Virtual Care Visit Tips
To help us provide you the best care, please:
Treat this like an in-office visit. Have all of your medications and health logs with you. Be prepared with your list of questions, concerns or symptoms.
Find a place that is both quiet and private. It is important to have a space where you can focus your attention and discuss sensitive topics if needed.
Ensure you have a strong internet connection.
