I hope you are feeling safe, well and adjusting (or trying to adjust!) to this unusual yet temporary time. For some of you, this is an easier adaptation. For others, it’s become far more stressful in many ways. However you are coping, I hope you have the love and support of family, friends, colleagues, healthcare providers and kind strangers to help carry and uplift you – in person or virtually – through this time.
Many of you are reaching out to me in need of hormone prescription refills. Some of you are due for testing (2x/year or every 6 months is required), while some are not needing testing quite yet. While many labs are remaining open during this time (i.e. Quest Diagnostics) and taking safe and precautionary measures for blood draws during Covid-19, some of you are not comfortable leaving your homes and visiting these facilities. That’s completely understandable.
So, during this uncertain and unpredictable time, I am postponing lab testing for all patients until June/July 2020 when hopefully our world and local communities are safer with far less risks. For the purpose of continuity of care and so that you continue to receive your hormones, you will need to schedule a follow up appointment with me to review everything – symptoms, changes, improvements, side effects, questions, etc. Just be sure to choose Phone or Videoconference Appointments during this time as Telemedicine continues to evolve.
I also wanted to take this time to announce that I am offering shorter appointments with a reduced fee for those patients that don’t have significant or complex symptoms to discuss and do not have labs to review. I’ve added a 15-20 minute phone or videoconference appointment for only $95 and is now available to book from my online scheduler at www.doctorkristi.com. All appointments are based on time and complexity and if you need or require more time for questions and explanations, I’m happy to change that and the billing accordingly.
