Telemedicine Visits

Do you offer Telemedicine Visits?
We offer real-time, virtual visits conducted from the safety and comfort of your own home.


How early should I arrive to my appointment?
When you make your appointment, our schedulers will instruct you how early to arrive. We ask that new patients and annual appointments arrive at least 30 minutes early to ensure that we have enough time to update all information. This is especially true for Medicare Annual Wellness visits. There is quite a bit of preparatory work for these appointments and it is important to have this completed before the provider sees you for your visit. Completing the required preparatory work before you arrive if possible, or arriving early enough to complete it helps ensure smooth and on time care for all patients.

What To Bring

What should I bring with me to my appointment?
Please be sure to bring your insurance card, driver’s license or photo ID, copay, current medications or medication list, and any questions you have for your provider during your visit.
