Tips for a seamless visit
Test your internet
Test your internet connection beforehand. You will need to be connected to the internet or Wi-Fi to take part in the virtual visit.
Speak slowly and clearly, and limit movement during your visit unless instructed by your provider. Also, have a list of symptoms and current medications.
Find a quiet space
Be sure you’re in a private, quiet space where you won’t be interrupted. Dress as you would for an in-office visit and examination.
What to wear
Your provider may need to conduct a virtual physical exam, so we recommend wearing loose-fitting clothes that allow your provider to clearly see the area of concern.
Check your volume
Make sure your device is not muted. Adjust the volume as needed.
If this is your first time doing a virtual visit with us, start at least 45 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment so you have enough time to to complete your pre-visit forms and make sure your video connection is correctly set up.
