this time, in order to minimize patients' exposure to others, Dr. Possner is providing care via the patient portal, phone, or video visits rather than in person whenever possible.
You may be surprised to learn that there are a large number of health concerns that can be addressed remotely. It is one of the safest ways to get the healthcare you need while limiting your exposure to contagious infections, such as COVID-19.
Sometimes an in-person visit is unavoidable. Should you require an in-person visit to North Bethesda Primary Care, rest assured that we are making on-site visits as safe as possible. Our cleaning and disease-prevention procedures follow the guidance set forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What to Expect
The following specific precautions are in place for in-office visits during this time, including for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID:
- Protective face coverings are mandatory for all patients at all times
- Patients are screened for COVID-19 before being allowed into the office
- Only one patient will be allowed in the waiting room at any given time
- Patient visits will be alternated between two exam rooms
- Hand sanitizer will be made available and its use required upon entry to our office
- Social distancing practices will be followed wherever possible
Please note: If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the disease, or tested positive yourself, please let us know and we will help make appropriate arrangements so you can get the care you need in the safest way possible.
