Granite Peaks – Serving Patients with Precautions In Place

Mar

Granite Peaks GI is committed to serving our patients and keeping them safe during the COVID-19 situation. In accordance with the CDC and Utah State mandates, we are not providing “elective” procedures at this time. However, we are still treating patients who need immediate evaluation and treatment. To help with this, we have instituted a telehealth program that allows eligible patients to stay at home and talk to their doctor via computer or phone application. Patients whose condition requires in-office treatment will be screened prior to entering the building as outlined below. Granite Peaks is providing options for patients to safely receive treatment for their digestive health issues and illnesses.

Please contact our office with questions at 801-619-9000.

To protect our patients and our staff, please note:

  • All patients will be pre-screened before entering our facilities. If found to exhibit symptoms, you will be asked to exit our facility and contact the Utah COVID-19 Hotline for testing options. Granite Peaks does not have coronavirus tests.
  • Staff members are available by phone to answer questions for patients who cannot be seen.
  • Our staff members are screened each day and wear protective apparel to help provide a safe environment for patients and staff.

We ask all patients to follow the CDCs directive to avoid risk of infection. For our patients with chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation has recommendations for staying healthy and managing your condition during this unusual time. Be sure to review their suggestions and contact your Granite Peaks GI provider with any questions or concerns about your specific condition or medication needs.

To our patients, and everyone around them, stay informed, stay safe and stay well.
