AN UPDATE FROM HATTIESBURG CLINIC EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, TOMMY G. THORNTON, FACMPE
As we continue into this unconventional time, Hattiesburg Clinic wants to ensure you are receiving updated information regarding important health care services.
Hattiesburg Clinic is beginning to see more patients and offer more services, including elective surgery procedures. We recommend patients communicate with their health care team, so they understand the extra measures we are taking in the best interest of their safety. Telehealth visits will remain the priority for routine follow-up.
Our telehealth services are available for you to receive care while staying in the comfort of your home. All you need is an active Iris account. Patients are encouraged to sign in 15 minutes early for their video visit to ensure a smooth check-in process and to make sure they are ready for their video visit at the scheduled time. To learn more about Iris and telehealth services, visit www.hattiesburgclinic.com/iris or call your provider’s office. We also have a step-by-step guide on our website.
Hattiesburg Clinic is now offering an additional site for lab work and pre-operative testing services for Hattiesburg Clinic patients. The pre-operative testing site is for patients who are having a service performed at one of our outpatient surgical facilities. Pre-operative testing services include COVID-19 swabs (this is not a COVID-19 testing site), lab work, EKG, and chest x-rays.
The pre-operative testing site is located in the same building as Dermatology at #6 Medical Blvd., next to Internal Medicine, and is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Hattiesburg Clinic is no longer offering drive-thru lab services.
Patients may also continue to have their lab work done at our main clinic campus located at 415 S. 28th Ave., or at one of our satellite locations as necessary. The Hattiesburg Clinic Laboratory is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Thank you for trusting Hattiesburg Clinic with your care.
