We can answer your health-related questions, help manage chronic conditions like asthma or diabetes, and order any necessary labs or prescriptions. If we are unable to treat your problem remotely, we will be happy to refer you to a primary provider, urgent care, or emergency room where your problem can be evaluated in-person.
When appropriate, your provider may prescribe medication for you. Please note that antibiotics are not always medically appropriate, and may or may not be prescribed. We are unable to write prescriptions for narcotics or other controlled substances. Please see your Primary Care Provider in person if you require medication classified as a controlled substance.
We cannot treat Emergencies or other conditions requiring an in-person physical exam. If you are experiencing a medical condition that is urgent or life threatening, you should proceed immediately to the nearest Urgent Care, Emergency Room, or call 911.

This can be accessed from the browser on your computer, or you can download the app to your smartphone or tablet.
You will also be asked for ID at the beginning of the consult, so please have that ready.If you have the ability to take your pulse, check your temperature, blood pressure, or weight, please do so prior to your consult and record the measurements for your provider.

Video consults are preferred, however, if you do not have an internet connection or cellular data is not available, you can use the phone option. Please let us know in advance if you are not able to use video.
A few minutes before your appointment time, just click the link you received to be placed in the ‘waiting room,’ where your provider will join you and start your visit.
