How We Make Sure You Are Safe
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, our doctors and care teams are taking extra precautions to make your visit as safe as possible.
Testing and Screening
Masks and Protective Equipment
Many new and existing Johns Hopkins patients have the option to have a video appointment (telemedicine) with their provider, depending on their healthcare need. If you don't have a device to use for a video visit, you and your provider may decide that a telephone call will meet your needs.
If you are an existing patient and had an appointment that was postponed, our offices may contact you to reschedule. You can also call your doctor’s office or send a message via MyChart to discuss your healthcare needs so we can determine the appointment that is most appropriate. If you are a new patient, please call us at 443-997-6467 to schedule an in-person primary or specialty care visit.
