Update for One Family Medicine Fall 2020

As fall approaches there are a few changes occurring within OFM. As of the end of September Dr Kathleen will be mostly providing non-urgent email consults to current patients while she is out of the office.  Tele-Visits  and phone visits ARE an option and made by special arrangement due to Dr Kathleen’s intermittent availability.  Dr Kathleen will resume normal practice hours after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Please email or call with questions or concerns. See below for specific details.
Email Consults: $75 – these are for CURRENT PATIENTS only to address on-going health issues and plans, or simple new health issues that arise. No urgent issues.  Please email Dr Kathleen directly with concerns and a response will be provided within 72 hours ( goal of 24-72 hours- possible that it may take longer).These are being offered to continue your direct care contact with Dr Kathleen that you have come to love and expect. Ideal for check-in’s on current treatment plan, lab orders/results, medication check ins and refills, simple acute support ( colds, stomach bug, UTI etc – please note if more urgent care needed, please use local urgent care. ) If an email consultation is NOT appropriate, I will work to get a Tele-Visit set up with you.  *Please note that insurance cannot be billed for these consults
Tele-Visits and Phone Calls: Open to NEW and CURRENT patients of OFM. Patients will be required to schedule with Dr Kathleen on an as needed basis.These visits will be offered only once weekly or less so please utilize the email consults if able to allow for your needs to be met more quickly.   Insurance may be able to be used for these visits ( subject to specific plan coverage). Cash discounts available as well.

Please feel free to email or call with questions or concerns.

PLEASE NOTE OUR COvid-19 POLICY

**IMPORTANT** Due to the current outbreak of COvid-19 ALL visits will be conducted via Doxy.me- a HIPAA compliant platform. You will need access to a computer or phone with internet access during your appointment. Within 24 hours of your visit you will be emailed a link to the Doxy meeting. Please follow directions for logging in on that email.

TeleMedicine Questions

‘Will my insurance cover this?‘- Insurance will be billed as normal but there is a chance that it may vary. As of now almost all insurances are covering telemedicine visits. A few (American Specialty Health, HealthNet and Cigna)  are unknown at this time but will be billed regardless. It is assumed that they will follow other companies and cover services of telemedicine at this time of crisis.

‘I think I need an exam’– If you have an issue that may need an exam  and do not have symptoms of COvid-19, please contact the office directly via phone or email. We will have in office appointments on a case by case basis.

-Telemedicine visits will run 15-45 minutes long. We can continue moving forward in your treatment and health plan by addressing on-going care, recent labs, etc. New patients can also establish care with a telemedicine visit.

Our mission at One Family Medicine is to provide the most comprehensive healthcare available. Our practice utilizes the most cutting edge medical science together with time-tested natural therapies. In providing true integrated care, we spend time learning about your life, your body and your concerns. Our patients come to us with specific concerns knowing that our care will be comprehensive and thorough. Our approach is rooted in Functional Medicine. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

Our vision is to help you and those around you achieve a state of vitality that will allow you to live life to its fullest. We are dedicated to contributing to the change in the healthcare model by treating the root cause of disease while fostering balance and health in our own families, our local community and our whole planet.

We offer a convenient location in Oregon-  as well as offer phone consultations/appointments for those outside our area. Our office  location is in beautiful Hood River.  Please see link to easy online scheduling below
