Ensuring the safety and security of our patients during this uncertain time is of the utmost importance at the Medical Center for Eating Disorders. We will remain available via phone and email during normal business hours as usual. However, beginning Thursday, March 19th, we will begin telemedicine-only appointments until further notice.
Here are some guidelines for the upcoming weeks:
You will receive an email with details on how to access your telemedicine session at your scheduled appointment time. At this time, all telemedicine appointments will be offered at a discounted rate.
To make the most out of your sessions, we recommend having the following items available, if possible:
Blood pressure cuff
Having these items will allow you to take your vitals with your provider’s supervision during your appointment. Click here for recommendations regarding the items above.
To schedule a telemedicine appointment and for other scheduling matters, please call or text our main office number at (713) 956-4083 or email us at email@example.com.
Prescriptions and Labs:
During this time, we will continue filling prescriptions and ordering labs (as necessary). If you need any prescriptions filled, please text your refill request to (713) 956-4083 or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the name of the medication(s), the dosage, and how often you take it. Otherwise, you may contact your pharmacy to request a refill on your behalf.
Primary Care Needs:
Dr. Tyson and Jennifer are also available as a primary care providers for our patients during this time for certain medical issues that can be diagnosed and treated via telemedicine. This way our patients can hopefully avoid going to doctor's offices and hospitals if at all possible during the pandemic.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We wish you well and hope that you and your loved ones stay safe!
