What can you do to prevent getting sick?

Please visit the Centers for Disease Control's website about COVID-19 here for more information on prevention measures.

Telemedicine

Our doctors are now seeing patients via telemedicine visits! All you need is a smartphone and internet. Our physicians can provide you with the same experience as an in-office visit without exposure to you or our staff. Our new telemedicine option is our way of continuing to help our patients in the community with the social distancing requirements.

Procedures and COVID-19

In accordance with Governor Kate Brown’s lifting of restrictions in Oregon of elective procedures, Eugene Gastroenterology is proud to announce we will be resuming upper endoscopies and colonoscopies at Oregon Endoscopy Center. All patients will be screened for COVID-19 prior to their procedure.
