Many King's Daughters' Health providers (physicians/nurse practitioners) are now providing Tele-Health (virtual visits) for their patients.

To schedule a Tele-Health appointment, or to learn more about Tele-Health options, patients may contact their personal care provider. KDH team members will explain the process and, if appropriate, establish a time to connect with the provider.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic continues, a patient's personal health is equally important, especially for patients who may have chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes. Patients are encouraged to speak with their provider and not allow the fear of COVID-19 keep them of maintaining their overall health.

KDH providers are also available for acute care visits, whether in person, or via Tele-Health.

If a patient needs to be seen in the office, KDH has established policies to best ensure the safety of patients and staff members, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Patients experiencing life-threatening symptoms - such as chest pain, breathing difficulties, etc. (whether COVID-19 related or not) should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.
