COVID-19 insurance update 4/17/2020*
As of 4/17, most private plans cover telemedicine visits with your own doctor (or a new doctor) for all matters, not just coronavirus. To be sure, please call your plan to ask for their procedure or website. Please keep a record of who you spoke to and when, or any websites that state their policy. Some are waiving co-pays and co-insurance for all visits. Medicare and Medicare Advantage Patients: We can provide covered telemedicine visits to members in all states while the Health Emergency continues.
You can still come to the office if you need a visit. We can also offer an outdoor visit if weather permits. For essential office visits, we are masking, practicing physical distancing, use an enhanced sanitizer, and have no more than four people in the office at any time. We ask that any visitors wear masks. For help on making a simple mask, click here.
Dr. Cheikin is also offering private (non-covered) phone and telemedicine (Zoom) visits.

Yoga is suspended for now.
Please check back for frequent updates.
