What is telehealth?

Telehealth allows you to connect with your health care provider without coming to a clinic. There are two types of visits:

  • Telephone appointment
  • Video appointment using your Android or Apple smartphone

Why telehealth?

Practicing social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is a high priority. It is important to continue serving our patients while reducing their risk for exposure to the virus. During this time, we are offering telehealth because the government has provided waivers to hospitals and health systems for the service.

Call the clinic you wish to visit and request an appointment for a telehealth visit with a provider.
