Message from our docs: “Don’t delay getting the care you need.”

As life slowly reopens during this pandemic, many of you have uncertainties about what’s safe and what’s not, and if it’s OK to visit your doctor now.

In this video, you’ll hear from two Edward-Elmhurst Health primary care doctors, Adam Schriedel, M.D., internal medicine physician with Edward Medical Group and Joseph Kaliski, M.D., internal medicine physician with Elmhurst Clinic.

Our doctors share why it’s important to see your doctor — whether you are managing a chronic condition that needs regular attention, or if you are simply due for a routine check-up to keep you healthy and well. It’s important that you don’t delay getting the care you need.

Our doctors also talk about the consistent safety measures in place at our doctor offices, including:

  • Offices are frequently cleaned and disinfected
  • Staff wear personal protective equipment
  • Spaced out appointments and extended office hours
  • Phone screening when scheduling an appointment (patients with known or suspected COVID-19 do not have in-person appointments — we manage their care virtually)
  • Remote registration
  • Screeners outside office entrances
  • Masking upon arrival
  • Hand sanitizer at front desks
  • Social distance waiting areas and patients often wait in their car

Your Edward-Elmhurst doctor is here to be your trusted care partner during this challenging time. Our physician offices are open, we are taking every precaution to keep you safe, and it’s important that you see your doctor. Read our Safety Commitment.

In addition to in-person office visits, our doctors are ready to “see” you while you’re at home through virtual care options, including Video Visits, phone visits and E-Visits.
