Welcome to Gastrointestinal Specialists, Inc.
Gastrointestinal Specialists, Inc., has followed and will continue to follow all guidelines to the continued threat posed by the COVID-19 virus. We are implementing careful operational restrictions and thorough sanitation measures. The health, safety and well-being of our patients and staff, continues to be our main priority.
If you a fever, lower respiratory/breathing issues, have recently traveled, have ANY flu-like symptoms, and/or been exposed to COVID-19, please give us a call (804.285.8206) before your appointment. Our scheduling team will be pleased to assist you.
GSI Office Visits
We are following CDC-recommended precautions and are thoroughly disinfecting our locations three times a day. We have instituted social distancing in our waiting areas and wellness checkpoints. All patients will be assessed and cleared before being allowed to enter. We are requiring all of our personnel to wear masks and all patients to be masked during their office visit. If you do not currently have a mask, we will be happy to provide one. To further minimize risk, we ask that additional family members/friends, remain in their vehicles.
Telemedicine Appointments for Office Visits
If an in-person office visit is not required, we are offering telemedicine as a preferred option. To take advantage of this service, simply give us a call and request a telehealth appointment. You will then need to download the secure, HIPAA-compliant pMD app on your mobile device when you receive the invitation text from us. Our staff will be pleased to complete your registration and provide assistance with the app if necessary.
The protocols outlined above for our office visits are also being followed at our outpatient endoscopy centers; the Virginia Endoscopy Group. If you are having a procedure at one of Richmond’s area hospitals, please refer to their website or paperwork you may have been given as each location may have a slightly different policy.
At this time, we are performing regular screening colonoscopies and all other ‘elective’ cases. To schedule any appointment, please call us at 804.285.8206.
Until we see you, please stay safe and thank you for being a part of the GSI family.
