Why TeleMedicine?

These are unprecedented times for patients and doctors around the world. But we are resilient and innovative and TeleMedicine is one way to cope with our current reality. It allows for patients and their families to seek care while in the comfort and safety of their home in many, but not all, cases. This supports the public health recommendation of “social distancing.”

What is TeleMedicine

TeleMedicine is medical examination, evaluation and treatment rendered over a “face-to-face” electronic audio/video connection. We are piloting the use of an application, doxy.me, for this purpose.

Important Notes

Most insurance companies understand the importance of these visits and offer them at no cost to the patient (including copay, deductible and coinsurance). We cannot verify this for you. Your insurance company will be billed for the visit.
