In order to protect our patients and office staff during this COVID-19 pandemic, Gastrointestinal Specialists will be canceling all non-emergent visits at all of our offices for the upcoming weeks.

We are pleased to inform you that we have just instituted technology that will enable our providers to perform telemedicine/virtual office visits, in lieu of an actual office visit, so we can continue to provide you with uninterrupted care. You will be able to have face-to-face video and audio contact with your provider.

Please contact the office to schedule a telemedicine/virtual visit at (508) 588-6700 > option 1.

If you have gastrointestinal symptoms that you feel are urgent or can’t wait, please don’t hesitate to call (508) 588-6700 > option 3. Your provider will be notified promptly of your problems and concerns, and you should expect a call back from your provider at his/her earliest convenience.

Virtual visit by telemedicine is easy to use. You will need either a smartphone or computer with internet access and a camera to get started. When you call to schedule your e-visit, you will be given further instructions and our provider links are available below.
