Clinic Visits

IBD testing and visits

In order to reduce spread of COVID-19, if your IBD is in remission and you are feeling well, delay any in-person visits to your doctor. Consult with your primary care physician and/or gastroenterologists to determine if they can assess you through video-telemedicine or by telephone, instead of an in-person visit.
