Coronavirus (COVID-19) update and telemedicine appointments

As coronavirus continues to spread in NJ, we want to update you on the actions the New Jersey Bariatric Center is taking to protect our patient’s health.

As a reminder, if you are concerned that you or someone you know has symptoms associated with the coronavirus, please contact your medical doctor who can address your concerns or the NJ Department of Health Coronavirus hotline at 1-800-222-1222.  If you do not have a medical doctor, please call us and we will help direct you to an internal medicine professional who can address your concerns.

At New Jersey Bariatric Center we are staying updated on all information about the coronavirus from the NJ Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and are following all appropriate infection control procedures. Due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 and the stay-at-home order, in-office appointments have been temporarily stopped and telemedicine services are now available for new and current patients. Telemedicine appointments provide a platform for patients to stay connected with our team of doctors to receive the care they need. 

For more information on telemedicine appointments, click here or call our office at 908-481-1270.
