New Yorkers are known for their resilience during times of crisis. As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to create uncertainty among New Yorkers, AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY) is safely providing care for more than half a million patients in New York City, including through BronxDocs, an affiliate of ACPNY. We're committed to ensuring every ACPNY patient has access to multiple digital health services, including virtual visits and prescription drug delivery.
By following social distancing practices and staying home, New Yorkers are doing their part to help reduce exposure and the spread of COVID-19. While this is important, it is also vital to stay in touch with your primary and specialty care providers and continue taking care of your health. You can easily schedule a virtual visit for certain types of appointments as an alternative to in-office care.
If you or a loved one speak a language other than English, you can visit with one of our providers who speak multiple languages.
Right now, 400 of our doctors and providers are ready to treat you where you are—by computer, phone or tablet. Virtual visits can address many of your health issues and concerns, whether you have symptoms related to COVID-19, need support for stress or anxiety, or ran out of refills for a prescription. For patients with chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, it is even more critical to maintain a relationship with your primary care provider, as individuals with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of reacting severely to COVID-19. While you may think a health concern is minor and can wait, scheduling a virtual visit can give you peace of mind and help prevent future health issues by addressing them today.
If you are an essential worker and working unusual hours, our providers take thousands of appointments each day and can work to accommodate schedules. To further reduce your exposure to COVID-19, ACPNY patients can also have prescriptions delivered to the front door, thanks to a recent partnership with Medly Pharmacy. As the world continues to respond to COVID-19 and adjust to new daily life, our team is here to provide you with the health care services you need—safely.
Your health should remain a priority, especially during this challenging time.
