BIMA March Newsletter and our new Hostess Position
Updated: Apr 14
BIMA is implementing a hostess to greet and direct ALL patients as they arrive. You will be greeted by a hostess who will ask a couple of questions and then direct you to the Arrivals Kiosk to let us know you have arrived. Please make sure to stop at the hostess stand on the third floor prior to your appointment.
BIMAeClinic- Virtual Office Visits (VOV)
If you have a fever and a cough, we ask that instead of a visit you please attempt a virtual office visit https://www.bimapc.com/bima-eclinic which has been reduced for the month of March to $30 a visit.
To initiate a Virtual Office Visit (VOV) you can:
Log on to (or create) your patient portal account at http://bimaportal.com.
Select the MESSAGES option and then COMPOSE MESSAGE.
Under the PROVIDER section select Virtual Office Visit (VOV). You must use a computer to see a full listing of providers in order to select VOV.
You may then send a detailed message explaining your symptoms to the provider on call.
This provider will evaluate your symptoms and, if deemed medically appropriate, make recommendations or provide prescriptions for your condition to your pharmacy we have on file.
If you feel you need more immediate medical attention, we encourage you to call the office directly or dial 911 for any acute medical emergency.
Happy Birthday, BIMA!
