What is telemedicine?

A telemedicine visit is conducted using a computer or smartphone so you and your provider can see and hear each other. If you're not familiar with telemedicine, don't worry. This is new for all of us, and we're learning together! Many of our patients appreciate the convenience of telemedicine.

When it's time for your appointment, we will email and/or text you a link to click to start your appointment.
