If You Have an Upcoming Appointment at UUANJ

If you have an upcoming appointment and have concerns that you may have been exposed to the coronavirus, please call us at (609) 581-5900 or (732) 286-6644 to reschedule your appointment.

As always, the physicians and staff of UUANJ are here to help you. Considering Governor Murphy’s Executive order 107 and 109, we will do our best to help our patients “stay at home”. Our internal response team included Health and IT professionals and has developed a telemedicine option to help treat our patients.

Telehealth at UUANJ

Per the latest developments and the relaxation of geographical limitations, we are now offering Telehealth/Telemedicine visits to our patients. You can now have a virtual visit with one of our providers from the safety of your own home.

Steps we are taking at UUANJ to help combat Covid-19

We are availble to see emergency patients including cancer, active bleeding, UTI and kidney stone patients to help reduce the burden on the emergency rooms and urgent care centers.

Please note the following:

  • We are currently keeping our offices open with reduced staff to limit patient and employee exposure.
  • We are screening all patients using the latest CDC guidance.
  • Anyone accompanying the patient must wait outside or in their car.
  • We are rescheduling and spreading outpatient appointments to facilitate social distancing.
  • We are cleaning our offices using medical-grade disinfectants regularly throughout the day.
    • We clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, desks, counters, several times daily.
    • All patient exam rooms are cleaned in between patients.
    • All common areas and exam rooms have hand sanitizer.

Social Distancing

Social distancing has been proven to help reduce the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce the burden on our healthcare system.

We are working to #flattenthecurve to help reduce the spread of COVID-19
