Appointment and Procedure Updates

We are updating some appointment and procedure practices to help lessen the spread of the new coronavirus and COVID-19.

In some cases, appointments or procedures may need to be rescheduled. If there are changes to your care, your provider will contact you.

Scheduling Your Telemedicine Appointment

Many new and existing Johns Hopkins patients may now have the option to have a video appointment (telemedicine) with their provider, depending on their healthcare need. If you do not have a device to use for a video visit, you and your provider may decide that a telephone call will meet your needs. Learn more about video visits.
