Local Urology Practice Rapidly Moves to Virtual Platform to Provide Telehealth Option for Patients

26 Mar 2020

(St. Louis – March 26, 2020) Less than a month ago, Urology of St. Louis (USL) was seeing more than 2,500 patients a week at its fifteen locations throughout the Metro East and St. Louis. As COVID-19 has quickly brought many face-to-face interactions to a dramatic halt, USL has rapidly adopted a virtual platform which allows all thirty of its physicians to see patients virtually and treat a variety of conditions.

“We’re able to assess developing symptoms and triage patients quickly and effectively to keep them out of the emergency room most of the time,” said Urology of St. Louis Medical Director, David Bryan, M.D. “We’re also able to check in with our older patients and patients with cancer from the safety of their own homes.”
