DETROIT (PRWEB) April 08, 2020
Endometriosis is a painful and debilitating condition that causes pelvic pain, painful menstruation, and even painful intercourse for women. Women suffering from this disease or symptoms of pelvic pain may find themselves at a standstill to getting proper care during the coronavirus outbreak. Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, President of Women’s Excellence and his team are committed to helping new and existing patients with endometriosis and pelvic pain during this time when many doctor's offices have closed.
Endometriosis is a disease that affects the female reproductive tract in which the endometrial lining of the uterus spreads into the pelvic cavity, implanting itself on the pelvic structures causing inflammation and pain. The most common symptoms of endometriosis include painful intercourse, painful periods, pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, infertility, back pain, and even gastrointestinal problems.
“If your symptoms of endometriosis and pelvic pain are getting worse while on quarantine, you can still get the care you need!” says Dr. Zaidan. “Our offices remain open to help you! We are offering virtual appointments for initial consultations and follow-up visits and in-office appointments for testing and treatment protocols.”
The virtual care program at Women’s Excellence, called Specialty Virtual Care, is a proprietary system that allows women to meet with their provider through a HIPAA-secured video conference call. In addition to endometriosis visits, patients can utilize virtual care for other gynecologic concerns, lab result questions and follow up, imaging results, initial consultations for other specialty services, menopause concerns, weight program consultations, and more.
In order to schedule a Specialty Virtual Care appointment, patients will need access to a computer or mobile device with video and microphone capabilities. Although many visits can be done solely through Specialty Virtual Care, some visits will require in office visits for blood draws and imaging with options for patient convenience.

“During the coronavirus pandemic, the health and safety of our patients is very important to us. Our goal is to ensure that women’s health remains a priority and our patients (even new patients!) get the care they need. Along with our proprietary virtual care program, we’ve instituted protocols within our offices including a no visitor policy, screening protocols for coronavirus symptoms, and enhanced cleaning processes to help decrease exposure and the spread of COVID-19,” says Dr. Zaidan.
