Telemedicine appointments only starting March 23, 2020

Dear Valued Patient,

We have been monitoring the latest recommendations from government agencies. Those recommendations include each individual sharing in the national effort to flatten the curve of this pandemic and limit its impact. We have looked at our role and have decided to suspend all in-office visits until further notice. In order to continue providing services that help you manage your health while limiting your exposure to COVID19, all visits will be in the form of a TeleVisit beginning on Monday March 23, 2020.

You will keep your current appointment date and time and we will call you at your appointment time. Televisits work best when you and the provider are able to see each other. We are able to accomplish this using the latest technology. To that end, we ask that you download the healow App from https://health.healow.com/dewcenter

Find us using our unique practice code on the healow app: JDBEBA

Use of this APP requires that you have access to our patient portal. If you currently do not have access to the portal, please call our office and we would be happy to activate this feature for you.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are still here for you for routine matters during regular business hours. Please send us a message through your patient portal or alternatively, call us at 256-881-2700.

Remember to wash and sanitize your hands frequently, avoid people who are sick and follow the guidelines regarding social distancing. For more information on COVID-19, visit www.cdc.gov.

Best Regards,

Diabetes and Endocrine Wellness Center

Federal Diabetes Exemption Forms

Beginning: January 2019

Our office will no longer complete federal government forms for diabetic patients who are treated with insulin and operate a commercial vehicle in interstate commerce.


IMPORTANT GABAPENTIN UPDATE

On May 15, 2019, the State Committee of Public Health voted to make gabapentin a scheduled V medication, effective November 18, 2019. This decision was based on its potential for abuse and the need to properly monitor how it is prescribed in Alabama.

Effective November 1, 2019, our practice will no longer prescribe gabapentin for patients. We will be happy to refer you to a neurologist to treat your neuropathic symptoms.
