UH Virtual Consult for Facial Paralysis Rehabilitation and Reanimation Procedures

Our virtual visit services include online video and telephone appointments. With virtual visits, you can access many of the same services you would receive during a traditional in-person appointment. These include remote symptom monitoring, diagnosis and treatment, prescriptions and other medical services.

Schedule a Virtual Consultation

A virtual consultation with a UH facial plastic surgeon offers these benefits:

Prompt evaluation and treatment. Virtual consults are scheduled within 24 to 48 hours after you contact us, so the most effective treatment(s) for you, which may include participation in a clinical trial, can be determined and quickly begin. Establishing a trusting relationship with one of our surgeons, understanding your options and being involved in your own treatment decisions can help reduce anxiety and disability throughout your treatment and recovery journey.

Convenience. With a virtual consult, there is no need to travel. You can talk to one of our facial plastic surgeons from the comfort of your own home or office.

Affordable. Virtual consultations are among the most affordable options for care, costing about the same as a traditional office visit copay. We accept all major insurance plans.

Second opinion consults available. If you have already spoken to a facial plastic surgeon about your facial paralysis and rehabilitation options, it is always beneficial to get a second opinion. UH offers virtual consultations for both initial assessments and second opinion appointments.


UH Offers Personalized, Comprehensive Facial Paralysis Treatment

Whether you choose a virtual or in-person consultation with a facial plastic surgeon at University Hospitals, the care and recommendations for facial paralysis and reanimation treatment you receive will be exceptional. We have the most innovative program in the region, providing our patients with:

  • A highly personalized relationship with your facial plastic surgeon. When you choose UH, you will experience a unique level of access to your specialist that begins with the initial consultation and continues throughout the treatment journey, the recovery period and beyond.
  • Access to innovative care. In addition, our physicians are involved in national and international clinical trials that are focused on finding new and better treatments for facial paralysis. These options in treatment will be presented to patients during the consultation when appropriate.

During your virtual consultation, you will meet with a surgeon who specializes in ear, balance and skull base pathology to discuss your diagnosis and treatment options. We encourage patients to make a list of questions and concerns they have and discuss them with the doctor.

By the end of your appointment, your surgeon will provide you with their expert recommendations and your next steps for receiving the care you need.
