Telemedicine  technology is frequently used for follow-up visits, management of chronic conditions, medication management, specialist consultation for known patients and a host of other clinical services that can be provided remotely via secure video and audio connections. Patients with smart phones can be scheduled for a video chat with a provider to address most patient issues. Providers can order further testing as necessary and any results discussed in a telemedicine visit can be made available through the patient portal.

Maintaining continuity of care can avoid additional negative consequences from delayed preventive, chronic, or routine care. Do not hesitate to call our office for more information and an appointment. You can be assured CVI will always have your health and safety as our first priority.
