Seneca Family Practice Resumes “New” Normal Routine

We have missed you! We have felt your support, but we miss caring for you. We are looking forward to returning to a “new” normal routine at Seneca Family Practice. The health and safety of our patients and staff are our top priority therefore we are going to approach our reopening with caution. We have set new scheduling requirements for our staff that will allow for proper social distancing in our waiting room and will ensure our ability to maintain our cleaning and disinfecting procedures. 

“Right now, we are anxious to resume our normal practice, but we need to exercise caution to protect our patients and staff” said Amy Huerter, Seneca Family Practice Clinic manager. 

Beginning Monday, May 11th patients will enter through the main entrance and will be screened prior to their appointment. This includes a temperature check and answering a series of symptom related questions. After a patient has been accessed they will then proceed to their appointment in Seneca Family Practice. 

“We do still encourage our most vulnerable patients to continue stay at home if possible,” said Huerter. “This includes older adults and anyone who has a serious underlying medical condition. Telehealth services are still available so if you have a concern about coming in, please let us know.”

Seneca Family Practice will also continue the COVID-19 hotline number, if you are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or new loss of taste or smell please call our hotline at 785-336-0399.

Seneca Family Practice Launches Telehealth Visits

Seneca Family Practice (SFP) launches telehealth visits! To better serve the needs of our patients, Seneca Family Practice is pleased to announce the availability of telehealth visits with our providers. A telehealth visit is an effective strategy to safely delivery health care to people while following Kansas Department of Health and Environment recommendations which require people to practice social distancing. 

“At Seneca Family Practice, we are committed to caring for our patients and community now and always. Telehealth visits are an excellent way to deliver health care in this unprecedented situation. We are here to care for the communities we serve, and we will continue to deliver necessary care to patients in the safest and best manner we can with the tools available,” said Dr. Tony Bartkoski, Chief of Staff at Seneca Family Practice. 

Telehealth visits provide live access to an SFP medical professional via a camera-enabled tablet, smart phone or computer. Visits will be scheduled by your doctor. The provider will set a time to connect with you and “call” you at the time of your appointment. The process is simple and Medicare, Medicaid and most major insurers have announced they will cover telehealth visits the same way they would cover in-office visits. To continue reading click here.
