Since my treatment with TEPEZZA, I can read to my children, I can drive to work without double vision. I have my pep in my step back. My camera is full of selfies. I can’t wait to tell everyone about TEPEZZA and what it has done for me.”

Visiting your doctor during the COVID-19 pandemic

Protecting your overall health is an important part of your TED treatment journey. Here are some tips for getting the care you need while following appropriate safety steps.

Before your visit
  • For in-person visits, call the office or check the website to learn what COVID-19 pandemic safety steps they follow. These may include things such as: requiring a mask, asking screening questions about COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, taking your temperature at check-in, and requiring social distancing in the waiting room
  • If you are planning a follow-up visit, ask the doctor if a telemedicine/telehealth (an online video visit) or a phone consult is possible
  • Call the office to ask about bringing a loved one or caregiver with you. Some clinics may limit the number of people who can accompany patients during the pandemic
  • Find out if electronic billing is offered. This can help you avoid handling pens, paper, credit cards, and other objects during checkout that can carry germs
  • The staff may call you shortly before your appointment to ask if you have any potential COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever or trouble breathing. If you are having symptoms, they may want you to follow additional safety steps
During and after your visit
  • While at your appointment, stay at least 6 feet away from other patients and staff unless you are being examined
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Try to avoid frequently touched surfaces, such as touchscreens, countertops, and doorknobs. If you can’t, use gloves or a tissue to touch them and wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer before and after touching any surfaces in public areas
  • When your appointment is over, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol
  • If you have prescriptions other than TEPEZZA, plan ahead to fill those. Ask your insurance company if delivery by mail is available. If you have multiple prescriptions, try to fill them all at once to limit visits to the pharmacy
