​​​From Dr. Carew and Dr. Chesnut: 

We are committed to treating our patients in the safest way possible.  At this time, we are following the CDC's guidelines for caring for patients while maintaining a safe environment for all patients and our staff.  We are following specific protocols in the office and while performing Pulmonary Function Testing, and we are assessing acutely ill patients by Telehealth only.  To help provide a safe environment for all of our patients and staff, we are using enhanced cleaning protocols between every patient, using a HEPA filtration unit in the PFT lab, providing space to distance from other patients in the waiting room as possible, and using personal protective equipment as recommended by the CDC.

Here is what to expect when you come to our office for your appointment:

  • If you are acutely ill or have been exposed to COVID, you will be seen by your doctor via Telehealth only, so that you can receive care from your doctor without possibly exposing other patients
  • Upon arrival to our office, if you have a fever or are acutely ill, your visit will be converted to a Telehealth visit from your car or home, and you will not be seen in person
  • New patients should complete their new patient forms at home prior to the visit to reduce time in the waiting room
  • All patients will be required to wear a mask during their entire office visit except during the PFTs (pulmonary function tests)
  • To reduce the number of people in our office, we ask that no one accompany you to your visit unless you need special assistance; please discuss with our staff prior to your appointment
  • No children under 18 years old will be permitted in the office


If your visit is conducted by Telehealth, please note the following: 

We feel fortunate that Medicare and commercial insurance regulations have been changed in response to this COVID, and that we can offer Telehealth visits, where medically appropriate.  While this type of visit does not allow your doctor to examine your lungs or do a breathing test, it may be the most appropriate or safest option in some situations.  Your doctor will determine if an in-person office visit or Telehealth visit is right for your situation.  Medicare has currently approved Telehealth services for all patients, and most commercial insurance plans have also approved Telehealth services (however, normal co-pays, co-insurances and deductibles will still apply to these visits, and some plans may not cover this service at all).  If your doctor recommends a Telehealth visit instead of an in-person office visit, the visit will be scheduled like a normal appointment, and it will be conducted with live two-way audio and video via the HIPAA-compliant site  If you have a Telehealth appointment scheduled, please click here for more information:  Instructions for your Telehealth Visit.  These instructions may be printed.
