Meet the Doctors: Infectious Disease Physician Emilio V. Perez-Jorge

Dr. Emilio V. Perez-Jorge, an infectious disease physician with Lexington Medical Specialists, moves through the hospital each day with purpose. He briskly walks the halls of Lexington Medical Center checking on patients fighting some of the most stubborn infections and diseases. Although he commonly treats patients with pneumonia, diabetic foot infections and bloodstream infections, COVID-19 has now taken center stage.

Follow along as Dr. Perez makes his rounds at the hospital and shares what he’s learned about the novel coronavirus.

Schedule an E-Visit with LMC MyChart

If you’re experiencing symptoms that you are concerned may be related to COVID-19 (or coronavirus) but are hesitant to visit the doctor, Lexington Medical Center has a new option that allows you to get screened from the comfort of your home. Patients who already have a Lexington Medical Center MyChart account can now complete a virtual screening with COVID-19 E-Visit.

After completing the COVID-19 screening questionnaire, a Lexington Medical Center provider will review your submitted answers and evaluate your illness. If the provider suspects COVID-19, he or she will determine the most appropriate next steps to ensure you get the best possible care and minimize spreading illness to others. Follow these easy steps to get started with your screening:

1. Log in to your LMC MyChart account.

2. If using MyChart app on your mobile phone, select the “E-Visit” icon.

3. If using MyChart on a desktop computer, select “Ask a Question” and select “Symptom-Specific E-Visit.”
