What to expect when visiting your UofL Health provider and facility
Examples of signs you may see at your UofL Physicians provider office or UofL Health facility.
We know the last couple of months have been challenging for you and your family. With everything you are facing externally, it shouldn’t be difficult for you to seek health care.
At the height of the coronavirus pandemic in our state, we know many of you put off having your routine check-ups and decided to wait to have that annoying ailment looked at by a doctor.
“I want to encourage you to use this time to schedule your health visit,” Wade Mitzel, UofL Physicians COO, said. “Now that many of the directives from the Commonwealth of Kentucky have lifted we can help meet the needs of our patients. If you put off a check-up or maybe you are experiencing a new health concern you want to address with a doctor, please don’t put off seeking care.”
Mitzel shared that patients now have more options when seeking care.
“We’ve heard from our patients and some are ready for that one-on-one, in-person visit with their doctors, and others are excited about using telehealth for its convenience and ease of use,” Mitzel said.
Telehealth became a necessity for patients to be able to have an appointment and “see” their provider during COVID-19 and stay-at-home orders.
We have learned from our early adapter service lines, such as psychiatry, and through our nearly 25,000 telehealth appointments held during the last three months that there are many benefits to telehealth for our patients.
