Telemedicine is a secure way to see your doctor over video. A telemedicine visit allows you to see your doctor face-to-face over video and receive the same care as an in-office appointment. Telemedicine for patients is easy. Use your iPhone, iPad, Android, or any computer with a camera and microphone. Simply follow the instructions our office will send you after scheduling a telemedicine visit.  We will send you a link via email, which will connect and join your doctor on a secure video visit.
