Telemedicine for patients

We are pleased to offer you a new, exceptionally easy to use telemedicine option, which provides a wonderful way to connect with each other during this challenging time. As we all learn to cope with the current need to shelter at home and practice social distancing, telemedicine visits have proven to be a very convenient alternative to in-office appointments for check-ins, prescription refills and other routine matters. The platform, called Doxy.me, is accessed through a simple link we’ll send by text or email before our virtual visit.

In this video, learn about the patient benefits of telemedicine. If you would like to learn more information, visit our website at https://doxy.me/ or email ...
