Aventa Specialized Women’s Care Responds to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We are prepared to care for you.
Out of an abundance of caution in response to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, DO NOT COME INTO THE PRACTICE.
UPDATES: We understand you are getting a lot of information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) from many sources and agencies. We will continue to update you through our social media pages and website with the most current information about our practice with any changes in procedures that we may have to keep our families and team healthy.
Telemedicine Appointments: Appointments include but are not limited to:
-Birth Control consult or refill
– Medication refills (thyroid, depression, anxiety, etc.)
– Hormone consultations
– Fertility consultations
– Lab reviews
– Preconception counseling
– Urinary tract infections
– STI screening
Covered by BC/BS of Alabama, or call your insurance to ensure they cover telemedicine. Your normal copay will typically apply. If they do not cover telemedicine, the appointment will be $75.
Schedule an appointment today at 334-699-2229 to request an appointment.
Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive a text to complete or update your chart and check-in.
Additionally: Our Flowers Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Department met yesterday to discuss moving forward. We agreed unanimously to adhere to the recommendations of the American College of Surgeons and the Surgeon General. Our last day of scheduled elective cases was Friday, March 20. We will continue to be ready to provide care for emergencies and urgent cases.
KEEPING YOU SAFE: We are reviewing recommendations daily and remaining up to date on the things that affect our patients. We want to be a resource to you for questions, so call, and we can answer.
We believe it is our responsibility to do our very best to provide you excellent care in the safest environment possible—at all times, but especially now. Things seem uncertain, and we know some people wonder if we are overreacting or panicking. We believe the following (that I read somewhere else!):
I imagine all the closures and cancellations give people a sense of ominousness. But it’s really an amazing act of social solidarity. We’re sacrificing so we can give nurses, doctors, and hospitals a fighting chance.
Thank you for your cooperation and trust.
