DoctorFinder allows physicians to post temporary office relocations
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Nov. 14, 2005
Doctors who have temporarily relocated their offices because their permanent offices were damaged in recent storms, or for any other reason, now can let their patients know their new location by putting up a notice on the AMA's Web-based physician search tool, DoctorFinder.
Physicians can list a temporary address and phone number. They also can include a message to patients informing them about the best times to call, when the permanent office is expected to reopen and other relevant information.
Listing temporary information will not change the address or telephone information officially on record with the AMA. More information is available online (link).
