COVID-19

Important Update

Attention

In order to help prevent the spread and enforce social distancing, VMAC will be converting to 100% telemedicine (visit by telephone) until further notice.

We have been contacting all scheduled patients. If we haven’t called you or if you are attempting to walk-in, please call (956)631-5411 so that we can put you on the telemedicine schedule.

At Valley Medical Arts Clinic, the health of our patients and community is very important to us. Please take a moment to review the following information which will outline the things we are asking our patients to do and the thing we are doing to help stop the spread of infectious disease. Please share with your family and friends.

What You Can Do

Wash Hands Frequently

Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap. Rub all over the front and back of your hands, under your nails and up to your wrist. Spend at least 20-30 seconds washing your hands.

Sanitize

When you don’t have access to a sink, use hand sanitizer. However, do not substitute hand sanitizer for frequent hand washing. As soon as you can get to a sink, wash your hands as above.

Cover Your Coughs

Cover your coughs and sneezes using the crook of your elbow or upper sleeve; not your hands. If you use tissue or a handkerchief, immediately dispose of the tissue and wash your hands right after.

Social Distancing

Practice “social distancing:” During times when any infectious disease is spreading: Avoid large crowds, try to shop during off times, sit and stand further away from other people.

Masks Usage Rules

Do not use a mask if you are not sick. A regular surgical mask will not protect you very well. If you are sick, coughing and sneezing OR if you are immuno-compromised and have an urgent need to leave your home -that’s when you should wear a mask. The mask should be tight and cover your mouth and nose. The mask will help prevent respiratory droplets from spreading very far.

Stay Home

If you can, we recommend you stay at home as that’s the best way to stop the spread of infection. We will update this guidance as needed.

What We Are Doing

We are taking care of our initial encounters with patients through the use of telemedicine and we have closed our clinic to normal walk-in traffic.

Only patients that have been screened for respiratory illness will be directed to come to the clinic if the treating clinician determines an urgent need to do so.

We are prioritizing our immunocompromised, elderly and actively ill patients in order to keep vulnerable patients safe.

We are sanitizing each exam room after every visit.

Our staff is practicing good hand washing skills.

We are sanitizing public areas more frequently

We are keeping ourselves informed of any developments and following the recommendations of the Federal, State and Local Health authorities

We are working to reopen our lab and X-ray department because we realize the importance of these services to the care of our patients. Before we do so, we will implement safety protocols to ensure the protection of our patients and staff. We will let you know as soon as we do.
