COVID-19 Preparedness and Response

Due to the rapidly changing coronavirus COVID-19 situation, please review this information before visiting any Lifespan facility or outpatient practice for an appointment or procedure. 

We recognize that this is a time of many questions and concerns. Our Women’s Medicine care team is here to support you. Anyone experiencing a fever, respiratory symptoms, GI symptoms, or a change in ability to taste or smell should NOT come unannounced to a doctor’s office. We ask that you contact us first. 

We are following the most up-to-date safety and infection control recommendations set forth by the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Learn more about the steps we are taking to provide a safe environment »

For your safety and the safety of others, all patients will be asked screening questions prior to any visit and when you enter any Lifespan facility. Thank you for answering these questions accurately so we can ensure that you receive care at the appropriate time and setting. All patients are required to wear a face mask at all times during their visit and we ask that you use hand sanitizer prior to checking-in.  

We are asking our patients not to postpone their medical care. We continue to offer telemedicine video visits. These visits are private and secure. Please contact us to ask if a telemedicine appointment is appropriate for your clinical needs. Learn more about Lifespan Telehealth »
