At GBMC, we continue to work towards our mission of providing the care we would want for our own loved ones. While this may look different during these unprecedented times, we are still here to provide health, healing, and hope to our community. To stay safe, we strongly recommend that all of our patients heed Maryland’s safety guidelines. Your health is our priority, so our primary care and specialty offices are offering additional care options that can be provided virtually.

We now have the ability to implement video visits with our patients, primarily through our MyChart patient portal. If you have not downloaded the MyChart app to your cell phone, tablet, or computer, we encourage you to do so. If you have any difficulty with installing MyChart, please call your primary care office and we will help you with this process. We suggest that you take this simple step and download the application now so that it is ready for you if you need it. For more information, please visit www.gbmc.org/mychart.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has been the predominant focus in healthcare, but it is important keep your normal healthcare management a priority. This is especially important for patients with diabetes and other chronic diseases. We can use the equipment available in your home to review blood sugar readings, have you check your blood pressure and weight, and review test results with you. We want you to know that we are still here to meet your healthcare needs.

In order to keep yourself and others safe, please continue to take the following measures:
  • Practice physical distancing
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a cloth face covering when around others
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, etc.) on a regular basis
If you have any questions or concerns, please call your primary care office, and we can schedule a video visit or a phone call to assist you. For more information on primary care at GBMC, please visit www.gbmc.org/mydoctor.

Now, more than ever, is the time to focus on your health and take care of yourself. Get outside and exercise, catch up on sleep, and take care of your mental health. We are encouraging patients not to come into the office if video visits are a viable option, but your care team is, and always will be, here for you during this challenging time. Feel free to reach out if you are having trouble or have any concerns about your health. We will do everything we can to serve you and keep you well.
