Is the Clarksburg Medical Group open? Yes! Over the past year we have remained open for patient inquiries and appointments. We have worked hard to continue to provide the same standard of care and availability for our patients - even during the peak of the pandemic. Our hours have not changed!
How do I book an appointment with my doctor? Appointments are still being offered to patients by same day access. Please call the office between 8:30-1:00 on a day your doctor is in the office for a full day, and from 8:30-10:00 when your office is in the office for a half day. We are available for urgent and routine care at this time.
Will I come into the office for my visit? Over the past few months doctors, just like all health care providers, have been limiting what care they provide in-person to help limit the spread of the virus. With that being said, we are still able to manage most of our patients health care needs in an alternative way. When you call to book your same day appointment, reception will determine if the appointment would be better via virtual care or over the telephone.away.
What if my health concern can’t be solved remotely? Every patient must begin with a virtual appointment or telephone call with our doctors. The doctors are able to accommodate some in office visits, however it is up to them to determine who qualifies for this and what precautions must be taken. Please note, per CPSO guidelines we are not currently accepting patients in office for Periodic Health Exams, routine PAP tests or elective vaccines.
What happens if I missed a telephone appointment with my doctor? If you are booked in for a telephone call with your doctor, please note that these are treated the same way as in clinic appointments. We ask that you please be available and ready to talk with your doctor at your scheduled time. If the doctor calls and does not get through, it is treated as a missed appointment and you will be required to call back on your own a different day. Please note, the doctors may come up as an “unknown caller” for their privacy.
Can I still access the Office Nurse during COVID 19? We are no longer able to accommodate walk-in visits with our nurse as many of the nurses duties have been suspended during the pandemic. If you normally see the nurse without an appointment, please contact our office for more information.
What if my child is due for a well child exam and vaccine? The doctors are still seeing children at their regular scheduled intervals. If you child is due for a routine well child exam or a catch up vaccine, please contact reception.
