FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are TeleHealth appointments for new and existing patients?
TeleHealth appointments are for Existing Patients only. Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot accept new patients via telehealth or virtual visits.
What kinds of appointments can be conducted through video?
During a virtual appointment, we can conduct a sick visit, we can follow up on previous visits, go over your test results with you, we can fulfill refill requests for patients that have not been seen in the last 6 months or fulfill any refill for a controlled substance, and we can answer any Coronavirus (Covid-19) related questions including to discuss a positive result you received elsewhere.
What do I need to conduct a telemedicine appointment?
All you need is a smartphone or computer with internet access and audio/video capability. We will be using Zoom to conduct this visit so you will need to download the Zoom application on your smartphone or computer (https://zoom.us/download).
How does it work?
A telehealth session is a live, face to face conversation between you and your doctor and essentially functions just like a regular visit to our office. After you call our office to book an appointment or submit online, we will send you a confirmation email with the date and time of your appointment. You will also be getting set-up instructions for your virtual appointment.
What if I don’t want it to be a video call?
That is okay! We will notify the provider and have them call you instead of video chat.
