Due to the shelter-in-place ordinance issued by the state of California,
you might be wondering: how can I receive medical care at a Washington
Township Medical Foundation location?
For several weeks, we’ve been partnering with public agencies to
address the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak. Your health and safety
have always been our top priority, and that’s why we’ve implemented
precautions and infection control procedures that meet or exceed the CDC's
requirements. Washington Township Medical Foundation is open and ready
to serve your health care needs and, at the same time, help to ensure
your safety and ours.
To help reduce any risk of exposure, we are conducting health visits via
phone and video. This means that patients will have a scheduled appointment
with their WTMF doctor over a phone, tablet or computer instead of in
the doctor's office.
Also known as telemedicine, telephone and video visits are widely used
by healthcare systems as a highly regarded alternative to in-person visits.
In a telehealth visit, Washington Township Medical Foundation protects
your health information through our secure network and communication system.
Please call ahead to schedule a telephone/video visit with your doctor.
