Columbus OB/GYN Information for Patients Regarding COVID-19

Updated April 6, 2020

We are still here for you at Columbus OB/GYN!  We are happy to announce a new way to see your provider.
Telemedicine is now available for established patients.  It is easy, private, and often covered by insurance.  Some types of visits that can likely be conducted via telemedicine include: medication questions and refills, urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal infections, bleeding problems, birth control counselling,  menopausal symptoms, anxiety/depression, infertility, sexual dysfunction, and postpartum visits without a physical concern.  Some of these visit types may require a trip to a lab following your telemedicine visit for diagnosis confirmation.
In addition to telemedicine, we are still seeing patients in the office if needed following all the guidelines to help keep you and our staff safe and healthy.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for a telemedicine visit:
*choose a location with a high-speed internet connection
*use a device with a microphone and camera and set the camera to eye level
*if using a mobile device, check your settings to ensure you’re on wi-fi
*choose a room that is private and free of noise and possible distractions
*gather any information about new medications or changes in your health history
*have available your preferred pharmacy information
*know which lab you’d like to use if needed (Ohio Health or Mt. Carmel and which location)
*take and record your weight and blood pressure if possible (please do not venture out to obtain this information) before your appointment
*write down your questions
*accept the invitation from your provider via email or text message to join your telemedicine visit
*enjoy this easy and convenient visit with your provider

Dear Patients,

During the past couple of weeks our community has seen many changes in how we live our daily lives.  We anticipate these changes will continue for the next several weeks to months.  We want you to know that we are keeping your health and safety at the center of all we do.  With that in mind, we are following the recommendations of the CDC, the Ohio Department of Health, the Governor’s COVID 19 task force, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.  These guidelines have led to the following changes that you should be aware of:
• There have been changes in our workflow.  Many of our staff are answering phone calls from home.  When you call the office you will leave a voicemail.  The staff will then return your call as quickly as possible.  Please know that this returned call may come from an unfamiliar or blocked phone number.
• Only patients are allowed into the office. Please come alone.
• All non-urgent visits including annuals and mammograms are being rescheduled.
• Up to date hospital information including visitor information can be found at www.blog.ohiohealth.com for Ohio Health and www.mountcarmelhealth.com for Mount Carmel facilities. 
We are dedicated to caring for you through this time.  We will get through this together.

Visit our website for valuable updates and links to healthcare information.  For more COVID-19 info, visit coronavirus.ohio.gov

Thank you for helping us during this unprecedented time. Together we will continue to provide you with the best care.

Angie Jenkins

I have been a patient of Dr. Simon for 28 years. He is the most caring, compassionate physician I have ever encountered. He carried me through 2 miscarriages and delivered my 2 beautiful daughters. He has always gone the extra mile. I've seen a couple other doctors in the practice also and all of them have been awesome, most recently being Dr. Hahn. Thank you to the entire organization for your care and compassion.
