What Is A Telehealth Visit?
A telehealth visit is an appointment with your provider that is conducted by phone or a video conferencing platform.
Telehealth options have existed for some time for added convenience, but are now a great option as we all seek to protect our community from COVID-19 (the coronavirus).
Telehealth Visits are an effective option for care for:
- Follow-up telephone call.
- Review of diagnostic imaging or lab results
- Care consultations
How Can You Schedule A Telehealth Visit?
To schedule a telehealth visit, request an appointment as you normally would by using our Patient Portal or calling our office.
Our scheduling staff will work with you to determine the best telehealth option for your appointment.
