HOUMA- Cardiovascular Institute of the South clinics are open and operating during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CIS physicians and staff are fully equipped to provide comprehensive cardiovascular care and are taking all appointments including regularly-scheduled visits, follow-ups, diagnostics tests, bloodwork and more.
The safety of patients is of utmost priority, and CIS is taking all necessary measures to protect the health of its patients. Those coming in to a CIS clinic will be screened before entering. Patients are asked to call the clinic before coming to an appointment if they are experiencing respiratory or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) or have been in close contact with someone who has these symptoms.
The CIS Virtual Care Center offers 24/7 cardiovascular care for CIS patients using telemedicine and virtual visits via phone and video calls. CIS medical providers are available around the clock to answer patient questions and handle patient concerns. These team members are specially-trained to provide the highest-quality care remotely—so that patients can receive the care they need, when they need it.
