Telemedicine

Dear Patients,

As of Monday, 3/16/20, we have the ability and the permission of the government to perform telemedicine visits.  Thus far, it seems to work okay.

In order to do this, you will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera.   We will email or text you a link.  All you have to do is click on the link and it will activate your camera and microphone and then connect you to us.  The method we use is HIPPA compliant.  It is fine to use a friend’s device, but we need to know either the email or phone number you wish us to use.  We will try to send the link as close to your appointment as possible, but please allow us a little leeway with timing.  Once you receive the link, you will have ten minutes to respond to it.

If you have an upcoming appointment, and are unable or uncomfortable keeping it, please let us know if we can do this visit by telemedicine.   

Sincerely.

Winchester Internal Medicine
