To our valued patients and families,

 

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, your healthcare team at STAR Family Health Team wanted to reach out and offer support during this uncertain time. This is a VERY SERIOUS, and rapidly evolving situation and Public Health recommendations are changing daily, sometimes hourly, so we encourage you to access our federal and local Public Health websites for the most up-to-date information:

At STAR Family Health Team, our goal is to minimize potential exposure to as many people as possible, while freeing up resources to attend to those who require urgent care. In order to do this, we will be making changes to the way we deliver your care.

 

We are reviewing our schedules and triaging incoming appointments. Those that can be accomplished safely by telephone or a virtual visit will be booked as such. Those visits that are of a more urgent nature and require an in-person visit, will still be offered this option. Some routine visits that require an in-person assessment may be deferred (i.e. routine physicals, pap tests, visits for insurance purposes, etc.). If you have an appointment scheduled currently, you may be contacted to suggest deferring or changing the modality of the visit, if deemed appropriate by your healthcare provider.
