COVID-19 Patient Care

Effective May 11, 2023, the federal COVID-19 Public Health Declaration will end. The CDC is shifting from an emergency response to incorporating COVID-19 activities into routine public health practice..

Vaccine Availability and Eligibility:

We are encouraging patients to visit coronavirus.health.ny.gov to find local vaccine sites across WNY and confirm your eligibility.

Safety Guidelines When visiting our Offices:

Patients, Visitors and Staff with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should remain home; and contact your primary care provider for medical advice and treatment options.   Most tools, like vaccines, treatments, and testing, will remain available.  It is recommended that you check with your health insurance to see if there are any limitations to testing facilities or treatment options.

Face Masks are optional for non-symptomatic patients, staff, and visitors to our facilities.

Virtual care (telemedicine) options:

Video Visit: If you are unable to come into our offices, based on your appointment type, you may be able to convert your appointment to a video visit, available through MyBMGChart. Call your provider’s office to determine if this would be an option for you. Read our Video Visit FAQs here.

MyBMGChart E-Visit: If you are unable to come into our office for any reason, based on your appointment, you may be able to convert it to an E-Visit through MyBMGChart, our patient portal. Watch a tutorial video here to see how E-Visits work.
