Telemedicine

Telemedicine is the practice of providing clinical care at a distance using telecommunications technology. In other words, it is a method of treating patients using the internet and telephone. For us, this takes form in the use of real-time video visits, secure email, and wearable technology. 

Our physicians are available for virtual video consultations only.  We use a HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform to connect with you. Prior to your initial appointment, we will have you input information into Living Matrix to help us to understand you and your history. We try to be as comprehensive as possible to get to know you, so please allow at least  45 minutes to complete these forms. 

Please know that the physicians will not serve as your primary care providers. We request that you have routine follow up and screening examinations with your primary care provider. Preventative examinations should occur at least once per year and our care and collaborative relationship to improve your health does not replace this care.

How does it work?

To make your experience as seamless as in person care, we use JaneApp as our telemedicine service. When it is time for your appointment, you will receive a link to your email and/or a text message telling you it is time to connect with your physician. Simply click the link to connect with video to your physician. 

During your visit, the physician will share their screen to go over the results from your LivingMatrixTM timeline assessment.
