At the Bozeman clinic, we care about your health, safety, and overall well-being and are taking the threat of COVID-19 very seriously. Following are the steps we have implemented to keep our patients, staff, and community safe:
We are recommending that, if you are 65 years or older, that you reschedule your annual wellness visit.Our staff members will be reaching out to assist you with this process.
We are recommending that you keep your Well Child Exam with your provider so that important immunizations may be given as planned. However, if your child is ill with mild cold symptoms that do not need the attention of your provider, please reschedule.
TELE HEALTH via Audio/Visual is available. Please call our clinic to determine if your situation can be managed with a Tele Health visit.
We are performing phone screening for COVID-19 to determine if testing is appropriate. Questions you will be asked are as follows:
Do you have a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing?
Have you been in close contact with a person known to have positive COVID-19?
If yes to these questions please call the clinic to schedule a telehealth visit or determine next steps.
If no to these questions then our clinical staff will advise you about your particular health situation.
We have split the waiting room into SICK and WELL and are asking anyone with a cough to wear a mask.
As a private independent clinic located on the hospital campus, we want to do what is needed in order to comply with visitor and vendor restrictions on the Bozeman Health campus.
ONLY the patient being seen in the clinic is allowed on the hospital campus EXCEPT “Compassionate Care Visitors” such as a cancer support person, parent of a pediatric patient, memory Care support person, or end-of-life support person. In these cases, only ONE visitor is allowed to accompany the patient.
If you are an appropriate visitor as described above and are sick (fever, cough, or sore throat), please do not accompany a patient to the clinic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses, you can take simple steps to protect yourself and your family:
Stay home if you’re sick with a cold
Avoid contact with sick people when possible
Cover your cough and sneezes with the crook of your elbow or a tissue
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth and wash your hands frequently
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
Stay tuned for updated information from the CDC.
We are here for you if you have any questions or concerns. Please call the clinic at 406-587-4242 or communicate with us through your patient portal.
