Telemedicine Q & A

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is an online appointment by way of a two-way, encrypted, real-time interaction between patient and a healthcare provider. This service is similar to a FaceTime/Skype application and requires a strong Internet connection. The appointment is supported by the use of a computer or any mobile device with a webcam, microphone and secure Internet connection.

Telemedicine allows you to meet with your healthcare provider as if you had driven to our office. If your condition requires a hands-on examination, we will require an in-office visit.

Are Telemedicine appointments covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies typically cover Telemedicine appointments. Patients will be charged the same co-pay and/or deductible as an in-person visit.
