Due to the pandemic (& I am very high risk), Dr. Lofthus conducted My appointment via video conference. This was extremely helpful to me in eliminating all risk of exposure to Covid-19. It was important that I meet w Dr. Lofthus, not only for medication management, but also, as I was recently in hospital, that I have a followup check. Dr. Lofthus' staff were very helpful in setting my video appointment up, and ensuring I had all information in how to conduct it. Thank you!
