COVID-19 Update

The physicians and staff of Old Greenwich Medical Group want to express appreciation to our patients for the personal sacrifices you have all been making in the interest of the health of our community during the current pandemic. Thank you for doing everything possible to minimize the spread of infection in our area.

 

Our Old Greenwich office remains open, and our receptionists continue to answer calls on weekdays from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Our 24-hour answering system will assist you with any urgent situations that arise at nights or on weekends.

 

We encourage virtual telemedicine appointments for any issues that can be managed without a face-to-face visit. Traditional in-person appointments are also available with our physicians, for all matters best managed in that fashion.

Important Guidelines

Plasma Donation Information

Greenwich Hospital is conducting a study to use convalescent plasma in sick patients with Covid.   The plasma is obtained by collecting plasma from someone who has already recovered from Covid-19. 

If the patient had testing for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at Greenwich Hospital, the patient can call 203-863-4141 to be screened and registered by Greenwich Hospital on the NYBC web site.

 

If a patient has recovered from COVID-19 and did not get tested at Greenwich Hospital but wants to be a donor, the patient can get additional information at

  •   DO call in advance to schedule appointments for all telemedicine visits and in-person visits.

  •   DO call in advance to schedule appointments for all immunizations, injections, and blood tests.

  •   DO arrive for in-person visits by yourself and as close to the scheduled time as possible.
