Telemedicine is an option for patients with non-urgent problems. Please be aware that there are inherent limitations to the telemedicine platform (i.e. resolution of images, inability to perform procedures). If telemedicine is inappropriate, we will make arrangements for you to be seen in the office.
Please be aware that insurance companies are changing requirements and coverages in regards to telemedicine on a frequent basis. The information listed below is current as of August 6, 2020. If your insurance has come to the expiration date, your policy will not fully reimburse a telemedicine visit.
