Important Information on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
UPDATED March 21, 2020
As of Friday, March 20, Premier Medical Group staff began front door screenings for everyone entering our clinics. After answering a few questions and symptom evaluation, patients are directed to their next destination – a well patient waiting room, a sick patient waiting room, or back to their vehicles if COVID-19 testing is deemed necessary. Sample collection will be done curbside.
Sample collection for COVID-19 is done only for those who meet the criteria recommended by the CDC.
Patients experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath should NOT GO TO THE CLINIC, but contact their doctor first at 931-245-7000, or patient portal or click here for instructions.
For patients who do come to the clinic, please do not bring nonessential visitors with you.
For those patients who are told to self-isolate, learn how to care for yourself here.
As always, if you think you are experiencing a life-threatening event, call 911 immediately.
