COVID-19: Lehigh Valley Physician Group increases ‘virtual’ health-care

Thursday, April 9, 2020 by The Press in Focus

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG) is increasing “virtual” health-care visits by phone, E-Visits and LVHN Video Visits accessed through the www.MyLVHN patient portal.

This is intended to allow LVPG health-care providers to prevent the spread of infection. If a patient and health-care team decide the patient’s need is best met with a face-to-face visit, one will be scheduled.

Some physicians will see patients at other LVPG locations during COVID-19 restrictions. Some practices have relocated. As of April 6, additional practices will be relocating. Information: www.LVHN.org/relocations.

Information about LVPG providers, practice telephone numbers and locations: www.LVHN.org/findadoctor.

When COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and LVPG providers and practices can resume scheduling traditional face-to-face appointments, patients will be notified.

For questions about an upcoming appointment or help with scheduling a virtual or in-person visit, patients are asked to call their LVPG health care provider’s office or 888-402-LVHN (5846).

LVHN ExpressCARE can provide treatment of minor illnesses and injuries without an appointment. Information: www.LVHN.org/ExpressCARE.
