COVID-19 UPDATE

The health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our families is of primary importance to us. We are closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and following all recommendations by the Oregon Health Authority.

We’re open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. If we’re not immediately available by phone, leave a message and we’ll call you back.

We’re now seeing pre-operative patients in the clinic for examinations prior to surgery. For in-office appointments, please plan for the following upon your arrival:

  • Call our main line and check in from the parking lot where our team will ask you a few screening questions and you’ll be reminded to wear a mask.
  • A staff member will call you back and let you know when it’s time to enter the building.
  • Everyone is required to wear a mask and sanitize their hands upon entry, and your temperature will be checked.
  • Once cleared following the screening, you will enter your patient room for your examination.

For new patients and to discuss any symptoms of physical conditions, we’re offering secure online video visits (Tele-Visits) which enables Dr. Mastrangelo to visit with you in a safe environment.

We’re also offering telephone visits without the video component if access to a computer or internet is a barrier for any of our patients.

Contact our office at 541-383-2200 and we’ll help you determine if a Tele-Visit is the right fit for you.

Most all insurance companies are covering tele-health options for their insured patients. If you are unsure if your insurance company will cover tele-health appointments, please reach out to them to verify coverage or contact our office.

As always, feel free to contact our office with any questions or concerns at 541-383-2200
