HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Hannibal Regional Medical Group is now offering telehealth visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Telehealth visits will allow patients to virtually connect with a Hannibal Regional provider instead of an in-person office visit.

"For patients looking for an alternative to an in-person office visit during this time of recommended social distancing, telehealth visits are a great option," said Dr. Pranav Parikh, Hannibal Regional chief medical officer. "Our goal is to help our community follow the CDC recommendations for protecting themselves from COVID-19 while doing everything we can to keep them well."

A telehealth visit can be scheduled for any reason, not just a COVID-19 related illness. Contact your provider's office if you are not sure your concern can be resolved through a telehealth visit. Call 800-845-7407 to schedule a telehealth visit or ask questions.

If patients are not experiencing flu-like symptoms and plan to be seen in person, Hannibal Regional Medical Group has implemented a screening process and visitor restrictions. Patients will be routed through the fever/virus entrance, if necessary. For additional information about COVID-19, go to hannibalregional.org/coronavirus.
