To our valued patients,
The Paparella Ear Head & Neck Institute is working to ensure the safety of all of our patients and employees regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Currently, we are seeing only URGENT patients. Please call us at 612-339-2836 to help determine the urgency of your need. For non-essential visits, we are scheduling Telehealth phone visits, and in the future Telehealth video visits. Medicare is currently approving this appointment option. If you have a different insurance plan, please check with your insurance provider to determine if Telehealth is a covered benefit.
For patients keeping urgent appointments, we are taking additional precautions in our clinic to ensure your safety. When you come into your appointment, bring only ONE (1) significant other and no children unless your child is the patient or if a language interpreter is necessary.
Patients will not be scheduled if they have:
- Cold or flu-like symptoms (including a fever greater than 100.4, cough, difficulty breathing, body aches, and fatigue) in the past two weeks.
- Recent contact with somebody who has been diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19.
- Traveled within or to countries that have widespread, ongoing transmission in the past as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Please reach out to us at 612-339-2836 if you have any other questions or concerns about your care and appointment needs.
Further information can be found on the Minnesota Department of Health website.
Wishing you continued health,
Physicians, audiologists and staff
