South Lyon Family Docs – COVID 19 Update II

Please note, we are considered an essential healthcare business, and we are still open to care for your healthcare at this time.

Decisions about which specific appointments to cancel are being made by your medical team, based on the best interest of the patient. Patients will be contacted if their appointment is impacted. Not taking care of chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc., can make you more prone to COVID-19 as well as other illnesses.

We are offering some telehealth visits that we feel would benefit some of our patients. We will contact you if we feel this is an option for you.

We recommend you call us with any cold symptoms prior to going to an ER or urgent care so we can properly advise you on the next steps for your care.

We have taken precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our office and to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Below are some tips from the CDC to keep in mind to minimize stress and anxiety during this time:

  • Turn off the TV: Avoid excessive exposure to media coverage of COVID-19.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep.
  • Make time to unwind and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories. It can be upsetting to hear about the crisis and see images repeatedly. Try to do some other activities you enjoy to return to your normal life.
  • Virtually connect with others. Share your concerns and how you are feeling with a friend or family member. Maintain healthy relationships.
  • Maintain a sense of hope and positive thinking.
