Video Visits with Your Primary Care Provider

For simple medical appointments that do not require a physical examination, your doctor may offer the option of a video visit to save you time and travel. These are secure, online video chats that enable you to see the provider, ask questions and carry on a dialogue just as you would in the office.

These visits are available by appointment only. Your doctor's office can advise you on whether a video visit is appropriate for your situation and provide you with detailed instructions on how to connect. In order to participate in a video visit, you will need:

  • A smart phone or tablet with a working camera and microphone.
  • A strong connection to the internet (Wi-Fi, cellular data or broadband internet).

Next time you need an appointment, ask your primary care provider if this type of visit is right for you.
