In response to COVID-19 restrictions we will be offering telemedicine and e-consultation options for both established and new patients. If you are in need of a telehealth appointment contact our office at 219-769-3381 for more information if an in-person visit is not possible. We don't want patients who have health safety issues or by federal standards considered "non essential" to put off seeing a doctor and risk potential complications.
