Information for Virtual Patient Care
In these unprecedented times of Covid-19 we hope that you are in good health and doing all that you can to maintain your health and safety. At Weight Loss North we have taken all precautions to ensure that our patients, their families as well as our staff all remain healthy and safe. All of our staff remain healthy and we have no cases of Covid-19 among or patients, staff or their families.
As you are aware, the government has temporarily regulated that all non-emergent patient care be postponed.
Our current and new patients have requested “virtual consultations” to discuss their weight loss and Optifast questions and become properly educated about their options. While we are disappointed the current restrictions will not allow us to meet in person, we understand patient’s desire for timely accurate information and the desire to plan for a procedure around their schedule and when government regulations permit.
Our office will arrange for a virtual consultation through your computer. We will send you a “Zoom” invite for a mutually agreed date and time. Dr. Barr will connect with you through Zoom and complete all aspects of our usual consultation except for the physical examination. By using screen share he will ensure you understand all your options and fully explain his plan for you to reach your goals. If you do not want to use your video feed, it is not required. Audio can be done through your computer or on the phone. Prior to the virtual consultation, Keri or Carin will contact you to start the consultation process. They will obtain important medical information including your past medical history, previous operations, medications, allergies etc. This would normally be done, in person, at our office, for all consultations.
With Covid-19, we have implemented additional measures to ensure the safety and health of our patients, their families and our staff.
We hope by having the consultation virtually, while in your own home, it will be more relaxed. In addition, please have a family member or close friend sit in with you during your virtual consultation if you would like.
Sincerely, Weight Loss North
