CIGC Launches Telemedicine, Helping Patients with GYN Conditions Receive the Care They Need Amid Coronavirus Concerns
If you suffer from a complex GYN condition such as endometriosis, fibroids, or adenomyosis, you know that symptoms don’t just resolve themselves despite bad timing. In the face of the growing Coronavirus pandemic, CIGC is determined to be there for patients who are seeking relief from symptoms such as severe pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding.
With that goal in mind, CIGC has launched a HIPAA-compliant telemedicine tool known as Updox. Patients can now have an appointment with a CIGC specialist from the comfort of home during this time of sheltering-in-place. This video conferencing service is easy to use: patients receive a text message with a hyperlink and simply click on the link to start their virtual appointment. When booking a consultation, patients can request that their appointment be conducted via telemedicine and the CIGC staff will take care of the rest.
CIGC is still offering in-person appointments. Our practice locations are regularly disinfected, and we have hand sanitizer available for visitors. In addition to these cleanliness measures, we are asking patients to bring only one support person with them to their visit.

CIGC is dedicated to providing information and materials for women to help navigate the complicated healthcare system. The CIGC founders, minimally invasive GYN surgical specialists Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD, developed their advanced GYN surgical techniques using only two small incisions with patients’ well-being in mind.
Their personalized approach to care helps patients understand their condition and the recommended treatment so that they can have confidence from the very start. Our surgeons have performed over 20,000 GYN procedures and are constantly finding better ways to improve outcomes for patients.
