Social distancing at IPN offices

Iredell Internal Medicine is welcoming patients to a new normal, implementing enhanced safety protocols that offer patients the same quality of care they have grown to expect from all Iredell Physician Network offices while also providing peace of mind.

With continued diligence in cleaning practices, Iredell Internal Medicine has new procedures and practices that will keep patients and staff safe as in-person visits increase.

Masks are required at our facility for patients, visitors and staff. If you are medically unable to wear a mask, you are encouraged to call our office prior to your scheduled time to let us know so we can assist you in adapting your appointment to a telehealth or car-side visit.
