Why consider telehealth?
TELEHEALTH SAVES TIME: You can meet with your provider from the privacy of your own home or car. You don’t need to find childcare or leave home for the visit.
TELEHEALTH IS EASY: When you make a telehealth appointment with us, we will email or text you a personal link to your visit. At the time of your appointment, all you have to do is click on that link to be connected.
TELEHEALTH IS SECURE: Your link is personal and unique. It only works for your appointment. When you click on it, you will be able to see and hear your provider, and he or she can see and hear you.
TELEHEALTH IS SAFE: Although nothing can replace a visit with your provider in person, during these difficult times many problems can be addressed by phone or video conference. Many afflictions like rashes, colds, headaches, and bladder infections can be managed remotely.
