While we all navigate through the COVID-19 crisis, Mayfield providers are seeing patients through telehealth (video) appointments, telephone appointments, and even office visits for the most urgent/emergent cases. Our specialists are rounding at the hospitals and doing everything they can do to help those patients who need us.
