Telehealth visits are ideal for times when you need medical advice but don’t require hands-on diagnosis or treatment. Simply connect to our system using a video-enabled smartphone, tablet, or computer, and one of our experienced providers will ask about your medical history and symptoms, then supply you with customized care recommendations.

The Benefits of Online Doctor Visits

Telehealth services are becoming more and more popular, and it’s no wonder why. These online doctor appointments are:

  • Convenient – Traveling to a brick-and-mortar doctor’s office can sometimes be difficult or even impossible. Perhaps your work or school schedule doesn’t leave enough time for you to commute back and forth, or you can’t find someone to watch your children. Or maybe you don’t have access to a car or public transportation. Telehealth allows you to receive the care you need right where you are.
  • Safe – Whether you’re concerned about spreading germs, catching someone else’s illness, or both, telehealth helps minimize exposure.
  • Comfortable – Even if you’re able to leave the house, sometimes you just don’t want to. With our telehealth service, you’ll be able to receive care from the comfort of your bed or couch. You won’t even have to worry about changing out of your pajamas.
