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:
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.
Specializing only in the care of your colon and rectal health, ATL Colorectal Surgery PC was founded to deliver high quality, diligent care in a comfortable, approachable atmosphere. Because we are specialists, we are sensitive to the fact that these private parts of the body may be difficult to talk about. We take our time to understand the issues you have affecting your body. We listen carefully to your concerns and will review your medical records to build a personal treatment plan. Our compassionate and dedicated staff work hard to minimize anxiety to obtain the best medical outcome for you.
ATL Colorectal Surgery is located within the Piedmont Hospital complex.
