Welcome to ATL Colorectal Surgery P.C.

Covid-19: Public Health Concerns

In light of the COVID-19 National Emergency and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ 14 day “stay at home” executive order instructing Atlanta residents to stay inside their homes except to access essential services, ATL Colorectal Surgery is taking steps to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff.

Healthcare services are considered essential. As such, our office remains open for patient care, but our hours will be limited. You will receive a call prior to your scheduled visit to pre-screen you for symptoms of illness. If you have a fever or respiratory symptoms (like a cough), you cannot be seen in the office. We do not have the protective equipment available in order to safely evaluate sick patients.

Here are some additional steps that we are taking to keep you safe during this unprecedented situation:

  • We can no longer see sick patients who show signs of illness (including fever and cough) in office.
  • We only allow a well patient into the office. A well caregiver will only be allowed into the office/exam room on a limited basis as our office building is only allowing well patients to come up to the office at this time.
  • Every patient is screened to ensure they are symptom and risk free.
  • Our doctors and clinical team wash their hands before and after every patient.
  • Team members who are sick are required to stay home.
  • Our front office has been arranged to give patients 6 feet of distance.
  • Our lobby and restrooms are wiped down frequently with medical grade sanitizers.
  • Our exam rooms are wiped down after every patient with medical grade sanitizers.
  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout our office.
  • No walk-in patients will be seen.
  • If you come to the office and are found to appear ill (coughing, or having a fever), you will be asked to leave the office and proceed to the ER if your symptoms are serious.

Now Offering Telehealth Visits

Due to COVID-19, our offices have elected to use Telehealth medicine through our Healow Patient Portal. To schedule a Telehealth visit, call 404-574-5820 between the hours of 8AM and 5PM, select option 3, and one of the team members will assist with scheduling. When your call is answered, please inform the staff member you are interested in scheduling a Telehealth appointment. During the call you will need your health insurance card(s) with you to expedite the call. Your health insurance benefits will be used for these types of appointments.
