What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine involves the use of technology like laptop computers, smart phones, and telephones to provide clinical services to patients without an in-person visit. Telemedicine technology is frequently used for follow-up visits, management of chronic conditions, specialist consultation and a host of other clinical services that can be provided remotely via secure video and audio connections.

Our goal with Telemedicine Visits:

Telemedicine Visits are an opportunity to connect with your doctor from the comfort of your home, so you don’t have to travel and risk infection with COVID-19.
