Expansion of Telehealth Services Currently Offered

As we navigate through social distancing in the time of COVID-19, we want to make sure we are still able to provide continued care for patients. The great news is that commercial payers have followed the direction of Medicare in covering telehealth visits. This applies to our current patients and anyone who is establishing care with us for the first time. Please call us to schedule your one on one consultation with a physician from the comfort of your home. We can address any questions, concerns and establish any follow up visit needs. Many providers at this time are utilizing this platform to communicate with their patients in order to provide continued care to those who are not able to come into the office in person. Please call (813) 315-4327 and request to schedule a telehealth appointment at a time and date of your convenience.

Medicare Covers Telehealth

Medicare is now issuing temporary coverage of telehealth services. If you are a medicare recipient and would like to have a virtual visit with your physician all from the comfort of your home, we are ready to help. Tampa Bay Hearing and Balance Center is taking appointments for telehealth services. Please give us a call and we will be happy to schedule an appointment with your physician.

COVID-19 UPDATE

In accordance with federal guidelines, any patients who are experiencing cough and/or fever, or any symptoms of respiratory illness should call their primary care provider for further instructions. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have a scheduled appointment with our office, we are happy to reschedule your visit for another date that is convenient for you and when you are feeling better. Any patients who present with symptoms of a respiratory virus will be directed to their primary care.
