Telemedicine
 
 
 
After relocating from the rural areas of the Eastern Sierra, we began offering telemedicine appointments for our longtime patients and clients. We would like to offer you our continued care by telemedicine.

Telemedicine has become a leading way in which specialty medical care is offered in rural areas, and we are happy to be able to offer it to you. Appointments will take place by means of a videoconferencing application, much like Skype, but designed to be secure for healthcare purposes. You will be able to sign on from any computer or smartphone connected to the Internet or Wi-Fi. Some mobile phones can operate VSee even without Wi-Fi access. You can have your appointment from home, or from anywhere that is convenient for you. 
 

Meeting by telemedicine is not the same as meeting in person, but our experience is that it works well for most people. This is especially true for patients who already have an established in-person relationship with their doctor. We will also continue to accept new patients from the Eastern Sierra and anywhere in the State of California. Insurance companies will reimburse for telemedicine visits; you should call your insurance company to find out details.
