We Are Here for You

Northeast Medical Group, a part of Yale New Haven Health, is recognized for advanced clinical care. We are also committed to keeping you safe and comfortable when you come to us for care.

We are currently scheduling appointments, surgeries and procedures. Contact your healthcare provider if you postponed an appointment due to COVID-19.

Comfort and Safety Measures

We have increased efforts to keep our patients, visitors and healthcare professionals safe. Learn more about how we are adding additional screenings, testing, social distancing and cleaning across our facilities.

Phone Screening

You can expect a phone screening 48 hours before your appointment. A staff member will briefly review some important questions and explain what to expect upon arrival.

Telehealth 

Digital Check-In

We encourage you to use the “electronic check-in process” on MyChart before your arrival to reduce in-person interactions. Instructions are available from MyChart’s login screen or through the MyChart app.

Visitor Restrictions

At this time, no visitor(s) are allowed to accompany you to your scheduled appointment except for patients who need caregiver assistance, but that guest will need to be screened as well upon arrival.

PPE 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

When you arrive at the office, please ensure that you are wearing a mask (cloth masks are acceptable). If not, one will be provided to you. Staff and clinicians will also wear masks during all encounters with patients.

Patient Care 

Temperature Checks

You will be stopped at the entrance for pre-screening by a staff member. At that time, your temperature will be taken and you will be asked questions about any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

Appointment Frequency

Appointment frequency is being limited. We are spacing out appointments to lessen the potential for crowding, and extending office hours to ensure our ability to clean rooms and promote physical distancing.

PPE 

Disinfection and Cleaning

Enhanced infection control standards are in place. That includes a thorough disinfection of exam rooms between each patient.

Social Distancing 

Social Distancing

We are following a number of new protocols to ensure social distancing. Waiting rooms have plexiglass screens and we have reduced the number of staff at any one site.

Preparing For Your Visit

You will be screened before entry into a Northeast Medical Group office. Please be sure to wear a mask to your appointment. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you.

To help minimize the amount of time spent in the waiting room and reception area, we are encouraging the use of MyChart to conduct pre-visit registration, collect copays and access your After Visit Summary. If you do not already have a MyChart account, learn more about how to get started.

Surgeries and Procedures

If you have a scheduled procedure, our teams will walk you through new, easy processes for pre-testing, arrival and discharge. These include using mobile device check-in and reduced on-site paperwork. You may be asked to have a COVID-19 test prior to your procedure. Please follow the link below for more information on obtaining a test.
