As an alternative to an in-person office visit, New Jersey Urology is now offering telemedicine services effective immediately. Telemedicine can be done through the comfort of your home allowing physicians to provide a “virtual” visit through a phone or computer. While our offices will remain open to treat patients in need of in-person care, telemedicine provides our patients greater access to care throughout the COVID-19 threat.

ELECTIVE SURGERY GUIDANCE
The physicians and their staff within NJU have been directed to completely follow the Executive Order of Governor Murphy deferring elective invasive procedures. Elective procedures are those that would not cause harm or pain to a patient if it was performed at a later date. NJU continues to perform all emergent or urgent procedures required by our patients in full compliance with the law. Many of our doctors and staff are risking their own personal health in dealing with urological emergencies that would otherwise have to go to NJ hospitals currently overwhelmed by the needs of the pandemic. We commend and appreciate them for all they are doing for the community.

WE ARE HERE
At New Jersey Urology, we take very seriously our obligation to stay open and care for our patients. Our ability to treat kidney stones, UTIs, cancer patients and others alleviates the burden currently placed on our hospitals and urgent care centers so that they can concentrate on dealing with the effects of the virus. To that end, we will remain open for our patients as long as we are provided the guidance to do so by the CDC and local officials.
As of right now we are continuing our normal hours and are working hard to ensure that our patients are spread out over as many hours as possible. We have new procedures in place to ensure that you will not experience a prolonged wait time in the waiting room and will be able see your provider quickly.
Amid the fluid situation we are all experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic, please call ahead to confirm the office hours. We are also requesting that all patients that have a mask to please wear it at your scheduled visit.
We are asking our patients to arrive for their appointment either alone or with no more than one individual, over the age of 18.
Additionally, you may choose to wait in the car or outside the waiting room after registering with us. To facilitate this, we will ask for your mobile number at the time of check in and call you when the doctor is ready to see you.
CLEANING OF OUR FACILITIES
- We have removed all magazines from the waiting area and are sanitizing all check-in tablets between patients (for those offices using this technology).
- We clean and disinfect each patient room before and after every patient visit.
- Door knobs, desks, counters, frequently touched areas and equipment are wiped down and disinfected repeatedly throughout the day. iPads that you use are disinfected after each patient.
