We currently do not have access to any of the COVID-19 vaccines. You may check with your local county health department for updates as changes are evolving. 

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has certainly followed us into the new year.  Northland Family Care is committed to our patients’ and staffs’ care and safety.  We recognize that health care needs continue, no matter what else is going on in the world. And we are still here for you! The concern and anxiety you may feel about this virus is still very real.

If you are experiencing symptoms or have questions about exposure to the virus, we ask that you first call 816-781-4740 and speak to our trained medical staff. Our staff and providers will be available from 8:30 am until 5 pm to answer questions and assist you with scheduling an appointment, if necessary.

We continue to schedule appointments for routine care, follow-up of chronic conditions, wellness visits and physicals, new sick visits and non-urgent appointments. Even with the continued pandemic routine healthcare should not be deferred or neglected.

Telehealth Visits

To help you and your family stay safe, we continue to offer telehealth visits.   A telehealth visit, sometimes called a virtual visit, is done by using a smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera. We will send you an email with a link to click on. Once you and your provider are both online, you will see the provider’s face and they will see you. You can then discuss any health concerns you may have.

Please note:  we recommend you contact your insurance company and confirm they cover this service.

Here is a partial list of conditions that can be treated through telehealth:

  • Cold or Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Hypertension 
  • Diabetes
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Skin Conditions
  • Visit for Medication Refills
  • Therapy and Counseling
  • Depression

Call us at 816-781-4740 to schedule your telehealth visit!

Thank you for your trust and support as we continue to keep our focus on the health and safety of you and your family.

If you are concerned, or suspect you may have COVID-19, please call our office (816-781-4740) for direction. In most cases our providers will want to schedule a tele-health visit with you.  If it is determined you should be tested you will be given instructions about our drive-up testing area. 

It is important to note that COVID-19 is one of a number of viruses in the coronavirus family. Some coronaviruses cause illness as mild as the common cold, while others have caused more severe illnesses, such as SARS and MERS.

How can I protect myself from COVID-19?

It’s important with COVID-19—and any respiratory illness that may be circulating, including the flu—to follow a number of common-sense measures to reduce chances of being exposed to illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend:

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after sneezing, coughing, or blowing your nose.
  • Covering coughs or sneezes with a tissue and then throwing the tissue in the trash.
  • Wear a mask covering your nose and mouth when in public places or around others not living in the same household. 
  • Practice social distancing and stay at least 6 feet apart.  Avoid crowds.
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are ill.
  • Avoiding touching your face—including eyes, nose and mouth. Staying home when sick
  • Regularly cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
