Chestnut Family Health Center continues to care for patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. To comply with social distancing recommendations, we are offering some appointments by telephone or video. Our in-house Genoa Pharmacy is offering curbside pick-up and mail order delivery. For patients who are seen in the office, we are doing extra cleaning and have a number of precautions in place to protect your health and ours. During the outbreak, we are following these guidelines:

  • If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or have been near someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not come to our office even if you have an appointment. Please call our office for an over-the-phone evaluation by our staff.
  • If you have concerns about coming to our office for a scheduled appointment, please call our office at least one day before your appointment to talk with staff.
