Telehealth

With Telehealth, patients can use a computer or mobile device to access health care services remotely and manage health care needs. An online patient portal allows patients to see test results, schedule appointments, request prescription refills or email a doctor.

Telehealth allows a patient to discuss symptoms, medical issues, and more with a healthcare provider in real-time via a video call. Using telemedicine, a patient can receive a diagnosis, learn their treatment options, and get a prescription. TELEHEALTH IS PRIVATE, SECURE AND HIPAA COMPLIANT
