We hope that you and your loved ones are staying well and safe in the midst the COVID-19 pandemic.
At Stamford Health, we are here to help you with all of your healthcare needs, now more than ever.

Stamford Health Medical Group (SHMG) is open and caring for our patients.

While SHMG continues to offer in-person office visits, we realize that many of you would prefer to practice social distancing, which we wholeheartedly support.

With this in mind, we are pleased to also offer virtual care visits to our patients. This means you can use your computer, tablet or phone for your doctor's appointment. There are several different ways we can help you get started with telehealth:

Making a Virtual Care Appointment

  • When you call your doctor’s office to make an appointment, just let us know you'd like to use virtual care.
  • If virtual care does not work for you, we are also happy to book an appointment for a telephone (no video) visit.

In-person Appointments Available, and Safe

Stamford Health Medical Group has a robust infection prevention plan in place. This includes:

  • Screening staff each day before entering the building. Screening involves asking a series of symptom-related questions and measuring temperature.
  • Pre-screening patients before in-office appointments and appointment scheduling that minimizes patient contact in waiting rooms.
  • Disinfecting waiting rooms and common areas throughout the day, and every exam room thoroughly between patients. Staff offices are professionally cleaned each evening. 
  • Making sure masks are worn by all of our staff, and you will be asked to wear a mask to your appointment as an additional layer of protection.   

If You're a New SHMG Patient

We are also seeing new patients using telehealth, so please encourage friends and family who may be having difficulty getting care to call us.

You or your loved ones may also find a doctor and book an appointment online.

A Few Helpful Reminders

  • Remember to wear a mask when outside your home. Here are some tips on making a no-sew cloth mask.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Stay at least six feet apart from others when you need to leave your home.
