What to Prepare

How it Works

When you schedule a virtual visit appointment, you will receive a text or email with a secure link prior to your appointment. You may receive a phone call from the office to complete check-in about 15 minutes prior to your appointment. When your appointment time arrives, click on the link and follow the instructions to join your appointment. Make sure the camera and microphone on your computer or device are working properly so your provider will be able to communicate with you. Your provider will join you online to begin your appointment.

A charge will be submitted to your insurance company per usual business practices. You may be responsible for a portion or all of this cost depending on your insurance.
