What is a Virtual Visit?
A virtual visit is similar to an office visit, only instead of traveling to see your doctor you can video conference or phone conference with them from your home. Our providers can assess symptoms, make a diagnosis, recommend treatment, and send prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy. This visit will attempt to replicate your office visit however may have limitations due to the communication method. Call your provider's office to determine if a Virtual Visit will work for you. Virtual Visits are simple, efficient, and secure.

How does a Virtual Visit work?
Virtual Visits take place using Doxy.me. Doxy.me is extremely simple and easy. You can access from your desktop, tablet & Smartphone. Just click your physicians personalized room link (like doxy.me/YourDrsName) to join them for a video call. No need to download software or create an account. Just use a browser on a computer or device with a camera and microphone.
What if I need an appointment and I want to see my doctor in-person?
We are taking every precaution to keep our patients safe in this changed environment. Our Faculty is wearing protective gear recommended by CDC to prevent the spread of the condition and we are following all the guidelines in keeping our newly renovated practice clean.
Will my insurance cover a Virtual Visit?
Commercial Insurance carriers as well as Medicare have temporarily expanded their telehealth coverage to respond to the current Public Health Emergency. During this time, you will be able to receive evaluation and management services through telehealth visits (common office visits). This will help ensure you are able to visit with your doctor from your home, without having to go to a doctor’s office or hospital, which puts you and others at risk of exposure to COVID-19. Many commercial insurance carriers have agreed to waive co-pays for virtual visits. Therefore, we will not be collecting co-payment at the time of service but will follow your insurance carriers explanation of benefits regarding billing. Medicare may assess your usual coinsurance and deductible for these services.
